One Room Schoolhouse in the Piney Woods

vintage education in a one-room setting

Home: Welcome


Enroll your child in one class or many!

During our Fall and Spring semester we offer classes twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Every class is 50 minutes long with a 10 minute recess break at the end. Most are drop-off classes for the students but we do offer a few

'Mommy-and-Me' classes for parents who would like to stay on site and those classes are also offered to students with special needs who benefit from having their care giver on site. 
Students can take just one class or they can mix and match many classes. During our built-in recess breaks between the classes the kids can play out in nature and enjoy socializing with class mates. They are welcome to pack a lunch and picnic with their friends.
Class size is limited and we often have a running waitlist but we do all we can to accommodate as many families as possible.

We also offer weekend workshops, special programs for church groups, photography opportunities, summer classes, and a farm stay experience for families who would like to experience life on a working farm in our AirBnB guest house.

Christian Educator

homesteader, patriot and homeschool mom of 7

After 20 years of teaching experience, including working in classrooms, working with special needs children, teaching physical education classes, hosting field trips for large homeschool groups, leading bible studies and teaching mommy-and-me classes all while homeschooling our 7 children, we had a desire to open a one room school house so that other children could benefit from a multi age small classroom setting that our own children have been so blessed to experience. 
Our children have a span of 15 years in their ages and we have experienced first hand the benefits of teaching kids in a setting where the younger children can benefit from the older one’s drive to learn and good classroom behavior being modeled and the older can benefit from rising to the call to be a role model and encouragement to the little eyes who look up to them. 
With a desire to be a resource to other homeschool and public school families we will be offering clinics, training and guidance to parents as well as children so that the whole family can benefit from a tried and true educational approach.

Small Scale Classroom Setting in a Christian Environment 

The small class room sizes allow every student to get to know the other which forges friendships and builds community between families at a time in the world where face to face connections are a treasure. 
The Christian environment means that each child is valued as an individual created by God for his good purposes and that children will be taught to treat one another how they want to be treated inside and outside of class. Character will be addressed daily, not just because it’s good for the student to learn kindness, goodness, patience’s and other godly characteristics but because it honors God and helps them to understand the attitudes of their hearts when behaviors are discussed and reflected on throughout the day as we challenge ourselves inside and outside the classroom. Often time the public school setting doesn’t constitute taking this approach because class sizes are large and teachers don’t feel free to address the attitudes of the heart but we take a whole person approach to education and believe children thrive  in the area of education if they are also growing in their knowledge and understanding of Jesus Christ and the godly life he calls us and enables us to lead through his Spirit’s work in those who know him and walk in his ways. That is my first and greatest passion as a teacher and a Christian.
