Trellis Christian Academy


Hello everyone - I used to teach at the Vineyard Homeschool Co-op, and now work at the library in Star, where I teach our homeschool programs! I just wanted to let you know about some free enrichment opportunities.

We are doing some fun virtual programs right now - I have a degree in art, and so I am doing art enrichment programs that feature a different artist of the month. This month it is Wayne Thiebaud, - he had his 100th birthday in November, and is still painting!

Find the presentation and a couple art projects to do with it here!
The link to the print-out for the bubble gum machine color theory project is in the description below the video.

We have a new homeschool program going live every Monday on our youtube channel. - art programs, the Lesser Known History program, STEAM and craft programs.
There are also art and craft kits available every Wednesday for curbside pickup at all Ada Community Library branches (Lake Hazel, Victory, Hidden Springs, and Star), and some week STEAM kits, teen/tween craft kits, and adult craft kits! A lot of families have told us those have been sanity savers for them - a project you don't need to plan or purchase. Check out our current offerings at

If you would like to get on the email list of what we are up to every month, just drop me a note at [email protected].

Happy homeschooling!

VCA at a Glance

Vineyard Christian Academy is a Christian Schools International (CSI) accredited school providing Christian education for students in PK - 8th grades. We are a NAUMS certified University Model school in which professional teachers combine the best attributes of traditional classroom schooling, (Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays), with home-based learning (Wednesday and Fridays). Our goal is to prepare academically solid students with the ability to succeed in whatever direction they choose. We develop independent thinking and self-initiative while working together in classes and small groups to grow relational and community building skills. We believe in fostering the development of Christian character to prepare our students to courageously impact the world for Jesus Christ.
