About the course

This course will aid both homeschool parents and former public school educators in renewing their minds to Christ-centered educational philosophies and methods. This course also is suitable for senior thesis level preparation toward a career in Christian education. If my live times do not match your schedule, I will make arrangements to meet on your schedule. If you prefer an accelerated version of the course to complete in 6 months, we can set the due dates to align with that.

May God bless you, and as Peter said in I Peter 3:8, “knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.”
