About E.A.G.L.E. Home School Association

EAGLE stands for Education Administered in a Godly Living Environment. We are a group of Christian home schooling families that have joined together to offer support, encouragement, and advice for each other. Our volunteering parents plan activities, field trips, and classes to enhance the home education experience. We currently have about 145 families in our group. Most group activities take place in the Corinth area of Alcorn County, Mississippi. Member families sometimes come from the surrounding counties of Prentiss, Tishomingo, Tippah, and Benton, as well as Tennessee and Alabama.

We Are Not A School

Parents are the primary academic educators of their children.

We Are Not A Church

Parents are the primary spiritual educators of their children. We encourage families to worship together in the church of their own choice. EAGLE is comprised of members from many denominations.

Statement of Faith

Our association and leaders are guided by these principles:

  • The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is never wrong and never contradicts.
  • God has existed from all eternity in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ, born of a virgin, is God, came in human flesh, being fully God and fully man, except without sin.
  • Man is, by nature, sinful and is inherently in need of salvation.
  • Christ's death provides atonement for our sins. He rose from the dead in the flesh.
  • Salvation is offered as a free gift to all sinners. This gift must be responded to by individual faith, not trusting in any personal works, but only in the death and resurrection of Christ alone.
  • Children are a heritage from the Lord, entrusted to parents to train up in righteousness for His glory.
  • Jesus will literally come to earth again in the Second Advent.
  • We believe the Bible's literal account in Genesis of the creation of the world and all that exists is the only framework for teaching in all science, origin of life and history courses.
  • We believe that the term "marriage" has only one meaning and that is marriage sanctioned by God which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture.
