Berean Academy-online classical school
From the Website:

Berean Academy is an online, Christian, classical school. All online classes are taught live and classes are kept small to encourage student participation.

Berean Academy is named after the church at Berea in Acts 17:10-15, of which Luke writes, “Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. As a result, many of them believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men.” It is my desire that my students would demonstrate tenacity in their faith, eagerness in learning, and open mindedness in their education, always examining everything by the light of Scripture.
