One or two students and one teacher share a 210 square foot (15x14) classroom with a adjacent 480 square foot (16x30) project room. Many school days we may use a 5,800 square foot hall and a 400 square foot kitchen. Our WiFi covers our classroom, the adjacent project room,  the kitchen, Disseler Hall and the surrounding grounds.  

Across the hall from our small classroom door is the church kitchen where we have filled the the kitchen and Disseler Hall with the aromas from homemade salsa, homemade bread, chili and homemade pizza. We have fed a large womens’ group homemade pizzas and chilli and provided bread for several church receptions. We have held four graduations (2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016) with 50 people in attendance and served food after each graduation ceremony.

Our online coursework and flexible schedule allows students to explore:

  • Public service takes students out of their world and inspires them to become the helping hands and the encouraging hearts that connect us all.
  • Real jobs in the workplace allow students to "apprentice" themselves to working adults and learn to support themselves in the "Marketplace."
  • Our flexible school day allows parents and students to travel and to meet other obligations.  Your student can complete school work anywhere with WiFi.

Tuition is $3,000 a year ($300 a month for ten months, August through May).  Payment plans are available.
