Strengthening and Supporting Homeschool Families
ALL ABOUT NEW COMMONWEALTH SCHOOLS
What is a New Commonwealth School?
A once a week school that is owned and operated by the families that run it. It is a model of a homeschool co-op that is designed to last 20 or more years. The school is eventually run by an elected board that governs based on written documents that protect the founder’s original vision of educational philosophy and the vision and mission of the school. An NCS is run on a volunteer system. Each family that participates gets to put their “Parent Power” into the school and see it run effectively and efficiently thanks to systems, roles, and stewardships.
A New Commonwealth School is all of this, but it is most importantly a place where the homeschool family feels supported and strengthened and everyone (youth and adults alike) is increasing their educational capacities while interacting with amazing peers. It is a positive educational culture!
