Have Questions About Logos?
Take a look at these common questions. Need more info? Use the contact form below.
How do I find out about your program?
We require that anyone interested in Logos attend an ‘Informational Meeting’. At the informational meeting, you will learn about our program and get your questions answered so you can decide if Logos is the right fit for your student and family. Please click here to sign up to attend an informational meeting: http://www.logoscharter.com/enrollment/
What does a “typical day” look like in your program?
Each student at Logos has their own individualized curriculum based on their learning level and style, so a “typical day” is determined by the schedule you as their learning coach and your teacher create. Review our Tips for Success on how a students schedule might look and gain insight into successful home-based education practices.

Is it possible to enroll during the last quarter of the school year or at other times during the school year?
Yes, you can enroll anytime at Logos and will be admitted as long as we have space available. For grades K-8 it is wise to enroll this year because it would ensure your entry for next school year. That said, if your child is in grades 9-12 we do not recommend leaving your school until you have an official account of your grades and credits earned for the current grading period.
My boys both attend Logos currently and next year I would like my daughter to attend also. What do I need to do to enroll her?
If you have children currently enrolled in Logos, please fill out the “intent to return” document provided by your ES to hold a place for the sibling. Then pick up an enrollment form at Logos for your daughter and turn it in after June 1st for the next school year.
I’m interested in finding out if this is the best option for my child but I have never been a homeschool parent. What should I do?

How do you support parents of homeschoolers?
Each student at Logos is assigned their own Education Specialist (ES), which is a licensed teacher. The ‘ES’ helps parents plan the best learning strategies for the student and helps choose curriculum and classes. The ES meets with parents and students weekly and will aid in addressing specific learning needs, testing, connections to our community education partners and campus classes to accomplish education goals. Logos also provides a ‘Student Success Team’ that provides tutoring every day of the week for help in any subject. This just begins to scratch the surface of ways we support parents!
We live in the Phoenix school district. Would we still be able to participate with Logos?
Yes, we enroll students who live in any district in Jackson or Josephine Counties. Our students come from the districts of Ashland, Butte Falls, Central Point, Eagle Point, Grants Pass, Medford, Phoenix/Talent, Prospect, Rogue River and Three Rivers.
We registered to attend the 7-12 Informational Meeting, but I can’t remember which date I signed up for; does it matter which one we attend?
Please call our front desk at 541.842.3658 and our staff will tell you which date you are scheduled to attend. We ask that you attend on the date that you registered for due to space constraints of our meeting room.
My daughter is a Junior at another high school and when she completes this year, she will only need two more classes to meet the requirements for graduation in Oregon. Do you offer summer school classes that she can take to finish out her high school graduation requirements?
We do have a summer school program! It is eight weeks long and begins one week after the last day of school. Because it is outside of our normal academic calendar there is tuition for this program. Each course is $100 and if the student completes and passes the course during the eight weeks they will receive a $50 refund. All courses are online with several online options and teacher support is available.
Is it too late to try to get my son registered for 3rd grade with LOGOS?
We enroll students at any time during the school year. Please attend an informational meeting and then fill out the enrollment packet you will be provided. If there aren’t openings at the time you wish to enroll, you will be put on a waitlist until an opening becomes available. http://www.logoscharter.com/enrollment/
I am interested in learning more about homeschooling and how it all works.
We believe that if homeschooling is done well, it is a great thing for families and offers a bright future for kids! Logos began because many parents interested in homeschooling want support such as guidance from a licensed teacher, curriculum choices, options for campus classes, field trips and more. We would love to help you start your season of homeschooling and assist you in developing an enriching homeschooling schedule. We are here to help!

My daughter no longer wants to go to her current school due to bullying. She needs a positive environment. Should we do Logos?
We are here to help! We have a lot of families that never thought of homeschooling, however, bullying, health concerns, and/or a personalized plan for their child has drawn them to Logos. People will attest that our school has a very positive atmosphere because we have a great staff and wonderful families and students! Your first step would be to attend an informational meeting to find out more and get all your questions answered. If we have an opening (and sometimes that depends on the time of year), you can get in quickly. You’ll never regret getting to spend more time with your child making a difference in their life!
Do you have any general information about Logos?
A student enrolls and meets with their assigned teacher who will help them pick out curriculum that is personalized with the child in mind. The teacher then meets with the family weekly in a mutually agreed upon location (home, Logos, local library, etc), depending on what works best for you. The teacher works with you and your child on a schedule and helps work with you both (but mostly the student) at the weekly meeting. We also have campus classes for enrichment and academics every week at our facility, classes taught by Community Education Partners, field trips, competitions, and other social activities that make Logos an incredible place to be! Watch our recent video about Logos to get a view of our program.
What is your early college program for high schoolers?
The Logos Scholars Academy offers high school students the opportunity to attend Rogue Community College and/or Southern Oregon University FOR FREE part-time or full-time to earn dual credits. That means the college credits apply towards high school graduation. Students meet regularly with an advisor who provides course selection guidance, educational goal & career planning, resources, financial aid planning and more!
I am wondering about the “lottery” that is referenced on the website. How likely is it that our kids will have the opportunity to start Logos in the coming Fall?
Logos students live all over the Southern Oregon region, however, the number of students we can have (the “cap”) is set by Medford School District 549c and is currently 1,000 students. If we have reached our cap of 1,000 students, State law requires that we go through a lottery process. Typically students who enroll in June and early July for the following school year get accepted but by mid-July, the waitlist starts filling up. We suggest that you attend an Informational Meeting right away so that you are prepared to get your application in when enrollment starts on June 1 of each year.
Further FAQ on the “lottery”
The law requires that each year we enroll students in this order:
- Current students
- Siblings of current students
- New students
The lottery also requires that we enroll students residing in Medford first, and then students outside of Medford after that. Each round of lottery drawings are based on this. Don’t fret if you live outside of Medford as people outside of Medford are not continually pushed lower. For more questions or to find out where you are on the list, email our Registrar Shawna Pratt (after June 1st).
