What is SHEEP?
SHEEP is a collection of classes for homeschoolers that currently meets once a week on Thursdays at Summerville Church of Christ. SHEEP offers classes from preschool, to elementary, to high school. We offer various classes from art, to sciences, to PE, to history to chorus.

More about SHEEP
SHEEP, Summerville Home Educators Enriching Partners began just over four years ago. It all started with me, trying to find someone to teach my child how to write. I found there were other parents who felt they needed help in some other subject areas. I then began to ask parents what areas they would like to teach. Stefanie Basinger graciously offered her church and SHEEP opened its doors for the 2005-2006 school year at Old Fort Baptist.
The 1st year we offered about 25 classes and served over 100 students.
SHEEP moved to Summerville Church of Christ the 2008-2009 school year. Our 2008-2009 school year we had over 60 classes and over 270 students.
The mission of SHEEP is to glorify God by assisting Christian Home Educators. SHEEP is an educational partnership designed to help facilitate the home education experience and is run by parents just like you who have the desire to share their knowledge and expertise in a certain subject area. It is not the desire of SHEEP to take over the education of your child, but to simply assist the family in their home school journey.
The Parent’s Requirements
You, the parents, are ultimately responsible for the education of your child. SHEEP cannot guarantee that any of the classes offered will meet your individual and specific needs. Further, SHEEP cannot guarantee high school credit will be given for a particular course or class. You are required to make sure your child completes the work at home to insure a credit in the class. You are strongly encouraged to speak to your accountability association prior to enrolling with SHEEP should it be your desire to receive credit of any kind from any class offered by SHEEP.
SHEEP is simply a starting off point. Since SHEEP meets only once a week, the majority of the course work will have to be completed at home. This especially true in courses where you as the parent hope to award a high school credit.
