About SHABACH! Christian Academy Homeschool


Anita M. Gibson

Homeschool Director



Welcome to SHABACH 2.0, where we have shifted to Oversight  and Tutor/Online program referral. We will provide one-on-one consulting to assist families with class selection. Monthly field trips and social events for students of all ages are being planned for members only.

Our goal is that each student becomes a master of academic skills, a life-long learner, and an example of Godly character.


We will offer additional parent training, such as, Assessing how your student learns, The basics of homeschooling, and How to transition to high school, etc. This focused assistance will prepare you for a more successful homeschool experience. We have access to various class options and will be  setting up one on one meetings with parents to help find the classes/online programs your children will need for this school year. You will be guided through the entire process. Our director, Anita Gibson, will personally assist with putting together each family’s homeschool plan/schedule for the 2021-2022 school year.


Registration for 2021-2022 - Don’t forget to register your student for the Fall. Parents MUST officially register their students by completing and submitting your Shabach Homeschool Application to Karen Monasingh via kmonasingh@smionline.org AND rfloyd@smionline.org. Current families be aware that the previous online enrollment questionnaire was used to assist with course offerings for the fall and DID NOT OFFICIALLY REGISTER YOUR STUDENT(S). If you do not submit a completed application form your student(s) will not be registered under our Oversight Program for 2021-2022.

Our Foundation Scripture

"Our foundational verse is “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
