SMM Academy is offering a $19.99 (nonrefundable) promotion for students who sign up early to try out the 3 base subjects (Pre-AP chemistry, AP Physics 1 and AP Calculus AB or Algebra 2) for the month of September 2019. Students who feel that they do not have the algebra 2 math skills necessary to advance to AP Calculus AB may switch this option for algebra 2. Candidates can study Pre-AP chemistry and/or AP physics 1 while taking Algebra 2 concurrently. At or before the end of this promotion period, students can choose to withdraw or continue with any combination of these courses. The Promotion sign up period August 4 - September 2, 2019. Candidates (minors) and their parents can sign up for the promotions online or at a promotional event.
The tuition for the courses for the 2019-2020 academic year is free, but only students who wish to have a certificate for each course will be accepted for registration. The administrative costs for the certificates are as follows;
- Science: $180.00
- Calculus: $150.00
Each course runs from September 3, 2019 to the May 2, 2020.
The certificate for the science courses is more expensive because of the required lab component. There are approximately 12 labs for each course and in some universities, single semester lab science courses are worth 4 credits compared to the regular non-lab courses which are worth 3 credits.
Promotion students who sign-up for all three basic courses online or at a promotional event are eligible for a 5% reduction in the certificate fees. Further, they will also be eligible for a further 2% reduction in the certificate fee cost if they pay in full on or before September 30, 2019.
Classes begin on Tuesday September 3, 2019.
Promotion students will also get an opportunity to pay for the certificate in two parts, if they elect to continue. This means that the initially they pay 50% of the certificate fee per course less the promotional amount on or before 9/30/19 and the second 50% on or before 11/30/2019.
