  • Discipleship

    Raising our children and educating them could be described as, "a long obedience in the same direction." The longer we homeschool, the more we believe that to be obedient, to stay on the "narrow pathway" that Jesus described, we need the Lord desperately, and we also need each other.

  • Encouragement
    Encouragement

    Encourage means, "to inspire with hope, courage, or confidence; hearten."

     

    "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up." I Thessalonians 5:11


About Pathway

Why the name Pathway?

Eugene Peterson (author of The Message) said that "discipleship" is a long obedience in the same direction. We think that raising our children and educating them could be described in the same way, "a long obedience in the same direction." The longer we homeschool, the more we believe that to be obedient, to stay on the "narrow pathway" that Jesus described, we need the Lord desperately, and we also need each other. In addition to receiving community support, we can also lovingly guide each other's children towards the pathway that the Lord has for them.

Who are we?

It is our goal to aid parents in their homeschooling by providing support, accountability, fellowship, and encouragement.

Our group is a made up of Christian families. It is our goal to enhance our children's educational and social experience by providing learning opportunities while helping our children to adopt a Biblical worldview. We accomplish this goal through weekly co-op meetings for elementary, middle school, and high school students, as well as weekly paid classes for high schoolers.

How do we work?

PCC is made up of three parts - a cooperative that includes K-8th grades, a cooperative for high school students, and paid classes for high school students.

The Co-op (K-8th grade)

"Many hands make light work!"

In our middle school and elementary co-op, each mom is asked to teach in ONE class and assist in TWO. This ensures that the students have a wonderful variety in their teachers, the labor is distributed nicely, and the load is not too big of a burden for any mom. If you are new to homeschooling or don't feel comfortable teaching, please don't be overwhelmed by this requirement. We will be happy to help in any way we can. Assistants serve as built-in substitute teachers when the teacher has to be absent.

The Co-op (High School)

In our high school co-op, a parent from each family will be required to volunteer their time on co-op day. This will ensure an even distribution of the total workload. The assignments will be distributed before classes begin in August. 

The High School Paid Classes

For those not wishing to join the High School co-op, individual classes will still be offered with a fee determined by the teacher. A $75 non-refundable deposit mailed directly to the paid teacher will be required to hold your student's spot in the class. The balance of the entire class fee will be due to the teacher on or before the first day of class. The goal is to bring high school students together in a classroom atmosphere that meets the social and academic needs of the students. 

When and where do we meet?

We will be meeting weekly on Fridays in Huntersville, NC for the upcoming 2018-19 school year. Please contact us for more information.
