We are a group of home school families who hope to support and encourage those who desire to privately home educate their children. We meet the second Friday of the month (September - June, excluding December) at Kit Carson Park from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. There is plenty of room for the kids to run around and play, but sometimes it’s fun to bring a jump rope, balls, or bubbles. Be aware that the water at the park is contaminated, so please warn your children not to play near the water. Don’t forget to bring your checkbook and calendar. Payment is always due when signing up for activities.
As traditional Christian families, we have gathered together to support and encourage, from a Biblical standpoint, Christian private home educating households. We operate under the direction of our leadership team and are affiliated with both Christian Family Schools of San Diego and the Christian Home Educators Association of California and have adopted their policies. We comply with their Statement of Faith, Educational Philosophy, Leadership Policy, Mission Statement and Support Network Guidelines. As an affiliated support group we will act in accordance with their recommendations as stated in their Support Group Guidelines. In as much as we are a Christian private home education group we do specifically hold to the Christian Family Schools Leadership Policy for our leadership team which states, “Leaders may not have their children registered with any public institution as the primary means of satisfying compulsory education requirements.”
