About A Latere Academy

Ellen's Story

After ten years of educating my four children I was struggling to launch them into high school, put together an adequate curriculum and meet all the individual needs of each child.  My desire was to have everyone at home, but I felt like I was failing.  Looking for a break I struggled with my options.  Private school was expensive, but public school lacked the Christ-centered discipling I desired. We started to pray and God birthed a vision.

Could we have the best of both worlds?  Could I have a break during the week and still be actively involved in my children’s education?  Could we help cultivate community and meet the needs of mothers and students? This is the heartbeat of A Latere Academy.

Welcome to A Latere. In Latin it means “alongside”.   Our desire is to partner with you to help sustain your home education journey. We offer a full curriculum, extracurricular activities, parental support all within a Christ-filled environment.


Will you join us in the journey?  We can’t wait to walk alongside you!
