That's the only school I know of, where you can do the JAA ATP theory (provided you already hold an ICAO CPL/IR) without attending any presence ground class.

Not possible in accordance with Appendix 1 to JAR–FCL 1.285 section 4.
Classroom attendance is mandatory for JAR ATPL theory unless you have an exemption due to converting from another ICAO ATPL etc.

The brushup courses are mandatory for distance learning unless you hold a non-JAA ATPL.
Edit: Big Grecian beat me to it
I heard that in Switzerland, they also don't require any ground school but I don't know if that is true or not.
Edit: looks like Transsonic beat me to it
Anything with no ground school is not JAA compliant.

True, but JAA is not regulatory. EASA will be regulatory. Until EASA is in full effect, you will find variations from country to country.
