A Homeschool Co-op for High Schoolers
As a homeschool co-op, we have parent and teacher involvement in education. We aim to provide a biblically-based educational environment and to help parents raise a healthy and maturing love for Jesus in their children. Biblically, the foundation of all education is: “The love-filled worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His precepts have good understanding” (Psalm 111:10). And “The love-filled worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7). “Children are a GIFT from God” (Psalm 127:3). They have been given to us to love and nurture and raise into men and women of God who will bring great glory to His name! Concerning the teachings of the Lord: Parents, “you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise” (Deuteronomy 6:7). “Train up a child in the way they should go, and when he is old, they will not turn from it” (Proverbs 22:6). God is on this journey with us as we raise this generation of young people.
The program is a 51% parent and 49% teacher-led program as a homeschool co-op. This keeps the program in the homeschool category and is therefore NOT a private school. There is in-class teaching and independent work that the student is responsible for. A combination of teacher and parent involvement in each student’s education is needed for the student’s success.
The purpose of our partnership with parents:
- To raise a generation of young people who know, love, fear, and walk-in intimate friendship with God.
- To empower these young people into loving service of Him.
- To educate these young people into their God-given talents and genius.
