About A Latere Academy
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!

Statement of Faith
The Holy scriptures, the Bible, is God's revelation to man. It was authored and inspired by the Holy Spirit through men. It is complete, true, trustworthy, and inerrant in the original manuscript.
There is only one living and true God. He is all powerful, infinite, and eternal. God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
Mankind carries special value as being created in the image of God. Man chose to rebel and sin against God, causing all mankind to be under the curse of sin and death.
Deity of Jesus
Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He is both fully God and fully man.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He calls men to the Savior, and effects regeneration and understanding of truth.
Death and Resurrection
Jesus Christ, living a sinless life, fulfilled the law. His death and blood shed through crucifixion provided the only provision for redemption of sinful man. He raised from the dead in flesh and bone, appeared to His disciples, and ascended into Heaven.
