About Shine​

Shine is a Christian homeschool community in which parents cooperate together to provide enriching academic classes and extracurricular opportunities to homeschooling students.


Shine provides an opportunity for home-educated children to develop accountability and academic enrichment, as well as experience healthy competition, teamwork, and the challenges of interpersonal relationships in a semi- “traditional” school environment.  All the classes at Shine are designed to provide group learning opportunities in a fun and hands on, yet structured, academic environment.
