All are welcome! De Novo Homeschool Network & Skye Chase Academy are ministries at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Alexandria, Virginia. Our homeschool community started in 1999 to support and encourage families who have chosen home education for their children in northern Virginia. We have a thriving community that welcome families from many faiths and backgrounds.
Membership in De Novo Homeschool Network provides a wide variety of social gatherings, Kennedy Center performances, park days, family potlucks, and monthly field trips. Our community also supports an all day Friday co-op, Skye Chase Academy (SCA), with a wide variety of elective classes offered by parents and volunteers.
All are welcomed to visit a De Novo or SCA event to determine if our community would be beneficial to their family prior to membership. You may contact Renee Fornshill at firstname.lastname@example.org or Terri Hood at email@example.com for information on De Novo's upcoming events or for more information about applying for Skye Chase Academy.
De Novo Homeschool Network & Skye Chase Academy is a catholic homeschool community with the purpose to encourage parents as the primary educators of their children. We seek to form friendships, share resources, and learn from one another as we grow together in our families and in our faith.
In the light of Christ, our mission is to:
* Build a diverse homeschool community that welcomes all families,
* Pray, worship, celebrate, and grow together in our our understanding of God and the great things He has done,
* Be His head, heart, and hands of love to one another and to our community,
* And to make God known to the world as we grow in our faith.
