A Kairos moment to invest in the spiritual development of our children.

We are living at an unprecedented time in history, one of great turmoil and even greater God-opportunities.  Whether by choice or by necessity, many families are educating their children at home.

If you are longing to equip your children for a life of walking with God and need the resources to do so, we invite you to join us as we facilitate encounters with God and build a kingdom identity rooted in His word.


Our teachers will be walking with your family throughout the school year leading the weekly cohort meetings and providing support as you go through the interactive online curriculum.

We offer two curriculum options. The first spans over four days a week and dives into biblical engagement and spiritual practices for connecting with God and each other. For busier families we offer a second option that streamlines the curriculum into a once-per-week family encounter time.

Living in God’s Story

Two days a week you will be given a detailed curriculum devoted to you and your children interacting with the Kingdom story of God’s people through creation, fall, redemption, and restoration.

Creative, hands-on activities will bring the biblical narrative to life. Students will be invited to find their place in God’s story: in their own family, in the Bible, and in the story of the church both past and present.

Friendship With God

Two days a week you will be given a detailed curriculum that facilitates an interactive encounter with God using creative spiritual practices including: quiet, prayer, Scripture engagement, worship/adoration, gratitude, generosity, supernatural ministry, cultural engagement, and justice. Menus with different options for how to engage with these practices will allow for choice, creativity, and age differences.

Intergenerational Community

Once a week, we will meet in small groups that we call cohorts. This will be a time for building community as a cohort and encountering God together.


A kingdom-centered education can set the foundation for a life lived with purpose.
We work to keep the program cost as low as possible because we believe no one should be excluded due to financial circumstances.
