The purpose of Hallstrom is to come alongside home school Christian parents who desire their children to grow strong in the Lord and to receive an outstanding education.
Hallstrom offers home schooling families a unique co-op experience with an emphasis on flexibility, affordability, quality, and high Biblical standards. Families will find academic and elective classes at Hallstrom to complement any home schooling approach. Hallstrom meets once per week on Tuesday at Crosspoint Church in Rockford and is designed to accompany and support homeschooling at home the rest of the week.
Since 1993, Hallstrom has existed to help families home educate successfully from preschool through high school. Our workshops are a unique educational experience in that we combine a high level of commitment from parents, students, and teachers. We are a Christian ministry strongly committed to all that is best and highest in home education and intend only to aid and supplement what dedicated families are already pursuing at home. Hallstrom parents, teachers, and Board members understand the foundational function of the Hallstrom Statement of Faith and are in agreement with our Statement of Faith or the Nicene Creed.
The policy decisions of Hallstrom are determined by its Board of Directors, whose members are appointed by the Chairman and current Board Members. The primary responsibility of the Board of Directors is to represent Christ and Christ-like ideas in setting forth policies for Hallstrom. The Board's secondary responsibility is to fairly represent the families and teachers who participate in our workshops. Teachers at Hallstrom function as independent contractors, working in agreement with the Hallstrom Board.
"Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to retire late, to eat the bread of painful labors; for He gives to His beloved even in his sleep. Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they shall not be ashamed, when they speak with their enemies in the gate." — Psalm 127
