Welcome to Friendly.
Do you feel less confident teaching science or math than you do history? Do you want your child to experience the joy of artistic expression or a new language, but your skills lie in English? Or maybe it's completely the other way around for you! Friendly Educators was established in the 2012-2013 school year by parents just like you, seeking to bridge the gaps we all have through a distinctly Christian educational enrichment program dedicated to excellence. We would be honored to have you join our community.
Founder and Board President
We believe in our students, and their parents' ability to empower them to succeed in a highly complex and changing world, and to do so in a way that strengthens their faith. Friendly Educators meets on Tuesdays, from 8:30am until 3:00pm, and is open to any home school family in the Triad area. If you can dream it, you can do it, and we're here to help.
Friendly Educator Tutorial programs are designed to enhance and aid home school parents and students by providing high quality class choices, taught in a uniquely Christian environment, by experienced teachers, who specialize in a large variety of subject matters.
Class begins on Aug. 23 and ends on Nov. 22 for 26-week courses and Dec. 6 for 30-week courses (schedules are noted with each course description). Fall break is Nov. 8. For the spring semester, class starts on Jan. 10, 2017. We will take a spring break on March 7 and conclude the year on April 11 for 26-week courses and April 25 for 30-week courses. If we need a make-up day for bad weather, classes will end one week later (April 18 for 26-week classes and May 2 for 30-week classes). Our year-end celebration will be held Friday, April 21. Generally our classes last for the entire year, but there are a handful that meet only one semester.
Parents and students alike state year-after-year that Chapel is one of the deciding factors in making Friendly Educators their tutorial of choice.
Chapel is an experience unique to Friendly Educators, in the Triad. Babies, toddlers, children, teens, teachers and parents come together in an engaging and diverse environment of praise and worship, teaching, drama, guest speakers, class spotlights, prayer, Bible reading and special events.
“It’s my favorite part of the day,” is what many students have told us. Students are encouraged to not only participate, but to take an active role in leadership. Regular leadership opportunities include worship team, audio visual, lighting, speaking, reading and reciting, drama, planning and organization.Friendly Educators believes a well-rounded education encompasses the mind, body and spirit of each student. We feel a homeschool tutorial is uniquely positioned to empower the next generation of believers to lead the church and connect to the world in an increasingly complex society. It’s more than what we do, it’s who we are.
We're taking our annual "family photo" tomorrow during chapel. We want everyone to be in this huge group picture (kids, parents, teachers), so please come at 12:35 even if you're not normally on campus then. Smile pretty!
