Marketplace Mission Learning Center opened to five students in August 2011. Our one room school offers 185 online courses grades 3-12 from Alpha Omega Publications with the teacher-in-the-classroom. Currently, we have six full time students (grades 5, 7, 7, 8, 9 and 9), a part time senior who will graduate May 28th, a part time 10th grader and a part time junior who is currently enrolled in the Dual Enrollment program at Florida SouthWestern State College taking college classes. We also have six homeschool teachers and their students using our online courses. Click here for a complete curriculum catalog.

Seven students and one teacher share 760 square feet in two classrooms. Most school days we may use a 5,800 square foot hall and a 400 square foot kitchen. Our WiFi covers our classrooms, the kitchen, Disseler Hall and some of the surrounding grounds outside our building.
Across the hall from our small classroom door is the church kitchen where we have filled the the kitchen and Disseler Hall with the aromas from homemade salsa, homemade bread, chili and homemade pizza. We have fed a large womens’ group homemade pizzas and chilli and provided bread for several church receptions. We have held two graduations (2012 and 2013) with 50 people in attendance and served food after each graduation ceremony. Except for two mornings a week the hall is ours to use and at least once a week we are in the kitchen.
An Art class taught by Mr. Horton, an artist, meets once a week for two hours. The Art Project Table sits in the center of our classroom and is project ready. The fully stocked art table in the center of the classroom is always ready for acrylic and watercolor art projects.
