HEART Academy offers core and enrichment courses for Lower Academy (for grades 3-6 every other Friday) and Upper Academy (grades 7-12 meeting every Friday).  This service to families is open to all homeschoolers who are advocated by Home School Legal Defense Association (www.hslda.org).  These classes cater to all learning styles of students and provide extra challenges for accelerated students through honor courses.  Email us back if you want to attend the meeting.  We will be introducing new families to HEART Academy’s general information, how to enroll at HEART, philosophy of education, roles/expectations of parents, how finances will work, etc.

Capturing our children’s hearts,

Jere & Crissi Allen


If you would like to register, we recommend you and your spouse take these steps to fully make a decision about HEART Academy Coop Classes:


  1. For brand new homeschoolers, attend an “ABC’s of Homeschooling” class – ask Crissi for date and time
  2. Attend an orientation and family interview with dad, mom and children attending HEART about 1.5 hours and then paperwork registration with just one parent.
  3. Paperwork registration with one parent


We believe both spouses are important in choosing the education of the child so we ask you please bring your husband or wife to the meetings.  In addition, please bring the children attending HEART Academy.
