Oak Cottage Application

Once we receive your application, we will call you to set up an interview.  After that, it’s a small set of guidelines to read and agree to, a form to sign and a check to write.  Then you can join us in counting down the days til school begins!


In trying to decide if this is the right choice for your family, consider the following:

*Nature study and journaling, poetry, Scripture, hymn and folk song, memory work, Shakespeare stories, literature, history, art & music appreciation, and geography — all for about the same cost as music, dance or martial arts lessons.  (This works out to be approximately $5/hour.)

*While serving your children, the two of us hope to serve you, too. What could you do with up to 12 extra hours in your week?  Perhaps you would like to focus on building a foundation with your younger children or digging deeper with older students.  Maybe you need scheduled time for planning and cleaning, or the chance to run errands with fewer “helpers.”  Have you always wanted time to take an art class? Or a nap….
