Program structure

Education

They use the School of Tomorrow Curriculum also known as the Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) workbook curriculum provided by School of Tomorrow [3]. School of Tomorrow requries that just one person in an entire school be "certified" to use the curriculum. This certification is NOT from any state agency. It is issued by School of Tomorrow. This enables schools to use the curriculum without having any certified teachers by the State.

As stated in their information material they can not promise that credits earned at this school can be used anywhere:

Parents are encouraged to personally check with their local school districts or colleges in which their children are interested to find out what their particular policies are regarding admissions and transferring credits. This mainly pertains to High School credits. [4]

Communication

If a girl behaves accordingly with program guidelines they are granted a 15 minutes phonecall with their parents. The phonecall is monitored by speaker phone and the staff can decide to quit the call if the teenager complains about the program [5]
