Auburn Church of the Nazarene, Auburn, NY - Our homeschool co - op recently presented a dramatic production of Queen Esther!



We have had 2 wonderful Zoom Discussions with our Home School Educators!

We have had the huge honor to hold two Home School Curricula Collaboration Discussions with some very experienced Home School Educators.  Thank you to all who attended!  Thank you, Jan Wilton, our NEW Council member who represents homeschoolers.  To all of you - your insight, experience and recommendations will provide strong footing for those who are just starting out, just need some support, or are considering whether or not to Home School. 

In the very near future, we will be publishing a list of curriculum that has been recommended and we are also working on a booklet to help those planning to homeschool.  Be watching for those!  There has never been a stronger interest in educating at home and NEW stands ready to support homeschoolers with guidance and resources.

Hailing from Lancaster, Texas, Jan homeschooled her youngest daughter and found the joy of observing her daughter begin to thrive and grow     academically. Witnessing firsthand the challenges and rewards of homeschooling brought to the awareness of the need for and importance of the homeschooling option. She is currently a homeschooling “coach” for her daughter who homeschools her autistic son. Jan has served on the Council for NEin several capacities for the past 12 years.   Her passion is to resource, inspire, encourage, and motivate homeschooling parents in the education of their children.
