Open House

May 2nd at 10:30 AM

You are warmly invited to an open house for Christian Family Schools of Poway. Please invite your friends and family who are interested in what it means to be part of our community. We will give an overview of what makes our support group unique, briefly explain how our class day works, as well as answer questions.

You are welcome to bring your children. However, we do not have childcare, so you may want to bring something to occupy them. Children are at play on the church grounds and supervised by volunteer parents if you would like to allow your children to play outside with other co-op children. We look forward to meeting you. 

Christian: Every form of education teaches a world view.  Whether consciously or unconsciously, when we choose a school, when we choose a, curriculum, when we choose an environment, we are choosing what world view will be imparted to our children. 

Family: A strong family bond does not just happen.  Our society promotes generational estrangement.  As homeschoolers we are able to make spending time as a family unit the norm.  

Schools: When we school at home, we are able to customize the educational process. We are able to give our children the time, attention, and curriculum suited to their unique needs. Academic excellence is to be strived for, but character is primary.  

Please sign up here to let us know you are coming. If you have any questions, please email our co-op coordinator Heather at

Used Curriculum Sale

Join us for our Annual Used Curriculum Sale!

Come early as people begin selling as soon as they set up.

Everyone is welcome to sell books/curriculum. Please bring your own table(s) and pop-ups, and price your items ahead of time. Be sure to bring small bills for change or more conveniently install paypal on your smartphone for instant payment. Come early for the best spots. We will be asking for a $5 suggested donation to Family Protection Ministries from each seller. This will be collected during the event.

We encourage student entrepeneurs to set up a booth and sell as well. We love our budding business people!

We'll have a raffle for a CFS Poway membership, and gift cards to enjoy during the summer.

Do you have curriculum donations?

We would love to take them! We will be selling some of the donations to benefit FPM and also keeping some of them for our library to bless other families. 

Can't wait to see you there!
