This is a list of Frequently Asked Questions we have received. If the answer to your question is not here, feel free to email us at

A: Double-check to make sure the email address you entered was correct. If it still doesn't go through, check your spam folder to see if your email was redirected. If the filters on your email server are set very high, they may block the email address from Home Grown Programmers so it cannot even get to your spam folder, and you may need to reset the filters briefly, or contact us via phone or skype so we can give it to you manually, and then you can change your password the first time you log in.

A: The username and password is for your security while you enter your payment information. You can click on the link to create a new account, and enter a username and your valid email address. An email will be sent to that address with your username and a password, and if you click on the URL link, it will take you to the login, and then you will be able to check out.

A: The best overall class for beginners (especially if they're not yet completely comfortable with their computer) is Telecommuting 101, which goes over all the tools we use in our classrooms and how to work effectively online, time management, etc. The best beginning programming class is VBScript 101, which is a basic programming language, and the class addresses the general concepts needed for programming languages.

A: Our classes are available for 12-18 year-olds (middle school and high school ages). If you would like us to make an exception, you can contact us so we can evaluate the situation, though we can't guarantee acceptance until age 12.

A: Not at all. Generally we would encourage students to work according to the class schedule, so they can interact with their fellow students during the classes. Also, since we are still developing new classes, there may be some that will not become available until a specific time. However, the class flow isn't set in stone, either. So if you finish early, and want to continue, we will work with you as much as we can as far as starting new classes or providing extra individual projects or challenges to deepen the learning in the subject! Our goal is to challenge students and give them all the opportunities they want to learn, so that they can succeed and grow as quickly as they want to.

A: Yes, they can! Parents are encouraged to complete the class and submit assignments and take quizzes for enhanced learning as they audit the class, though it is not required.

A: Our classes are designed so each student may do the class according to their own time schedule, without being required to be present at any specific time. You may want to check with your class instructor to see if he has any specific office hours he will be available to students on skype.

A: Generally we expect homeschoolers will want to do a session a week (10 sessions per class), and we estimate that completing the lesson will involve a commitment of 2-4 hours a week.
