EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

We believe that a child's education and the direction of his mental, emotional, social, spiritual and physical growth is properly the responsibility of his parents, and not the prerogative of the state; that the state's compelling interest is that children be educated, not that the method or location of instruction be narrowly defined; that home education is a highly effective methodology offering pri­vate tutoring, indi­vidualized curriculum, self- pacing, emphasis on cooperation rather than competition, en­hancement of self-esteem and access to parental nurturance and guidance; that home education permits so­cial interaction with people of all ages throughout the community and eliminates excessive peer dependence; that home schooling strengthens the basic link of society--the family unit.
