Sure Foundation Homeschool Tutorial (SFHT) Opening for the 2017-2018 School Year

We are a Christian homeschool cooperative and a ministry of Kirkridge Presbyterian Church, ARP. We believe education is a parent's God-given responsibility and want to encourage and help parents with this task. We want to strengthen homeschool families and share our gifting with each other. We also look to provide a place for teachers to encourage students and provide needed quality academics.

As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. ~ I Peter 4:10
Classes will be held once a week for middle school and high school students, meeting on Thursdays. Classes will run from September to May. Participants pick and choose courses, taking as many as they like. Each course will have its own grading policy that will be addressed by the teacher. There is a $40 non-refundable registration fee due with registration forms.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. ~Proverbs 1:7
