Homeschool 2017

We are naming our homeschool New Hope Academy!!!
So excited for the fall and getting our year started! 

New Hope Academy ~ A Christian based homeschool where every child is encouraged to shine.  Our goal is to help our children learn, and grow, by guiding their hearts and character so they shine in the light of God.
Matthew 5:16 Shine your light on the world. 
Home of the Eagles

But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. ~ Isaiah 40:31

Family Verse
Matthew 22:37-39 Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.”
