Our mission is to offer quality, affordable classes to homeschoolers in the Atlanta area. Although all of our teachers are Christians, we are open to students and families of different faiths and beliefs. We encourage students to pursue a relationship with Jesus Christ, but we also strive to build a safe, healthy, and loving social and educational environment for all students who join our diverse community, wherever they are in their spiritual life.
- These classes are not part of a formal school. They are
offered by individual teachers to support the homeschooling community.
For information or to register for specific classes, contact the
instructors themselves. Please do not call Lilburn Alliance
Church--they are only providing the place for us to meet.
- Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Each student must have a medical release/liability
waiver form filled out with each instructor. Thank you for your patience with
the paperwork! We want to make sure every child has emergency information
available to each supervising adult. These forms should be sent with the
registration form and fees. You may include multiple children in your
family per form, but each teacher needs her own form.
- Supervised lunch areas are provided for students who
have classes before and after lunchtime. Lunch for
elementary and middle school is upstairs in the Treehouse. Lunch for high
school is in Fellowship Hall. If there is a parent eating with a child,
the child may eat wherever the parent is.
Elementary classes are for children in grades

Those students whose ages do not match the
traditional age ranges are subject to the teacher's approval if their ages vary
more than a year from the norm.
Academic Studies Behavior and Discipline Policy
Eastside Academic Studies seeks to honor God
and serve families. Teachers agree to create an atmosphere of respect and
discipline, and students who do not fit into this atmosphere are challenged to
change their behavior or leave the classes. Several areas in particular merit
- Misuse of One Mission Church property--classes are
held in good faith that those involved will respect and preserve the
campus and its furnishings. Any misuse of property will require parents of
guilty students to pay for repairs and/or replacements needed. Students
may then be asked to leave classes at Eastside, depending on the
seriousness or frequency of the infraction.
- Behavior while on the Eastside campus--Students should
conduct themselves modestly and appropriately. The primary purpose of the classes is to instruct
students in various subjects, and any behavior that distracts any student
from learning, whether during or between classes, may be questioned by the
teachers and staff. Students will either amend their behavior or be asked
to leave classes. This behavior includes how adults or students are
respected, what clothing students choose to wear*, public displays of
affection, choice of activities between classes, and other matters that
may distract from the learning and moral environment. If a student is
required to withdraw from Eastside classes due to behavior issues,
registration fees and tuition paid to that point will not be refunded.
- Supervised lunch areas are provided for students who
have classes before and after lunchtime. If there is a parent eating with
a child, the child may eat wherever the parent is.
- If a seventh-grade or older student does not have a
class for a particular period but must wait for a later class to begin, he
will be enrolled in study hall for a fee of $25 per semester, payable to
the supervisor on duty. Each child will be monitored so that he has a
quiet, supervised place to work. If a parent chooses to stay with a child,
the family is not charged the study hall fee.
- Laptop computers and some other electronic devices such
as tablets are always subject to supervision of instructors and study hall
monitors. Teachers and study hall monitors reserve the right to access
such devices at all times in order to monitor the appropriateness of material. Sharing information (e.g. students looking over the
shoulders of those using computers) with other students on campus is not
allowed unless this is in the direct presence of an instructor who has
knowledge of what is being done on the computer. If instructors see
anything they deem inappropriate, the student will be advised and the
student's device may be confiscated until a parent picks it up from a
- Cell phones are allowed to be carried at all times, but
content shared involving the Internet or sharing of photos and video is
also under the jurisdiction of instructors and supervisors. Instructors
and monitors may decide what their policies are concerning cell phone
- Timely pick up of students by parents--Parents must
pick up their children within 10 minutes of the end of the class the
student has completed.
Eastside cannot become the overseer of students after their last classes
of the day, for their safety and out of respect for the church staff and
Eastside Academic Studies teachers. Parents who have not arranged pick
up of their children may be asked to pay up to $1 per minute they are
late. Habitually late pick-ups can lead to families being asked to
leave the program due to safety and monitoring issues. Study hall is
available for students who need to wait between classes for their next
- Students must have written parental permission to leave
the premises with other students. This permission must be on their person.
- No child can be left unsupervised by either a parent or
supervisor at any time on any part of the Eastside campus.
*We ask that
our students dress modestly. We are asking that students not wear sports
shorts, muscle shirts, bare-midriff shirts, skinny-strap tops, off
the shoulder looks, etc. Shorts and skirts should be no higher than mid-thigh.
We have a great group of students here at Eastside. We would like to make
sure that we minimize distractions and that everyone is treated with Godly
