Being a part of this physical education program and ministering to your child(ren) means a lot to us. With God's hand leading the way, we offer these classes as a service to our local home school community. Because of this, we keep our prices very reasonable. In addition, we offer a discount for each child starting with the second child that is registered in our elementary and middle school classes. We meet at Oakwood Baptist Church in Chattanooga. Our fall semester begins in August and our spring semester begins in January. Our schedule and fees are as follows: (Please scroll down for a description of each course)

Course Description


Physical Education Program (K5 - 12th grade) - All grade levels
Michaels Homeschool Academy is open to children of all ages from K5 through 12th grade. Each high school student that goes through our program will be able to meet the PE credits required for graduation up to 1 credit hour (a weekly activity log will be kept for the high school levels only). Our PE program consist of a short devotional followed by warm ups, stretches, calisthenics, sport of the week, and so much more. We teach over the fundamentals of baseball/softball, soccer, flag football, basketball, volleyball and tennis. Every PE student will not only be strengthened physically but also spiritually as we strive to fulfill God's calling by starting each class with a prayer and a short Bible devotional using the "Sticky Situations" book for our elementary school age group and the "Jesus Calling" book for our middle and high school age groups. Each fall semester, we begin by preparing our students for the Presidential Fitness Testing which takes place in the spring of each year. In keeping a well rounded program, we have also incorporated several field trips per semester which consist of swimming, hiking/canoeing, horseback riding, a trip to Wonderworks in Pigeon Forge, skating, bowling, and so much more. At the end of the year, every child receives a certificate of participation and a few will receive a metal and/or trophy for a special recognition. Through this program, all our students can also enjoy interacting with one another and building lasting friendships while at the same time working on keeping their minds and bodies healthy through exercise as we work on strength, endurance, coordination, flexibility, and agility.  


Health Class (9th - 12th grade) 

This very thorough and balanced high school course addresses physical, mental, social, and spiritual health biblically and scientifically. The style is conversational, interactive, and engaging. It also presents the Bible as the foundation for a healthful lifestyle. Our goal for this class is to help students understand the concepts of human growth and development, prevention and control of disease, consumer health, injury prevention, first aid, personal health, safety education, nutrition, exercise, and the use and abuse of unhealthy substances, among others. At the end of this course, students can choose to get their CPR and First Aid certifications. Students are encouraged to take notes in class and ask questions both during class time and during the week via phone, email, or by designated personal sessions. There will be homework each week to both introduce new material that will be discussed in class the following week and also to review what was learned in class that week. Homework will be graded for both completion and accuracy. Students will also be graded on tests and potential projects. Related field trips are being considered.    




*Here at M.H.A., we feel it is our duty to serve our home school community in a greater degree by providing these outstanding services and at the same time answering a higher call.  We are also blessed to continue embarking in this adventurous journey and give God the glory for all our accomplishments.* 


*ALL PE CLASSES WILL BE CONDUCTED @ THE OAKWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH IN CHATTANOOGA GYMNASIUM*
