We are a church school ministry of Lighthouse Baptist Church, Stevenson, Alabama. Our mission is to provide a Christian school education or covering for home schooling families throughout Alabama and to equip parents with the tools and support necessary to those who feel called to Christian Education or to home school their children. While a statement of faith is not required, we are a Christian covering and our mission is to provide a witness in our leadership and activities that would reflect a Christian attitude.
Journey of Faith Christian School is a school with a Christian Worldview, We prefer that at least one parent has experienced salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ, we do not require it. We do not require weekly, monthly, nor yearly meetings but they are recommended when they are planned. Curriculum choice is up to the parent/child since all children learn things differently. We do require you send us 2 progress reports a year, January and June. Progress reports will help us to help you if and when you need help. Number of school days are between 140-180, the choice is up to the parent. We do not require testing since this is not mandatory, not all children are testers and we understand this.
Registration Fee for the coverschool is $125 per year per family...we offer a scholarship for those who need the assistance and payment plans, if needed. If you need to attend the school those fees are set up differently and you will need to contact the school for more information about this....scholarships are also available for the school, if needed.
We do have a support group that meets on a weekly and or monthly basis. We have co-op classes, fieldtrips, graduations, yearly awards for each student, transcripts, yearbooks, proms, and much more. We offer curriculum advice but we do not provide curriculum.
We open our meetings, co-op classes, and fieldtrips to all families. We do not charge extra for any of this unless a co-op class needs supplies. Donations are accepted for classes if you wish to give a donation, but it's not necessary.
