Eastside Academic Studies



Are you a school?

We are not a school in the traditional sense. While we do have an organizational structure for administrative purposes (scheduling, room assignments), the individual teachers set their own requirements, curriculum, and costs. However, registration is done through this website. Essentially, we are a group of teachers who wish to provide classes to the homeschooling community, but each teacher has control over his or her classes. While we use the classrooms at Lilburn Alliance Church, questions about Eastside's classes should not be directed to the church office. Contact any teacher or Michelle Shaw, the Director.

Where are you located?

Lilburn Alliance Church 5915 Lawrenceville Highway Tucker, GA 30084 LAC is on Lawrenceville Highway, one mile east of Jimmy Carter Blvd.; 1/2 mile west of Harmony Grove Road. It is very convenient to Lilburn, Tucker, Chamblee, Doraville, Norhtlake, Norcorss, and Stone Mountain. Exit at Jimmy Carter Blvd., exit #99 Go east on Jimmy Carter for 3.8 miles (from the south, turn right on Jimmy Carter Blvd.; from the north, turn left on Jimmy Carter, crossing over the bridge) Turn left on US29/Lawrenceville Hwy. for 1 mile Lilburn Alliance will be on the left.  Click here for Google Map.

How do I sign up?

  1. Create an account.  The webserver will verify that you are using a valid email address.

  2. Click on "My Account", then "Students", then "Add Student", and add your student(s) to the system.

  3. Browse the available courses, and for each course that you wish to enroll in, click the Enroll button to add a registration for this course to your shopping cart.

  4. As you check out, the system will ask you which of your students is enrolling in each course.

  5. You will be directed to a PayPal page to pay the registration fee.  You do not need to have a PayPal account.  PayPal will process a debit card, a credit card, or a PayPal payment.

Are Eastside classes accredited?

Many accredited programs make use of our classes. Ivy Manor Preparatory Academy (IMPA), St. Nicholas Academy, Northeast Independent Preparatory Academy (NIPA), Paragon Academy, Parkview Christian Academy and TNT Academy have used courses from our instructors for accredited diplomas for homeschool families. While our program is not formally affiliated with any particular accreditation program, our families have used many of our classes with these accrediting agencies. Homeschoolers seeking accredited diplomas from these or other organizations, as well as those not seeking accreditation, are all welcome in our classes.

How do I know what is best for my family - accreditation or non-accreditation?

Our teachers as a body do not endorse an accredited plan over a non-accredited one. In making this choice, each family should consult a sampling of colleges that a student might be applying to in order to determine expectations for high school transcripts and testing needs. Families interested in seeking an accredited diploma may use one of many third party accreditation agencies to get their entire high school course of study approved for an accredited diploma.

Is my registration fee refundable?

No. Our teachers make decisions on the number of students who sign up for the class, purchase materials and make preparations. That fee will not be refunded.

Can I transfer my registration fee to another class if my student switches classes?

If you need to switch an enrollment to a different class, contact us and let us know.

I have to pay a separate registration fee for every class?

Yes. Every class is run separately. A person has the option of signing up for one class or multiple classes.

How do I know what perspective a teacher will take on certain issues my family feels strongly about?

Please ask teachers up front about issues that may come up in classwork that might concern you. We screen our teachers as to adherence to the Christian faith and their history in teaching in their field, but we know that our teachers come from a variety of Christian perspectives and worship at many different churches. They are best able themselves to answer questions you may have regarding material and views covered in their classes. You may also choose to observe classes during the school year to get a feel for a teacher's teaching method and materials--notify the teacher ahead to be sure there is not a conflict with your visit.

Can I preview a class to see if it will be right for my child?

Most likely. Most of our teachers are happy for parents to come in and preview a class. You do need to get the teacher's permission first, OR visit on one of our Open House dates (see calendar).

What if my student has 90 minutes between classes?

We have several study halls set up with either teachers or paid Parent Monitors who supervise students on the premises who are not in an academic class. Click on the Register for Class link for the current school year to get a copy of the Study Hall Registration Form.

How much parental supervision is needed for student homework?

Elementary classes require the greatest amount of adult supervision. For middle school classes, we recommend that parents look over all homework being turned in before the student brings it to class. For high school classes, the work should be done independently without parental help as much as possible.

How much homework is required?

This varies between teachers. Typically, there will be homework and activities for the 4 days of the week the student is working at home.

What is the likelihood that a class will cancel?

If the class description notes that there must be a minimum number of students registered for the class to be taught, please contact the teacher prior to registering.

How do I know if a class is full?

If a class is full, the "Register for class" button will not appear.

How do I get in touch with the teacher to get more details about the class being offered?

See our Instructors page.  Most teachers will have a contact form on this site that you can use to reach them.  All class-related questions should be directed to the teachers.

Where can I get descriptions of the classes being offered?

See the Courses page for the current school year. There you will find the classes, the teachers teaching them, what grade levels they're offered for, a description, and costs.

How do I find out what day and time a class is being offered?

See the Weekly Schedule for the current school year. We offer classes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Additionally, contact the teacher directly to see if the class has other scheduling possibilities or if the class is filling up.



Parents and students are invited to visit classes during the school day.  See the Weekly Schedule at EastsideAcademicStudies.com for the days and times of classes.
