Lisa June Memorial Scholarship Fund

We are pleased to tell you about a new scholarship opportunity: the Lisa June Memorial Scholarship.

As many of you know, Lisa June passed away in 2021. Lisa was an Eagle’s Nest member who served our group in many roles over the years. She was a devoted follower of Christ who had a deep love for her family and friends and a passion for education. After Lisa’s passing, several families made donations to Eagle’s Nest to honor her memory, as suggested by her family.

After much prayer and consideration, we have decided to use those gifts to honor Lisa’s commitment to service and education by establishing a $500 scholarship for a graduating Eagle’s Nest student. Any Eagle’s Nest high school senior who is planning to attend college, vocational school, or some other form of post-secondary education is welcome to apply. We intend for the scholarship to be given to a student each year for as long as current and future donations to this scholarship fund make it possible.

One scholarship recipient per school year will be selected by the Eagle’s Nest Board of Directors, excluding any board members whose children are applying for the scholarship that year. The scholarship will go to a student who has shown exemplary conduct and character, and who has made a positive contribution to Eagle’s Nest over the years. The recommendations of EN tutors and leaders will be considered along with the content of the student’s application.

If your graduating senior is interested in applying for this year’s Lisa June Memorial Scholarship, please have the student complete the application and turn it in by May 1, 2023. 

Lisa blessed Eagle’s Nest families for many years as an educator, administrator, helper, and friend. If you would like to make a donation to this scholarship fund, please contact Kelli Yarbrough - EN Treasurer for details.

If you think your student may be eligible for this award, please keep a log of the volunteer activities, dates, and hours so we can determine eligibility.

Transcription Services

Parents of high school students may obtain a transcript accredited by the Georgia Accreditation Commission by working with our transcript counselor. While an accredited transcript is not required for homeschool graduation, many EN families find that it is helpful when applying for college, other post-secondary programs, scholarships, or jobs.

This optional service is available for an extra fee and with a signed agreement, and requires that parents and students complete all program requirements. Parents who do not wish to use this service may compile their student’s transcript on an independent track or use another transcript service.

Please contact our transcript counselor at [email protected] for more information.

2023 Test Information:

When is testing? Testing will be on Monday, May 15th and Tuesday, May 16th. High school students will test ONLY on Monday, and grades 2-8 will test both days. Approximate times are 8:30-4:00 on Monday and 12:00-4:00 on Tuesday. We will send out a finalized schedule closer to the test date. This is the Monday and Tuesday immediately after the last day of Eluminatus.

Where is testing? Testing will be at Crossroads Church in Newnan (2564 GA Hwy 154 Newnan, GA 30265).

Who can test with this group? Testing is open to homeschooled students in grades 2-12. Membership in Eagle’s Nest is not required to participate. Students enrolled in a public or private school are not eligible for this test.

Does my child have to take a standardized test? All homeschooled students in Georgia are required to take a standardized test at least every three years starting in grade 3. Some parents choose to have their children take a standardized test every year as a tool to help assess their progress.

What test are we using? We will be using the Iowa Test again this year (the ITBS). The Iowa Test is an academic achievement test to track your student’s progress, not a cognitive or IQ test, and it meets state homeschool testing requirements.

What is covered by the test fee? The test fee pays for the cost of the Iowa Test, the rental fee for use of the church facility, snacks, and supplies. The fee is $50 per student. If parents are unable to help during testing, an additional non-volunteer fee is added.

Why are parents required to help? We are ALL volunteers. EN testing is planned, administered, and supervised by parent volunteers. If you register for testing, you will be required to help with testing or pay an additional non-volunteer fee.

We will need certified test administrators! If you have at least a bachelor’s degree and would be willing to administer the test to a group of students, please let us know. There is no cost to register, and we will be happy to help you with the process.

Where do I turn in my registration? You can fill out the form through the link above or print the pdf at the other link above and mail your registration form and check to Amy Cox (169 Middlebury Ln. Newnan, GA 30265) or drop it in the Standardized Test folder at Eluminatus or Voyagers.
