The Heart of the discerning acquires knowledge,
for the ears of the wise SEEK it out.
Are you a homeschool teacher? Do you often wish your children had a place to learn in a group setting with their peers? Do you find it difficult to work extracurricular activities into your school day? Do you ever feel the need for encouragement and/or support from other homeschool teachers?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should join SEEK Homeschool Co-op!
SEEK is an acronym for “Sea Road Educational Enrichment of Kennebunk.” There are several strategic benefits for getting involved in the SEEK community. All parents have a variety of different gifts and experiences and SEEK allows parents many ways to get involved and make learning fun and engaging for the children. The program also enriches the homeschool experience by providing group-oriented classes taught by homeschool teachers. Finally, the encouragement homeschool teachers and families will receive from sharing resources and interacting together is critical since teachers and students can sometimes feel isolated during the school year.
What is its purpose?
The Purpose of SEEK is to supplement home education with an organized enrichment program that facilitates physical, mental, social and spiritual growth.
Who is this for?
The SEEK program is specifically designed for homeschool students in grades K-12.
