Homeschool Center Enrichment Clubs

The Abundant Life Homeschool Center offers a variety of enrichment clubs for all ages and interests to help your children connect, learn, and grow. 

God has assembled an incredible group of teachers and staff who love Jesus and who are committed to creating an environment of fun, safe, in-person learning for your students. Each teacher has a passion for the topic of their chosen club! These clubs are not meant to replace your at-home curriculum, but to enrich your student’s learning. 

Who?

The Homeschool Center Clubs are enrichment clubs for your homeschool students in grades kindergarten–12. They are open to all homeschool students and you do not need to be an Abundant Life member to attend.
