Vista Hills Homeshool Ministry

Deb@vhhomeschool.com

 I, CC  

We encourage and meet with new homeschoolers to kind of give them a “feel” for what homeschooling is and show them some of the different kinds of curriculum and “schools of thought” for teaching.  Our new homeschoolers classes are about four hours long and we hope they will set you on a firm foundation to begin your homeschooling journey.  The most important thing we believe we can do for homeschoolers is to change what they believe school should look like and accomplish.  Homeschooling IS NOT and SHOULD NOT BE public school at home.
We have a homeschool library which has curriculum, posters and learning games which were donated by other homeschoolers for moms to check out for a year and bring back when they are done. If you would rather keep a book, then we allow that as well, for a donation to the ministry. ​ We don’t tell you how much. Some can afford more and some less – ​ ​The amount is between you and God — we trust you to be faithful.
When God provides us with a teacher, we set up classes. All of our classes are free — God was very clear that we are not allowed to charge for them and anyone is welcome.  We believe that if God provides the gift of education it should be open to everyone. If you want to teach a class, we would do our best to find you a classroom, but you would have to donate your services as a gift to Christ  or we can’t use you.
