Bayshore Christian Homeschool + Plus

As we continue to serve the Greater Tampa Bay area, we have discovered there are many families interested in enriching their homeschool academic and extracurricular program in a Christian academic setting.

BCS has created a one-day-a-week program with a certified teacher to assist parents of homeschool students in Kindergarten through 5th grade*, as well as offer enrichment/social opportunities for their students through Spanish, Music, PE, Art and our weekly chapel service. Between their enrichment classes, Homeschool + Plus students complete projects that circle around different themes.

*Students must be age-eligible for Kindergarten through 5th grade in order to attend. BCS is not the school of record for Homeschool + Plus students. 

Homeschool Plus Teacher

A letter from Ms. Pearce:

My name is Ginny Pearce, and I am so excited to be teaching Homeschool Plus again this year. I grew up in Tampa and attended Auburn University where I earned my degree in education. My husband and I spent a few years in Charleston, South Carolina before returning to Tampa to raise our children. We have four children who I have homeschooled since kindergarten. This will be my third year teaching the program and my fifth year homeschooling my own children. Before I began homeschooling, I spent six years teaching 3rd and 4th grade at Bayshore Christian School. In addition, I also taught kindergarten for six years at Tinker Elementary and one year in Charleston, South Carolina. I have enjoyed every minute of teaching and am excited to support the homeschool community any way I can.
