Dear SCCS parents,
We welcome April tomorrow, and in some odd way, I feel like the month has shown up surprisingly soon! Incredulously, we are almost to the end of the school year. I am excited about the approach of summer, but encourage you all and remind myself to finish well.
​Dear SCCS families,
Anyone else looking forward to some warm weather? While I appreciate the change of seasons and the variety of temperatures, I'm growing weary of the lack of outside time for our children, and myself too! You may feel the same with cooped up kiddos, and I just want to encourage you to hold on, hopefully for just a little longer!

Enrollment for next school year is now open to the public. If you have questions regarding our school or the application process, please first read the FAQs since most issues are addressed there.

Once you have read about SCCS, please fully complete the application process. Don't forget to follow each step till you reach the page with a button that says "Submit application."

Tuition of $125 may be paid by check to SCCS for new families. You may also pay online via Stripe here on the website.


Deadline is May 31. We look forward to serving you this new year!


Re-enrollment at SCCS takes place from February 1 - May 31.

Dear SCCS parents,
Dear SCCS parents,
Such a lovely fall day like this one gives me more reasons to be thankful for the opportunity to homeschool! We have found school on the deck to be an effective motivator on several days, and are thankful for the glorious color in our woods, and brisk breezes that mean autumn is in full swing. Find some time to get outdoors and learn, hiking, exploring nature in your yard, or visiting a park, if you can. We even have a special park day to end this current week, so plan on joining us then if you are not able to get outside much before then.

Dear SCCS parents,

Happy fall to everyone!  This is our family's favorite month of the year. Part of that is the cooler temperatures, football, and lovely colored leaves, and part of it is because we celebrate my husband's birthday and mine too, in October. I hope that your family is enjoying the pretty weather and that you have reasons to celebrate also!


Two days for you to choose from, with tons of slots every 5 minutes. We are excited to have this opportunity with a wonderful photographer, so our families can have professional quality memories of this school year!

Dear SCCS families,

After the really heavy rain Monday, this gorgeous week has ended up being a busy one for our family as we are trying to be disciplined with school but can hardly resist going outdoors as much as possible. I am still so thankful that I have the freedom to do school outdoors when we want, or to take a break for a walk in the middle of class time, since it makes us all more productive to get out in the fresh air for a little while.


Below are the field trips, support group meetings, and other important dates on our school calendar for this year.
