Dear friends, normally by now we would be sending out an email giving you instuctions on the Stanford test which we administer in May. Well, since nothing is normal at this point and we need about a months lead time to get it done, we have decided to postpone the test until the first week of June…..tentatively. As soon as we confirm whether or not that will happen, I will post here. Meanwhile if you want to go ahead and test on your own, here is the link:

Thanks for understanding……….


From HSLDA….

And remember “Be ye kind” if you have the opportunity to share!


Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Homeschoolers have a unique opportunity to help families, educators and students as schools close around the country.

This is an unprecedented moment in our country’s history. We can help our fellow moms and dads face this challenge by sharing our expertise and experience with learning at home.

HSLDA is joining our friends at yes. every kid. to launch a new Facebook group. #LearnEverywhere is a community for families, parents, educators and students who are having to change their education routines due to the coronavirus.

Join the group, share how you teach your kids at home and post a link to your favorite learning resources.

As we know, education isn’t a place, it’s an experience that can happen anywhere.Rather than be defined by this crisis, we can create a lasting community to help everyone learn everywhere!


Won’t you be my neighbor?

Last fellowship of the year-April 11th

Dear CBCCA Parents, thank you to all who came to the fellowship last night. The CBCCA staff puts a lot of time and effort in to bringing content that we feel will encourage you in your homeschool journey.  Not to mention the preparation of those who offer that encouragement.

This time of year I get phone calls as to how many meetings you have attended. About one third of you have attended the required 3 meetings. About one third have attended 2 meetings and the remaining one third have only attended one, or none.

I just want to remind you that when you filled out the application, you committed to attending the required 3 meetings; I don’t see this as a commitment to me or CBCCA but to our heavenly Father. We want to be gracious and flexible, but failure to attend these required meetings could put your next application to CBCCA in jeopardy.

Having said that I look forward to a record turn out at our last Fellowship of the year on April 11th!

Blessings, Claudia

We will be offering parents two choices on Tuesday evening!

Reading Good Books With Our Kids

Led by Zoe Howard, she says: My goal is to encourage parents to embrace good books as a way of teaching discernment, to broaden our kids’ horizons, and to spark a love of learning in them. I’ll share some ways to find great books and to help our kids choose well. We’ll explore the benefits of reading a wide variety of genres with our kids.

Questions we’ll discuss:

-Does it really matter what books my kids are reading, as long as they are reading a lot? My kid loves to read, but I don’t know where to find good books. How can I help my kids to choose wisely? Should I pre-read everything before I give it to my kids? My kid hates reading, what can I do? How can I use the public library more? My kid only wants to read science fact books, how can I get him to read stories/literature? I don’t enjoy reading aloud and my kids don’t want to listen anyway, what to do? What about books that have bad language/sinful choices/etc? I need some book recommendations!

2. Dual Enrollment with Point University

JANICE TINSLEY​-ENROLLMENT SERVICES COORDINATOR, SAVANNAH  “Educating students for Christ‑centered service and leadership throughout the world.”  She is asking parents to “please consider as our program is pivotal for Christian students being in a Christian college class room experience, as opposed to a secular environment locally.” This should be of great interest to any parents of a high school student!

She will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Consider inviting other parents of teens who may not be homeschooled with CBCCA, they are encouraged to attend.

Cat needs a home!

See below a message from my neighbor. They are looking for a good home for their cat. We have a female cat, not breed specific, that we are hoping to give to a loving home. Harle was owned by my mother Debby Thomas, who recently passed away. Harle is an indoor cat, we think about four years old, spayed, up-to-date on all her vet visits (Mark Guilloid) and shots, and litter box trained. Her best friends, while my mother was alive, were both my mother and her German Shepherd Dog. Harle has also been trained not to bother a cockatiel (who lives in a cage.). If you would like to add this delightful cat to your home, we would love to talk with you. Time is of the essence, so please let us know as soon as possible if you might be interested. (Neither Lauren nor I live in South Carolina and we will be returning to our homes on or about March 9 or 10).
