Classical Education Group

We would like to welcome you to Classical-LDS-hs, the world’s first online forum for the discussion, discovery, and implementation of LDS educational principles, designed for LDS parents who are homeschooling their children using the classical model.

You are probably (a) already using this method or (b) interested in learning more about it. Either way, we’re glad you’re here. This forum is focused on the classical curriculum, in whatever form it may take in each family, and how to apply it within the LDS home, including teachings of the restored gospel and latter-day prophets.

Classical-LDS-hs is a place where ideas can be shared and various educational endeavors can be discussed openly. It is our hope to promote cooperation and excellence in LDS educational efforts. The forum has already seen great success in accomplishing these goals. Many valuable relationships have been built between individuals, true principles have been embraced, and those involved have shared educational principles destined to change our society in a powerful way.

Come join us! Share your ideas, and what has worked for you. Beginners welcome. We look forward to many happy memories together along the homeschooling trail. Tell a friend about Classical-LDS-hs. Then come and share your day with us. Stay tuned and stay in touch. For an introduction to Classical education, click here.

SaintsandScholars Group

SaintsandScholars is an online support group for LDS homeschoolers across the nation, no matter what method of homeschooling you prefer, established to encourage those who are motivated to home school, yet need the confidence to begin, and to refresh and hearten home schooling veterans. SaintsandScholars is for all parents who homeschool their children, or who are considering homeschooling as a lifestyle. We welcome you! Here you will find veteran homeschoolers and beginners, all learning together.

This list will take a serious look at the ways in which homeschooling, religious training, and family life shape our lives and the lives of our children. All are invited to share ideas, new web site discoveries, success and struggle stories, character education, favorite curriculum sources, influential books, experiences with distance learning, lessons you as a parent have learned, and the general daily life of homeschooling.

The Lord will intervene in our circumstances to solve the problems we cannot solve ourselves. When we ask for His help, then we have access to all the resources of heaven. It is not a teaching certificate, college degree, great patience, or expert communication skills that will carry us through to the end in our home schooling experience, but the help of the Lord.

This list is dedicated to parents teaching parents in the greatest and most eternal pursuit of all: raising our children to develop their hearts, minds, and talents in righteousness and faith.

National LDS Homeschool Association

Welcome to LDS-NHA, a support group for LDS homeschoolers across the nation, no matter what method of homeschooling you prefer, established to encourage those who are considering home schooling, yet need the confidence to begin, and to refresh and hearten weary home schooling veterans.

Ask yourself: are you sufficiently motivated to homeschool, something that will be difficult and unconventional? Perhaps the majority of parents who decide not to home school do so from a lack of confidence, a feeling of inadequacy or self-doubt.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not upon your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6) Remember, it is not a teaching certificate, college degree, great patience, or expert communication skills that will carry us through to the end in our home schooling experience.

The Lord will intervene in our circumstances to solve the problems we cannot solve ourselves. “For when I am weak, then I am strong” (I Corinthians 12:10). When we ask for His help, then we have access to all of the resources of heaven. “I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them” (Ether 12:27). This is true no matter how much self-confidence we have.

Join us for support! Tell a friend about LDS-NHA! Then come and spend your day with us.

School of Abraham Newsletter

We are dedicated to the greatest and most eternal pursuit of all: raising our children, a covenant generation, to develop their minds and talents in righteousness and faith.

The School of Abraham exists to encourage individual scholarship through an innovative study program which fosters spiritual and moral development in an environment of academic rigor, and also to help parents more effectively teach their children the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The School of Abraham is designed to be flexible, in order to meet the varied needs of the homeschooling family. Each family chooses their preferred curriculum resources and methods of academic homeschooling. We have developed an innovative study program which recognizes progression by age, rather than by grade, based on spiritual and moral development. Your children can move ahead quickly or spend extra time, as desired. Individual goal setting is emphasized and recognized.

At the School of Abraham, we take as integral to our mission statement the word of the Lord as recorded in the book of Isaiah: “… And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children”. (Isaiah 54:13)

Our motto is “Accountability, Exactness, and Honor.”

The School of Abraham supports the family by providing unique educational resources for religious education, centered upon the School of Abraham Educational Model, including our Guided Reading Program for Great Books and other world classics, recommended resources for history, biography and other curricula, studies of the teachings of the prophets, in-depth study of the scriptures and commentaries, gospel art and music resources, and programs which help strengthen family life and provide character education.

The School of Abraham has been founded that our children may be instructed more perfectly in all things that pertain unto the Kingdom of God. We teach theory, principle, doctrine, and the law of the gospel, that our children may be prepared in all things when the Lord shall send them again to magnify the calling whereunto he has called them, and the mission with which he has commissioned them. (adapted from D&C 88:78, 80)
