Our Mission and Values

 
 

The Mission of Oak Grove

Desiring that our children reach their maximum, God-given potential, we are a supportive community of homeschool families seeking to give our children a rich and full education through the best of classroom and homeschool instruction.

The Oak Grove Values


Inspired Learning
Psalm 139:14b: Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. 

We view learning as a joyful adventure. To that end, we make our classrooms a safe, inviting, and nurturing place where children feel comfortable, and we invite children to engage with each area of study through stimulating, creative, and hands-on activities that promote depth of understanding. We weave the story of God’s amazing creativity and his redemptive love through each subject and seek to honor him in the quality and depth of our teaching.

Dynamic Development
Luke 2:52: And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.

We believe each child is a unique creation of God, and we value each child’s growth in mind, body, character, faith, and gifting. We desire to challenge our students with strong curriculum and instruction so that they can rise to their full potential and grow in their ability to think and learn for themselves. Just as important, we envision each student growing in character as they develop and interact in our dynamic learning community.

Engaging Partnerships
Proverbs 1:8-9: Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck.

Proverbs 12:15b: A wise man is he who listens to counsel.

We seek to partner with parents as they walk with God in their responsibility to educate their children. We provide a culture of open, respectful, and engaging dialogue between home teacher and classroom teacher with the goal of helping each child to reach his or her full, God-given potential.

Authentic Relationships
Matthew 22:37-39: And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

In relating to God, to one another, and to our children, we desire to be a God-honoring community who walk together in grace and truth. We provide an environment of support and encouragement for parents, encourage healthy relationships for our children, and seek to draw on the gift of relationship with our God and Father for every aspect of our school culture.

Structured Flexibility
Hebrews 10:24: And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works.

We believe strongly in the twin educational gifts of structure and flexibility. We provide the structure and accountability of a classroom community working together while maintaining freedom for each family to organize their home teaching in a way that provides the desired growth for their children.
