Who we are . . .

As a Scholé Group, we are a homeschooling community that employs the content of a classical curriculum and the pedagogy of restful learning embodied by the word scholé. The word scholé (pronounced skoh-LAY) comes from a Greek word that means “restful learning,” with the connotation of “contemplation,” “conversation,” and “reflection.”  Our mission is to pursue deep engagement that results in enjoyable, permanent learning—that is, to bring scholé to our homeschool co-op.

Our Tutors

cultivating wonder and imagination

Annemarie Barwich

Director & Teacher

After 14 years of homeschooling her four children, Annemarie began working as an online highschool guidance counselor and teacher-facilitator for CFL@Home for 6 years. Annemarie began homeschooling after reading For the Children’s Sake, following the educational principles of Charlotte Mason. Continued reading and study opened the world of classical education, resulting in her vision to begain a local Scholé group.

Monica Hielema

Tutor

With a love for igniting wonder and delight in children, Monica’s passion is to equip students to know, love and practice that wich is true, good and beautiful. God Himself is the embodiment of this truth as He declares His grace to be sufficient and His power to be made perfect in weakness.           (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Katie Kiemeny

Tutor

Katie is rooted in a holistic approach to life, from homesteading to homeschooling.  She has a passion to facilitate Christ centered learning.  She believes community is essential in our homeschooling journey and enjoys learning from others.  Katie loves her family, her horses and the great outdoors. 

Janice Fraser

Tutor

After the privilege homeschooling her 3 sons for 9 years and participating in their formation as socially critical thinkers and men of integrity and responsibility, Janice gratefully returns to the homeschool community to partner with families who joyfully raise their children as their primary responsibility into men and women of virtuous character, ethical hearts and clarity of mind and thought.

Mary Clark

Tutor

Mary, partnering with her husband, continues in her calling to disciple their 5 children; initially through 25 years of home education and now through entrepreneurship and community living, as together they build a common vision and family legacy.

Michelle Champ

Tutor

In 2010, Michelle was prompted to homeschool her daughters, so she cautiously began her journey within the fully-aligned program. Since that first year, Michelle’s eyes have been opened to the beautiful world of classical education where rediscovering the joy of learning alongside her daughters has nurtured a special interest in nature and history as it relates to the Word of God. 

Jolene Edward

Tutor

Jolene is beginning to live from a place of daily surrender as she learns to say “Yes” to her Heavenly Father’s call to adventure and adjusts to an empty nest. She enjoys reading, cooking, games, road trips and meeting new people.
