Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: How is this course run?
A: This course is administered via Google Classroom. This a platform that's highly intuitive and easy for students to understand — they often use similar platforms like Schoology, Blackboard, or Canvas 
at school. There are pre-recorded videos and guides that walk students through exactly how to plan, structure, and write their responses, along with examples and templates.

Q: What if my student has a question? Whom can they talk to?
A: We utilize an easy-to-use platform called Padlet, for students to ask and answer questions. One of our instructors (all alumni of T-25 universities) will respond to the student, typically within a couple of hours with a detailed and comprehensive response. They can also see responses to other students' questions that have already been asked and answered. If the student has further questions, they can always send us a note via WhatsApp or email. We are highly responsive and committed to ensuring that students get all of their questions answered.

Q: How long does this course take? 

A: In total, it takes approximately 70 hours to review and complete all of the material this course. We have had successful students complete a previous version of this course in as little as 2 weeks, and as long as 4 years. The most successful students review all of the materials (sometimes multiple times), and engage by frequently asking questions as they arise.

Q: How long does the student get course access for?
A: The student receives access until the end of their senior year, regardless of when they registered. For example, a student who signs up in 6th grade would have access to the material until 12th grade, along with any updates we made to the course -- at no additional cost. It is to your advantage to start early. We avoid the gimmicks of monthly or annual fees to encourage students to start as early as possible.

Q: Is there a sibling discount?

A: Yes! We have a $100 discount per family, for any families with two siblings who are enrolled in any of our courses in the same year. This will be applied as a credit back to your original payment method. After signing up, please email us to receive this discount.

A: Yes, so long as there is a seat available in Gold T
