Our state requires us to name our school so we chose Fellowship Christian School. I just made school picture ID's for my kids, with them there are some state sponsored things we can get into free. They also double as "in case of emergency cards" and I carry one in my purse for each of them too. I love the idea of T-shirts though. I hadn't thought of that.

I am graduating this year and we go to a homeschool group at our church. Through this support group, we get to have a graduation ceremony. And because I am the oldest and I am graduating first, I get to be in charge of picking a name for our school. I was thinking of using the meanings of each of the kids names somehow, the only problem is, my youngest brother's name means "manly" which is fine for my 2 brothers but doesn't work well for me. So I need help coming up with a good name for all of us.

Homeschool Name?

I have 3 girls and I was thinking of naming our HS something like: (our last name) Girls Academy. What do you all think? Is adding the 'girls' part sound corny, or worse, does it sound like a place for wayward girls??

I know this is a Old Post but It is how I found this very useful Forum so I wanted to share with you the name of our Home School. Also because it has very sentimental value to me.
Our Name is Stender Creative Learning Academy.
I tossed around a lot of names with the help of all of the post here. I am a creative person and I love being creative. And I want My Boys education to be Creative. I also tossed around adding the names of Old Learning or Old Creative Learning and ect. For the reason that I see some of the Old School learning from my school days that truly taught me things are not being used in the schools of today.
But I decided to go with a name in loving memory of My Mother who was all about education and us girls getting a good education as well as helping us bettering our chances of a better education while still in the public school system. When the school couldn't provide textbooks to bring home or early in our education when there were so many heavy school books to bring home and we had a long walk to and from school. Our Mother found where they sold the school books at and purchased the very expensive textbooks so that we would have them at home. No matter how financially poor and broke we were. Our Mother educated us on many everyday Life Skills that has totally helped us in adulthood that we never thought of them as being lessons way back when. <3
Our Mother is no longer with us. But at the age of 69 she was still seeking out knowledge. Our Mother was taken from us as she was on her way to catch a bus to head off to her early morning classes at her college. Education and knowledge meant so very much to her. So now Stender Creative Learning Academy is born. <3
Thank You everyone for sharing your Homeschool names and how you came about them. They so very much in not just in given our homeschool a name but as well as Honor a very strong willed woman who knew the value of Education, Learning and Knowledge. My Mother. Thank You from the bottom of my heart. <3
Knowledge is Golden

My oldest, who went to college, had the best time telling everyone that he was from "[LastName] Academy" haha. It does sound prestigious.

The kids really enjoying having a name for our school and it gives them a response other than home school when meeting other kids.
