Cumberland Home School Academy / Home schooling online
Cumberland Home School Academy goes by other names also. Phoenix Sunrise Institute, Phoenix Sunrise Academy and hometutorhelp.com
All of these are associated. We signed our 14 year old grandson up with them for online homeschooling. We paid upfront for the program by credit card.
The program was supposed to be available for him to start on Sept. 5th, 2007. After going through several weeks of online evaluations, it is now November 14th and he still has not been able to start the course work. They say there is a problem and they can not put new students into the scheduling portion of the program due to a computer glich. We have tried to be patient and work with them while "fixing" the problem. This has gone on for weeks!!
Now, we see that they are still recruiting on their website at half off the regular price.
So, if you look into using them, I would not. They are only somewhat good at letting us know what is going on and we do not get regular updates while they "work" on the problem. We have sort of been "left out to dry".
At this point I would not recommend getting involved with any of these companies.
