What are the requirements for your guides (teachers)?
We currently hire Guides that have either a teaching credential or a degree in their subject of speciality plus teaching experience. Assistants may be students working toward their credential, parents with homeschooling experience, etc. All staff and volunteers that work with children are background checked, fingerprinted, and referenced.
What does parent partnership look like?
You are the primary educator of your child, selecting core subject curriculums, pacing, evaluating progress, and submitting grades. Behold is here to partner with you to enhance, challenge, and encourage your homeschooling journey through academic enrichment and character and leadership opportunities.
Behold is a “best fit” for families that homeschool as a lifestyle and take full ownership of their child(ren)s educational progress. It is also best for students that show initiative, self motivation, ability to participate in a classroom setting, interest in learning new things, and a desire to learn through discussion and experiences/projects.
We are a community model homeschool enrichment center, meaning we desire to utilize the skills, gifts, and passions of each, to contribute to the thriving of the whole!
Parents are required to contribute approx 3 hours every other month, and are welcome to give more time if they desire. This could be: on campus hours as a floater/lunch/project helper, guiding an elective, or holding a position on our BPO (Behold Parent Organization) such as a(n): Explore Group Coordinator, Room Parent, Social Media Coordinator, Chapel Coordinator, Hospitality Leader, etc.
(All parents will be assigned on campus hours, unless they already contribute in another position.)
We are not an umbrella school and you are free to record with the state however you wish, but we have 1 recommended Umbrella School for middle schoolers, so that they can potentially play on sports teams together.
Do you have a drop off line?
Yes! You can stay in you pj’s and sip your coffee. :)
Are there other programs/resources you plan to include?
The guides will decide what to add in to enhance/go further on certain subjects, but some of our favorite options include: Bible Project, Jesus Storybook Bible, Prager U videos, Mike Huckabee’s history videos, Tuttle Twins books, Hillsdale Academy resources, and more.
We have a “community commitment” that every family signs, agreeing that you are responsible for your child/family’s health, and if your child is ill/has symptoms of a contagious illness, that you will keep them home and inform us in a timely manner. We will adhere to standard protocols like frequent hand washing, cleaning high touch surfaces often, etc.
Why is the school named BEHOLD?
Behold- v: To fix the eyes upon; to see with attention; to observe something with great care; to direct or fix the mind on.
In the bible, when this word comes at the beginning of a sentence, it is an exclamation, like a flashing red light to slow down and pay close attention, because something important, worth considering/pondering, and being in awe of is about to follow.
This is the posture we desire kids to approach learning with… to explore God’s creation with attention and wonder; to pause, ponder, and respect new subjects of study; and to observe and experience what life in a biblical mentorship community is like.
