We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Potter's Hand Christian School in San Angelo. The Potter’s Hand started in September of 2009 as an alternative to the local public and private schools. It was begun in an effort to provide assistance to parents in educating their children. In its first year of existence, it was able to assist seven families and successfully meet the special needs of each child. This is a priority for the school, even as it grows to accommodate more students.
The Potter's Hand is designed for families who desire a distinctively Christian education for their children within a small classroom environment. Because of our commitment to small classes, students experience individual attention throughout the day. Core classes do not exceed ten students. A full curriculum is offered for those looking for a full day of classes, but older students may register for one or two classes if they prefer to combine the traditional classroom setting with homeschooling. Juniors and seniors may also enroll in dual credit classes in conjunction with Howard College or Angelo State University.
Although The Potter’s Hand is a non-accredited school, it is staffed by experienced, Christian teachers who believe a high quality of education is important. The teaching of a strong academic curriculum is balanced with an emphasis on the spiritual growth of each student.
The school day begins with Bible class and continues with academics, physical activities, and classes in the arts. Electives offered vary from year to year and have included art, choir, orchestra, yearbook, and robotics. Students in past years have had opportunities to compete in competitions in music, robotics, science fair, and track and field. No classes are held on Fridays although independent work is assigned for that day.
As you consider the best educational experience for your child, please consider the Potter’s Hand Christian School as an alternative for your family. We would love to visit with you about your needs.
