Principle Approach Homeschool

Drawing on years of experience teaching Principle Approach centered academics in Christian and homeschool settings, Miss Kathy has developed a series of training workshops to equip the novice and veteran homeschool parent with the tools they need to develop a vision for their children’s home education from a biblical worldview. Understanding the times within the context of a philosophy of education, parents will discover the power of teaching and learning all subjects from an historical timeline, primary sources, and the power of story–His Story. Prepare your children to confidently walk in the fullness of their calling with the strength of a bibilical worldview and critical thinking and reasoning skills. Become the “living textbook” of all subjects through Principle Approach education–in the pattern of the Founding Father’s era of American History. Writing, literature, history, and the arts play an interactive part in this customized approach to developing academic disciplines and communication skills. Learn how to choose curriculum wisely and sparingly–and how to write your own!
