Donny & Sandy
Bayside grew out of our personal experiences. In 1988 we nervously jumped into homeschooling when our two oldest, Emily and Donald, went away to UNCCH and the North Carolina School of Science and Math, respectively.
Actually, Donny was nervous but supportive, while Sandy was confident. We had been parochial and traditional school faithful, but the local elementary school was distant geographically and merely adequate academically, so we took the plunge and followed Sandy's dream to teach the boys at home.
Stephen, then nine years old, summed up their feelings to his next younger brother. "Andrew, we are going to go to school and then come home and Mom will teach us!" He could not believe they would not have to "go" to school again. Surprise!
Both excelled, graduated, and together attended College of the Albemarle, our closest community college, for two years (Andrew for three because he wanted to take more courses). They transferred to UNCCH, following the lead of both older siblings. At Carolina each received unrequested scholarships and Andrew was tapped for Phi Beta Kappa as a junior.
Last on our roster was homeschooled from birth Lewis, who in 2000 made the choice of public school for his three high school years so he could play basketball. This time it was Sandy who was nervous, but she had underestimated the great foundation her teaching had laid. Lewis thrived and, among many honors, was nominated as Manteo High's Morehead Scholarship candidate. Although he was not selected by the committee, UNCCH did, and he both attended and graduated.
Our five great kids, all of them Carolina graduates. And three from a homeschool education. It works!
