|A church school founded by the Huntsville Area Friends Meeting|
In the fall of 1986, three home schooling mothers felt the need to start a new church-sponsored school for families who did not fit the requirements of the existing umbrella church schools. They put together a proposal for the establishment of a school and took it to the Huntsville Area Friends Meeting. The response from the Quakers was positive and, after deliberation, a "minute" was written and accepted at a monthly meeting for business. This "minute" established a school committee to run the school and laid out guidelines for the structure of the school. The school committee consists of a Friends representative, the school counselors, and representative parents who are chosen by the rest of the committee. Our current church sponsors are the Elkton Friends Meeting for Worship, the Temple B'Nai Sholom, and Central Church of Christ.
Our school counselors are assigned to families to provide positive support and encouragement. They are willing and eager listeners, who can offer the family new ideas or approaches, give suggestions when needed, and help in any way they can. When you meet with your counselor, he/she will check your attendance records and your lesson plans or journal, as well as offering any other help you wish.
We provide curriculum advice, yearly achievement tests, record keeping/transcripts, field trips, monthly/other activites, a library with a number of resource materials, dual enrollment for high school students and a high school diploma program. Our enrollment of students is between 90-100 students.
