Samual Jon Kalies
It is with great honor and thanksgiving that we announce the graduation of our son, Samual Jon Kalies. It has been a joy and privilege to homeschool Sam from kindergarten through high school. Through his years of homeschooling he has been involved in gym class, pottery, teen group, art fairs, the JV and Varsity basketball teams and constantly pursuing his gift and love for art. Sam has also been a big part of his church youth group by participating in and teaching small groups, leading VBS, playing in the worship band, and going on many missions’ trips. He has had many awesome mentors and friends along the way. We have been so blessed to watch Sam grow into the Godly man that he is today. Sam will be going to St. Norbert College in the fall to major in Graphic Design. We are sad to see him leave home, but are excited for him to begin this new journey and see the plans that God has made for him. We are so proud of you and love you Sam! Mom & Dad (Chris and Brenda Kalies) “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith” – Hebrews 12: 1-2

Welcome to Green Bay Area Christian Homeschoolers!

GBACH exists to provide Christ-centered support and encouragement and to offer academic, social, and service opportunities to private homeschools in Green Bay and surrounding areas. 

GBACH maintains a clear delineation between virtual school, charter schools, and private homeschools and accepts only private homeschools for membership.  A private homeschool is a family that has registered with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) using Form PI-1206. Please note that the State of Wisconsin defines virtual and charter schools as public schools, and all children enrolled in them are considered public school students even though they receive instruction at home. Students enrolled in any virtual charter school are not included on PI-1206 forms and are not considered to be homeschooled according to Wisconsin law. Therefore, they are not eligible for GBACH membership, nor can they participate in GBACH only events and activities unless granted explicit permission by the coordinator or board. 

According to the current board’s interpretation of the GBACH bylaws, GBACH members are persons registered with GBACH and include only: 1) the parents of homeschooled child(ren); 2) the child(ren) for whom a PI-1206 is filed; and 3) parents and any children younger than six years of age who are not enrolled in any public school or virtual charter school, and who intend to home school in the future.

Please note that this delineation is in no way meant to be a “judgment” on families who utilize brick-and-mortar or virtual charter public schools for some of their children. In fact, GBACH respects the right of the parents in each family unit to choose whatever they deem to be an appropriate educational program for each child. Rather, GBACH’s policy is in keeping with the advice of the Wisconsin Parents Association (WPA) and the Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), both of whom strongly recommend that homeschool associations insure that public/taxpayer funds are not used within private homeschool groups.  The policy is simply meant to protect private homeschoolers from possible government intrusion that may occur when taxpayer funds are used for private homeschool activities.
