Homeschool Mission Statement

  • Our purpose in homeschooling is to give our children an individualized, quality education with a solid foundation of civilized values, moral character, ethical standards, and honest charity that promote the individual and common good.

  • Our belief is that learning is a lifelong adventure in which the whole family shares; and that children minds readily absorb knowledge when they have stability in their surroundings, love, encouragement, and discipline, together with the freedom to wonder, explore, imagine, and ask questions.

  • Our goal is for our children to be independent thinkers, able to learn at their own pace, pursue their own interests, and develop confidence and self-discipline in the comfort and security of their own home. We foster and promote doing good and living well in the hear and now, and leaving the world a better place for those who come after.

  • Our plan is to love, encourage, teach, and correct our children; to protect them from negative peer pressure, false teachings, and bad temptations that would harm their developing spirit; and to surround our children with authority figures who believe that we should be excellent to each other.

  • Our hope is that we will raise our children to do their best, to realize their special talents, to be concerned for the needs of others, to become responsible citizens, to be morally wise, to be skillful and knowledgeable in every area that will be useful to them in their future, and to grow up to live fulfilling lives that positively contribute to society.
