FOR COLLEGE CREDIT
TPS – The Potter’s School is a non-profit regionally accredited online school that provides a full range of core and elective courses for grades 4 through 12. Established in 1997, TPS has a worldwide reputation for academic excellence. TPS serves both full-time diploma students and part-time students taking only selective subjects from TPS. Please review the TPS School Profile.
TPS provides fully interactive classrooms to students worldwide, even in remote locations with limited connectivity. Our interactive live classes feature high-quality audio, chat, camera video, interactive slide presentations, shared whiteboard, screen share, breakout rooms, and more. Classes are recorded to allow for occasional missed class make-up.
TPS teachers provide frequent timely individual feedback for evaluation and improvement. Teachers are also available on a reasonable basis to provide help outside of class by email, office hours, group meeting, or an occasional individual meeting.
Students view class messages, track assignments, submit work, and view grades and feedback through an interface that allows them to manage all their courses in one place. Parents have a single interface to oversee assignments, grades and feedback for all of their students and courses.
Upon completion of a course, all records remain accessible indefinitely, and parents can print grade reports or request accredited transcripts.
TPS offers self-print grade reports and transcripts accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. TPS also provides transcripts to NCAA for student athletes. More information on TPS grade reports and transcripts…
TPS welcomes part-time enrollment by students taking one or more subjects, but we recommend full-time enrollment for the added benefits of the Diploma Program. Every student (full-time or part-time) receives the same top-quality instruction, feedback, and evaluation regardless of how many courses are enrolled. However, full-time Diploma Program students receive additional benefits. TPS offers two levels of high school diploma, Standard and Honors. More information on the TPS Diploma Program…
TPS offers a number of upper high school courses for both high school and college credit. These courses are designated as “College Credit” in the Course Catalog details for each course. To receive college credit for the eligible courses, once the course is successfully completed the student registers with Belhaven University, pays the course setup fee and transcript fee, and requests the transcript from Belhaven.

TPS AP course students are top scorers on AP exams, and most get scores of 4 or 5. More information on TPS AP® courses…
Placement approval requirements are posted in the Prerequisites section for each course in the course catalog. Placement approval materials and placement tests are due immediately (same day) when enrolling in a course (no extensions, sorry!). Your initial tuition payment is due just after we send you placement approval for the course.
Initial payment is due just after you hold a confirmed approved seat in a course. Subsequent payment due dates depend on the start date (full year, summer, fall, spring) of each class. Special payment plans are also available. More information on tuition payments…
TPS classes can be taken on Windows, Mac and Chromebook computers. 2 Mbps or higher stable internet is recommended (slower speeds work but reduce the quality of the class, and higher speeds improve the class experience). We support the Chrome and Firefox browsers (others generally work but we don’t support them). More information on TPS technical requirements…
