Education separates a child from the daily content of life.
~ John Taylor Gatto

    Church School Questionniare

    Things to consider when choosing a church school:

    Is church attendance by either parent required?

    Is any type of religious teaching required?

    Does the church school require families to use a particular curriculum?

    Is the church school open to only members of a certain faith or open to all homeschoolers?

    Is HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association) membership required?

    Does the church school require you to attend regular meetings?

    Do you need a lot of support, such as choosing curriculum, finding resources, keeping records? Will the church school offer such assistance? Do they have advisors available by e-mail or telephone?

    How much is tuition? Is it per family or per child? Is it a yearly, quarterly, or monthly tuition?

    How much record keeping are you required to keep? Are you comfortable with that level of record keeping?

    Does the church school provide any services? E-mail list? Support group? Lending library? Field trips? Dual enrollment? Transcripts? Diploma? Workshops?

    Does the church school require academic instruction to be done during certain hours? How many days each year?

    Do you need a church school that will accept single parents? Working parents? Someone other than the parent doing the main academic instruction? If so, be upfront with the church school about this.

    Does the church school require a particular method of instruction? Will the church school be comfortable with the way you wish to homeschool (unschool)?

    How does the church school keep members informed of activites and events? Website? E-mail list? Newsletter?

    Does the church school offer the activities you and your family are interested in? If not, is there a support group you can join that will provide those activites? Or do you need to find a different church school that will provide those activites?

    Does the church school keep your records and transcripts? Or are you expected to keep track of such paperwork?

    Does the church school require grades? Testing?

    Does the church school provide a diploma? Is more than one type of diploma offered?

Let's talk about learning and education as it should be, as it can be!

For The Children’s Sake
Foundations of Education for Home and School

by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay
A book about what education can be--for your child, in your home, and in your school. It is based first on a Christian understanding of what it means to be human--to be a child, a parent, a teacher--and on the Christian meaning of life. At the same time it is deeply practical.

Christian Unschooling
Growing Your Children in the Freedom of Christ

by Teri J. Brown, Elissa M. Wahl
Utilizes the essays of Christian, unschooling parents from across the United States and Canada to reveal a new way of homeschooling-one that is respectful of the child, the parents and the way God created children to be.
