SHIREMANSTOWN HOMESCHOOL GROUP is a community outreach ministry of Shiremanstown First Church of God. Our goal is to aid you by offering weekly core and elective classes for students in grades 5 - 12. Our group consists of dedicated, independent teachers, parents, and professionals who offer quality classes to local homeschool students.
We are not a traditional, parent-taught co-op, and we do not require signing a statement of faith, nor are we a subsidized, comprehensive program in which to enroll. We provide a different kind of homeschool experience.
Put simply, we are a coordinated group of independent tutors. Class fees are paid directly to the instructors each semester. Students can take just one class or several, as needed. In addition, there is a quiet study room available if students have a break between classes. We gladly accept help, but parents are not required to volunteer.
We typically offer a full complement of academic classes for all grades, 5-12, each semester, but we cannot guarantee that all classes required by PA Homeschool Law will be offered in any given year. As always, parents/homeschool supervisors are responsible for ensuring their home education program complies with PA 13-1327.1. Additionally, although SHG tutors may recommend final grades based on quality of work done for class, parents/homeschool supervisors remain the final authority when issuing student grades and determining credit earned.
Thank you for allowing us to be part of your homeschool world. We welcome your feedback and look forward to seeing you at Shiremanstown Homeschool Group!
