NEW HOMESCHOOL ACADEMY INFO MEETING

Onward Christian School is a university model homeschool organization which hopes to open a pilot program for the 2016-17 academic year for K-5 students and ideally will grow to K-12 in future years. Classes will meet two days per week. They are holding an informational meeting on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 at 7p at the Forest Public Library. Please RSVP via their ‘Public Information Meeting’ Facebook event page here. Learn more by exploring their website at OnwardChristian.org and take their survey here.

At Onward, parents and teachers will partner together in providing excellent education for students. It is a perfect blend between home education and formal education.

Onward will neither act as a co-op nor a private school. This means that parents may drop their children off and that teachers will be hired, qualified instructors; yet classes only run two days per week.

Onward will seek to centralize the many different directions that home educators are pulled in by trying to provide well-rounded opportunities for a broad range of ages. This will hopefully include not only strong academic support but athletics, physical education, electives, and community events as well.

Onward will come alongside parents in pointing students to Christ as we teach all subjects through a Biblical worldview.

Please take the Onward Christian School Survey… This survey will help us to gauge interest and gather more information about what type of educational support Lynchburg area families are looking for. This is your opportunity to weigh in on your educational needs!

Classes are for girls 7-10 years-old and class size is limited due to nature of course. Tentative class schedule is every other Friday, August 26, 2016 through May 12, 2017. Cost is $5 per class. Email Alyson Wagner here for further information and registration.

Alyson Wagner on Course Info & Background

When my now 20yo daughter first opened Samantha as a Christmas gift when she was 5, we have no idea the impact American Girls would have on our lives. Yes, she loved to play with her girls by the hour, read all the books multiple times and she even saved up to purchase Kirsten at 7 and Felicity at 9. And we gifted her with many dresses and accessories throughout the years. “Her girls”, as we came to call them, defined a treasured season of her childhood for all of us.

Yet, only as I started teaching her American History in 3rd grade using Sonlight’s living books did I catch a glimpse of what role the AGirls had laid in her academically. As we began to study Colonial Williamsburg, and we were reading about George Washington and Thomas Jefferson she looked up at me and smiled, “Mom, they lived when Felicity did! He is Felicity’s President!” I smiled too. From then on history was FUN.

As we moved through the timeline and covered Kaya, Felicity, Josefina and Kirsten that first year, it was evident over and over how much of a historical scope and sequence was already rooted in her mind from reading the AG stories. She had a timeline of mental ‘hooks’ on which to hang the real facts of history right next to the details in the stories about each girl. We went on in 4th grade to study Addy, Samantha, Kit and Molly; all those ‘hooks’ from 1750-1950 formed the matrix of her American history knowledge well past those early years of elementary school.

Now, I am excited to share with you and your girls the same curriculum I started with my girl 13 yrs ago. These books are now out of print, yet contain wonderful unit studies from Pleasant Company before Mattel bought American Girl around 1998. If you are interested please contact me so I can reserve your girl a spot, send you more information about dates, times and cost and answer any questions you may have. This class will involve: Reading & writing, history personalities, dated timelines & geographical maps, arts & crafts, cooking & sewing, and expose the girls to basic research and presentation skills (show & tell). The only significant requirement to enjoy the benefits of the classes is that your daughter be a solid reader and willing to try new things.

I look forward to hearing from you and supporting you as you teach your precious little girls!

GREAT BOOKS & LEADERSHIP/RHETORIC COURSES

In addition to the American Girl History/Literature Unit Study classes listed above, Alyson Wagner, local home educator, will also be offering the following courses on for the 2016-17 academic year on bi-weekly Fridays at Heritage Baptist Church for grades 7-12. Email Alyson Wagner here for further information and registration.
