Mission Statement

Bay Area Schools in Christ (BASIC) is a Christian homeschoolers' support group serving private, independent home schooling families in the vicinity of mid-Peninsula/South Bay, CA.  BASIC was created over 20 years ago by Christian homeschooling families to provide Bay Area parents with a means to fellowship with other Christian homeschooling parents in an environment dedicated to Christ. Our goal is to support and encourage both instructors and students through fellowship and sharing of ideas. To do this, BASIC provides a means of communication for Christian parents offering classes, recreational activities, and educational helps to other homeschooling families.

Membership Benefits

BASIC has two foundational activities that are central to its Mission. They are Teachers Night Out (TNO) and Park Day. TNO is a time for all instructors, both moms and dads, to reflect and share on their strengths and challenges, and to listen to speakers on specific topics for homeschoolers.

Park Day is for parents and children to gather in an outdoor setting and share fun and fellowship, growing and games, trials and trust, without the structure of a classroom.

BASIC runs a Yahoo Group, basiccommunique, for members only, where we share field trips, classes, co-ops, prayer support, and curriculum support. We also publish a monthly electronic newsletter.

BASIC also publishes an annual membership directory.

In all this we embolden our members to hold Christ as their standard.

BASIC Statement of Faith

Our statement of faith is subservient to the Holy Bible. It is used as a tool to promote, achieve, and maintain harmony.  Every member of BASIC agrees to work in conjunction with the following:
  1. God created the heavens, the earth and all life.  He is active in the world today and history reflects His awesome work.  All of nature declares His glory.
  2. The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is without error, is the inspired Word of God, and is the revelation of God Himself to humanity.
  3. We believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was God, came in human flesh, being fully God and fully man, without sin.
  4. All men and women have a sinful nature and, therefore, are under His wrath and His just condemnation.  No person can earn forgiveness or reach perfection on his own.  
  5. Jesus Christ, the sinless Lamb of God, came into the world to pay the penalty for man’s sin and enables us to be redeemed and made whole.  He came because of God’s love for us, and it is only through Christ that any person can obtain eternal life through faith and grace.
