We love to encourage, equip, and educate families in all seasons of their homeschooling journeys.

In today’s world, many families are looking to home educate for a variety of reasons. Maybe their child is falling between the cracks because of special needs and/or giftedness. Public school is becoming a hodge-podge of controversial views that shouldn’t be placed upon a young child’s mind. Young children should be focused on more innocent and less burdensome topics. Let kids be kids…one of the greatest benefits of homeschooling!

Homeschooling is not always easy. There are myriad tasks that must be accomplished in a period of one day. Moms who choose to homeschool take on a tremendous responsibility. You, as a mom, are your children’s one and only teacher and are responsible for their well-rounded education…in ALL core subjects regardless of whether you are academically trained to do so or not. That is scary to say the least, and you may constantly worry that you will fail miserably at your dual role as mother and teacher.

 

We are here to help!

Specially-focused tracks presented by true experts in their fields will address homeschooling trouble spots. Homeschooling isn’t easy. Parenting can be harder.
