Does your homeschool have a motto?

Recommended Posts

The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.


Albert Einstein


Whatever you can do or dream, begin it.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe






A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.






Little by little, one travels far.

J. R. R. Tolkien



my actual motto is in my sig line and has been the same for years.

It isn't an official motto (though how fabulous would it look on a transcript?), but in a family of over-cautious types, we often find ourselves reminding one another, "No one will die." Nobody ever died or was even maimed from a torn shirt, a poor grade on a Latin quiz, or a spilled glass of water.

If you have a motto for your school, or a favorite saying about education, what is it?




It could be anything from "Careful, consistent work needs to be done each day" (quoting JLD from this forum) to some famous saying on education.



"Dear Lord, help me to not strangle these kids" is our motto. :lol:


Can you tell the past few weeks have been rough?

In the younger years we had songs for each year, emphazing our school motto...(I have two boys/no girls)


Our school's name was Lighthouse Academy


Here's a sample:

song for (K-2)


Lighthouse a-cad-e-my

I am so proud to be

a beau-ti-ful light for all to see.


Lighthouse a-cad-e-my

For Him, A light I'll be

I tell everyone about His love.


(We started every school day with this song, It really helped get things started) Kind of like a pledge of allegiance.


Grades 3-5:

Lighthouse A-cad-e-my

I will serve my neighbor joy-ful-ly

I will do my best to be a student of ex-cel-lence

I will seek my Lord with all my heart, my soul, my strength and then

in honor I'll become the man God wants me to be.



And finally: (grades 3-5, with a rap kind of beat) Charlotte mason style:


Light......house (clap, clap, clap, clap, clap)


I am, I am a child of God you see,

I can, with God's power

I ought, to do my duty

I will, be a shining light and do what's right

Oh, yeaaaaaaah!


Now, after 6th we do nothing.

It's sad...but my kids remember those songs well and have good memories of them, even if they were kinda dorky. I think they made us feel like a team and it started everything out on a good note.

I miss those days...mmmm. maybe we should come up with a new song???
