If so, I could use some ideas. We've been trying to come up with something for a couple of yrs now.

Thanks!

I call ours "Accelero Academy". I know a lot of people who call theirs "(last name) Academy" or something like that. You don't really need a name unless you're trying to get teacher discounts somewhere or something like that.

Well, upon doing some online searching I guess maybe I'll go with her other choice "Freedom" and maybe go with Academy after all. "Freedom Academy" sounds good to me. I'll run it by everyone else and see if they agree.

Well, I have to name ours and soon. It's required in our state to do so when registering and DS becomes "of age" for registering right before we move. if we stay away it won't matter but if it doesn't work out that way and we move back in a few years, the children will be stuck with whatever I pick in the next month through graduation.

We named our school because the leader of our homeschool group does school ID's for us every year so we can get our school discounts (and our yearly school pictures). We did the boring last name Learning Academy for lack of any idea! If the kids want to change it when they get older we will.

I like the sound of Freedom Academy! We haven't named ours, but I've been considering it.

We named our school Saint Ambrose Academy. He is the patron saint of Learning.

I love the way that sounds. Freedom Academy is great, too.

I'm still waiting for my own bolt of inspiration to strike me.

DH and I have come up with a few names but nothing is set in stone. We were thinking of possibly "Orgrimmar Academy" or "Stormwind Elites". I am sure by the time DS is old enough for "school" then maybe something else will seem better.

Ours is: Y.A.M.S.

(Last name starts with Y) Academy of Manifold Studies

We came up with it just for fun. It's great to see the look on people's faces when they ask where our kids go to school.
