Mission and history
THRIVE is a co-operative independent education ministry designed to offer an affordable opportunity for families to join together and share talents and resources to assist and support one another in achieving mutual educational and enrichment goals.
The group is incorporated in Georgia as THRIVE Christian Homeschool of GA, Inc. Our web address is www.thrivechs.org. Classes meet on Mondays and Thursdays during the academic year in Marietta, GA.
THRIVE began in Marietta, GA, in the Fall of 2016 offering a variety of academic and enrichment classes and social opportunities on a co-operative basis.
THRIVE is a discipleship ministry. Members include families from many Christian denominations and a variety of local churches. We embrace the Bible as our common authority for faith and conduct. Although we desire the salvation of all, we are not an evangelistic ministry. We minister primarily to those who are already part of the Body of Christ. We endeavor to teach all classes from a conservative Christian perspective, leaving specific doctrinal training to parents and churches. Parents are required to submit written testimonies of their faith as part of the interview process. We will only allow membership to families who can honestly and whole heartedly sign our Statement of Faith and agree to uphold the mission, educational vision, and purpose of our co-op.
THRIVE membership currently includes families living in Woodstock, Marietta, Acworth, Canton, Kennesaw, Holly Springs, Jasper, Hickory Flat, Waleska, and other areas nearby.
