"Thank you for the great experience...


“Thank you for the great experience as this was our first time but certainly not our last. My youngest (1st grade) had so much fun. He asked if we had one more day of testing.” -Christine L




"Good morning! I had to write and give you my heartfelt thanks...


“Good morning! I had to write and give you my heartfelt thanks and gratitude for all you do to enable homeschooled children take the PSAT in such a positive, calm environment. My daughter took the PSAT last year at GCU (through Covenant Home School Resource Center) and had such a positive experience--although we didn't realize truly just HOW positive and awesome it was until she took the SAT this past Saturday at our local public school. She said it was so dark, depressing, and so very different from her experience at CHSRC. She loved how CHSRC staff thoroughly went over the rules and instructions at the very beginning (which was hardly covered at all at the public high school and left her quite confused on parts). She loved how CHSRC had a large screen/projector with helpful info and apparently a large clock that counted down the time (she missed these at the public school). The staff at the high school were unprofessional and disheveled (she said the administrator "looked like he had come in off the streets and hadn't showered in a week"). CHSRC staff were very kind, caring, and friendly she said. The bathroom at the public school was the worst she'd ever seen in regards to graffiti, foul language, and overall DARKNESS--how sad. She said she had to shut her eyes in there, it was so bad. We truly felt fortunate to not only have the freedom to school at home in a warm, uplifting, positive, caring environment; but also to have her first testing experience happen in a very similar positive environment through CHRSC. Thank you so much for providing this option for homeschoolers in our fine state. Keep up the fantastic job you're already doing for the homeschool community--we sure appreciate all you do for us!!” -Carissa S
