    Beth Pratt, Director 2018-present
    Our homeschooling journey began in 1996 before my oldest was even born. A close family friend took my husband to a homeschooling convention. When he returned home he felt that we really needed to look into that option and I was at total peace with the decision. I truly feel that we were called to homeschool and have held tightly to that though the hardest days.
    When my oldest was four I bought my first curriculum in a box. Seeing the beautiful well dressed little girl curled up on her mother’s lap learning to read, I thought this is the one. My picture looked a little different. Though the years we have used nearly every curriculum known to man I believe. And I can only call our method eclectic at best, pure chaos at worst.
    My husband and I have seven beautiful totally homeschooled children. Three have graduated with Eagles and are now enrolled in college. Josiah age 21 is a junior at Berry College in Rome Georgia majoring in Creative Technologies with a double minor in Computer Science and Business. Jacob, 19, attends Spring Arbor University in Spring Arbor, Michigan with a Worship Arts Leadership major. Emma 18 leaves for Toccoa Falls College in the fall after completing 2 years of dual enrollment there. Rose is 13 and loves music and drawing. Dani is 10 and loves science and friends. And Bekah and Ben are 6 and 4. We have been involved with Eagles since 2011 when we were introduced to a summer science workshop that summer.
