Who is True North? The name True North comes from our belief that the absolute truth comes from the word of God. The Bible is the compass that we use for direction.
What is True North? True North is a Christian Education taught in two days a week. True North offers a full academic curriculum including Bible, Language Arts, Grammar, Math, Science and History, as well as something Texas A&M refers to as "The Other Education." One day consists of academic classes. The second day consists of enrichment classes such as Spanish, Sign language, ACT/SAT prep, Dual Credit electives, karate, sports, guitar, keyboarding, choir, art, computer programming, cheer, baseball, soccer, as well as a second day of Math and also homework help for those that need a little more instruction time.
Why create the True North? We are passionate about giving our children a quality education that includes Christ and points our children in His direction. Right now if parents do not make a lot of money their choice is public school or home school. We want to provide another option: a place where the children can meet and be instructed in a real quality curriculum, where they are instructed in a classroom environment but continue to work on teacher- designated activities and assignments at home under their parents’ instruction. It is a true partnership between the instructor and the home schooling parent, teaming up to work through curriculum and ensure the child is gaining wisdom and intellect. We want to bridge the gap for those that want a different education but can not afford private school.
When did True North open? True North launched its first year in the fall of 2017 with a team of 14 teachers/admins and 62 students. We currently house 92 students! Our school days are Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00-2:50.
How is True North going to accomplish this? True North has obtained its 501(c)3 not for profit. True North has accepted a designated number of students. We have partnered with Lone Star College for dual credit classes to ensure our future students graduate with college credit.
We are concerned with growing the next generation with core Christian values, back to basics manners. and a love for life.
