Our program has been available to home school students since 2000. We are operating under the umbrella of Jackson Area Home Educators. We are no longer affiliated with Spring Arbor University.
The students also have an opportunity to perform two concerts a year, one at Christmas time and one in May. We will also seek opportunities to use our abilities to be a blessing in the community, and we will teach the students to serve the Lord in their churches.
Mrs. Michelle Castle will be the new director of the band and chior. The J.A.H.E. Board provides oversight for the program.
