We are a resource center that is here to help people who want to homeschool and need or want a little assistance. We have a Christian environment and consider parents to be the primary educators and decision-makers. Grade levels given are flexible and are listed to help parents make decisions.
We do not intend to become a university model school, and expect that parents remain the primary teachers of their children. We are run by common sense, not common core. We are not interested in accreditation and prefer to preserve our freedoms. We ran a large program for nine years in the Acworth/Kennesaw area of Cobb County ,GA, and re-opened three years ago in a church in the Cherokee County area. Effective fall, 2019, we will be moving to our new quarters at the Towne View Baptist Church on Shiloh Road. We're back in Kennesaw!
Teachers are selected on the basis of their Christian character, experience with homeschooling, passion for teaching, and expertise in an area of the curriculum. They are required to pass a background check and sign a statement of faith.
Participants will be asked to sign a statement of faith. In some instances, people will be allowed to participate in the programs if they are not prepared to sign the statement of faith, but in all cases, the behavior, dress, and deportment of the children and families will be expected to fit into the Christian environment that they are entering by choice. Nevertheless, we believe children are unique individuals, and do not expect everyone to conform rigidly to a specific “look” or all have the same abilities or needs. We try very hard to individualize all instruction and help create an atmosphere where your children are valued and feel loved and worthwhile.
For more information on our organization, explore our website, www.archersforthelord.org., or join our facebook group, relaxedhomeschoolers-ARCHERS. We also have a facebook page for the center, www.facebook.com/relaxedhomeschool.
All new students will need to meet briefly with one of the ARCHERs board of directors or teachers for an orientation sometime before September.
(Note: Last day of classes at Cherokee Resource Center is May 16, 2019.)
