Q:

Your name says "Christian", what does that mean for me?

A:

You do not have to be a Christian to join us, but the Christian faith and the Bible influence all that we do as a community. We have a morning devotional and prayer time on our Full Days. By becoming a member in WSCEC, you agree to abide by our statement of faith and not teach or say anything contrary to it. We are a non-denominational group and every family is welcome.

Q:

What makes your community unique?

A:

Our goal is to support and encourage homeschooling moms (and dads!). Along with our engaging classes, we offer workshops, activities, field trips and opportunities to enrich the homeschool experience for the whole family. Our community works together as member teachers to provide classes for infants, preschool and K to 12th grade. We strive to keep costs low for our families. Fellowship time with this amazing group is always fun!
