De Novo Homeschool Network & Skye Chase Academy are ministries of 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 homeschool community that welcome families from a rich and diverse background.
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 a Friday co-op called 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 homeschool community would be beneficial to your family prior to membership. You may contact Renee Fornshill at firstname.lastname@example.org or Terri Hood at email@example.com for information. Our calendar of events are under the De Novo tab above.
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.
