Rock Rapids, IA (January 20, 2014) – Alpha Omega Publications is pleased to announce that Tish Schaefer of Austin, Texas, is the winner of a full scholarship to Alpha Omega Academy, the accredited online Christian school of Alpha Omega Publications.
As part of the 12 Days of Deals special in December, Alpha Omega Publications invited homeschool families to enter a drawing to win five year-long classes at Alpha Omega Academy. With more than 370 entrants, Schaefer walked away with the prize. Her daughter, Grace, plans to begin 7th grade at the academy and is looking forward to learning online and connecting with classmates who are working through the same coursework.
"This is her first time with a more formal education," Schaefer said. "With her becoming closer to high school and college, it's important for me to give her what she needs for college."
Schaefer discovered AOP through homeschooling conventions and uses curriculum such as Horizons Math to teach her three children at home in Texas. When she learned about the academy scholarship drawing, her daughter's interest in online schooling prompted her to enter.
"I never thought we would win," Schaefer said. "I just thought it was worth entering."
Alpha Omega Academy's accredited online program provides both high school diploma and college prep tracks, complete with official recordkeeping and transcripts to help graduates transition to higher education with ease.
"I'm looking forward to her having more of a classroom experience without actually being in the classroom," Schaefer said.
