The Purpose of HOW
The Purpose of H.O.W. (Homeschoolers of Wyoming) is to provide support and further the interests of family-funded, parent-directed home education of children. The support provides a network for legislative purposes, newsletters, conventions, and activities. Membership in HOW is $20 and is open to all family-funded, parent-directed home educating families in Wyoming. The leadership is Christian directed and lead, consisting of couples serving as board of directors. These officials advise and inform the county contacts throughout the state. The county contacts volunteer to pass on information and help those in their county. Local support groups are very loosely structured in most cases. We encourage home educating families to join HOW, HSLDA, and their local support group. Please read below for more information. If you have any questions, contact the HOW office.
Ordo Amoris Scholé Academy
Ordo Amoris Scholé Academy is a community of homeschool families that facilitates contemplative, intentional learning, with a particular emphasis on Truth, Beauty, and Virtue. Using the Christian classical tradition, we seek to develop a child’s educational experience through the lens of God’s Word and the beauty of God’s creation. We seek to bring together like-minded Christian homeschooling families in a liturgical community context offering rhythmic learning through high-quality, creatively taught classes, punctuated by celebrations in learning, inspiring students to live out worship and virtuous action in community.
Parents are welcome to stay and work alongside their students, gaining a deeper understanding of the classical model. They are also welcome to drop off their children, and only attend community days during their required rotation weeks and celebrations. We cultivate an atmosphere of mentorship and service. Academic Mentors serve to mentor parents and students alike. Parents serve to mentor students in the classroom.
We are a community of homeschool families in Cheyenne, Wyoming and the surrounding area. During the school year, we meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. at a local church for our “Campus Days” (i.e., our gatherings). On our Campus Days, our community of families comes together for a morning gathering, individual classes, and a meal. We offer classes to students in four different stages of learning: Abecedarians (PK-K), Lower Grammar (1-3), Upper Grammar (3-6), Dialectic and Rhetoric (7-12).
