Scent of Water

Home School Learning Community

Grades K - 8


This program from the Center for Redemptive Education offers "the whole story for the whole child" to support home schooling families in their quest to align with God's design for their children.


As explained on our Families page, we believe God's design for teaching and learning is biblical, relational, integral and experiential.

Highly qualified Educators invite your child to engage deeply with the Creator and His creation. With a strong outdoor education focus, Scent of Water classes reflect all school subjects while also celebrating the "emergent curriculum" that springs from the interests, ideas and explorations of the students themselves.
