Fellowship Bible Church values the Scriptural principles of family as portrayed throughout the Bible. Our commitment to provide families with the resources needed to train up their children in the way of the Lord extend beyond the Sunday morning worship services into many different areas.
One of the ministries of Fellowship Bible Church involves directly meeting needs of home-schooling families across the Upstate of South Carolina through the Home School Resource Center where students enrolled in classes have the opportunity to study middle and high school subjects in a classroom setting.
Milton Academy of Home Education
MILTON ACADEMY – STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY
We believe that the primary responsibility for the education of children rests with their parents (Deut. 6:4-7; 11:19; Prov. 1:1-7). This belief is shared by many who currently have their children enrolled in public or private schools, But some of these parents do not homeschool their children because they do not feel able to teach advanced courses, such as Chemistry, Algebra, and foreign languages. By pooling teachers trained in these areas, Milton Academy provides assistance to such families so they can pursue the educational option they deem best for their children.
Milton Academy provides excellent instruction that is consistent with the clearly articulated view of evangelical Christianity. In lieu of a separate Doctrinal Statement, we have provided some evangelical confessions held by Milton Academy’s administration and teachers to accurately present the doctrine we believe the Bible teaches.
These documents are:
The London Confession of Faith (1689) a.k.a. the Philadelphia Confession
The Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms (1644)
The Belgic Confession and Heidelberg Catechism
Milton Academy is not a formal school. The students attending classes at Milton are registered homeschoolers, and the primary teaching responsibility remains with the parent. Parents will have the flexibility of choosing the courses best suited to their child’s personal academic needs and development. Courses offered by Milton Academy are not divided by grade, but by academic proficiency. Some courses will use the ‘one-room schoolhouse’ model, where students of different grade levels will take the same course.
