The Courage of Our Capacity

In God's power, we can do what God has called us to do. We must have "the courage which assures us that we can do the particular work which comes in our way, and will not lend an ear to the craven fear which reminds us of failures in the past and unfitness in the present."

You CAN transition into AO

Transitioning to AO was the best decision I have made in my homeschool journey. AO has made me feel at peace! I don’t have to search for our next box curriculum anymore. You CAN transition into AO with all of the support available to us locally, on the forum, AO website, and Facebook. Moms are available to help and support you in your AO education.

Shakespeare – The Play’s the Thing

Second only to the King James Bible, Shakespeare is indisputably one of the greatest bedrocks of Western civilization in English. If you are unsure of why or how to teach Shakespeare in your homeschool or co-op, come let me show you how to get started.

We're All In This Together: Building and Growing In a Homeschool Community is Essential

There is a saying that goes something like, "it takes a village to raise a child;" this is true. We can't do life in isolation. As home educators we must seek to intentionally build community. We are designed and created for relationship. Maturing and growing as Christians, mothers, and home educators is part of the wonderful adventure of the homeschool life. We need others around us for support, to challenge us, to guide us, and for encouragement. We also need others growing alongside us whose desires are to steward the time we have with our children well.

Teen Activities

Several of our AO dads will lead the teen activities as they play games and have discussion. This will be a great opportunity for teens to spend time with others who have similar educational backgrounds and interests. There will be both active and sedentary activities available.
