HIGH SCHOOL CLASSES FOR HOMESCHOOLERS
Pillar is not a school or a homeschool "learning center," but does offer supplemental classes for high school students. All classes are consistent with our mission statement. Those classes presently being offered are meant to enhance, but not replace, the Christian homeschool experience. Parents are most welcomed to attend classes. Most instructors will assign a final grade for course completion and some instructors may require parental participation in the grading process. Courses are offered at no charge as part of our mission. "You mean, there are no course fees?" That is correct. All courses offered at The Pillar Foundation are free, unless otherwise noted. Students and their parents are responsible, however, for the cost of course materials and books. Courses are taught only at The Pillar Foundation in Ellisville, MO. The Pillar Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization to which voluntary and unsolicited donations may be made to help further our mission.
