Affiliate Branch Academies
A WCFS Affiliate Academy is a member of WCFS' Heritage Educational License Program (HELP). Upon completing the WCFS Educational License Agreement, member programs are granted the use of the proprietary WCFS academic administrative system to provide their students with credentials and transcripts from the widely recognized WCFS program.
Affiliate schools may adopt the turnkey WCFS program, or creatively adapt our program to fit their philosophy and needs. Once approved, all certifications and approvals held by WCFS are extended to all member schools in good standing.

What does a License Provide?
A WCFS Educational License Agreement provides a complete academic oversight system and administration. Our system approves courses, verifies the quality of student work and provides academic transcripts that conform to the standards of most post-secondary institutions, including a WCFS high school diploma. The WCFS program provides detailed steps of administration for affiliates. These include a statement of philosophy and purpose, the specifics of the educational program, instruction methods, curriculum and student records for elementary and/or high school. High school credits will be awarded by the Carnegie-styled QSU® developed by WCFS.
Is There Flexibility?
WCFS is designed with the home in mind. Not only do approved courses fit into the home environment seamlessly, but we have developed an outstanding system for taking many opportunities at home and making creditworthy courses. These courses express the dynamic of each unique home school student.
Flexibility is the chief component of the WCFS program and philosophy. An affiliate academy may use our system as a turnkey operation or modify it in keeping with the core standards established by the license program. Member schools are trained and approved through an initial application process. Final approval means that the license holder is in satisfactory compliance with all WCFS system requirements.
How Do We Join the WCFS System?
Upon application and payment of certain fees, the applicant’s administrative staff attend a training seminar in which the WCFS system is taught and details of the program are set forth. The applicant’s educational program is developed and approved according to the agreement.
The affiliate school will have a minimum of 1-2 years to complete all the necessary development of their program. WCFS will be available throughout the process to assist member schools with details of compliance and implementation. Details for approval and the license agreement may be had upon request.
