Class of 2019 having fun!
Get to know the graduates!
Homeschooling has allowed me to grow and explore throughout my different stages in life so far. I am grateful for the education and teaching I have received that has prepared me for my own journey through life. From my earliest years I had the opportunity to study music through piano, voice, and a few other instruments which have become one of my greatest passions. I hope to continue studying music after I graduate and find a career that employs what I love – glorifying God through the gifts he has given me. I know that my path has already been carefully planned and laid out, and all I must do now is go live out what he created me to be and to become.
Gabriel Cline has always had a love for everything to do with nature. This has led to him doing 4 projects that help the environment for a prestigious Boy Scout award called the Hornaday Award. It also led to his three years of beekeeping experience. His desire is to find a career that will involve animal rehabilitation or environmental restoration or preservation.
I’m so thankful to have been homeschooled my entire life and I look forward to the new adventures following graduation! I plan to pursue a degree in English starting with online courses.
Michelle Marie Dancoisne
I have been homeschooled for 13 years and I am very grateful for all the opportunities it has given me and for the commitment and sacrifice my parents have made for my education. My goals for the future are to work hard academically and to improve my artistic skills and techniques, while growing and deepening my faith in Christ. I plan to attend Sierra Community College for two years and then transfer to a four-year university to earn my bachelor's degree, and possibly a master's degree. I intend to study design and take courses in business and marketing as well. I plan to be diligent and try my best to graduate college with honors, as I have done in high school.
Grace Meraiah DiSilvestro
Hey! My name is Grace DiSilvestro. This upcoming fall I plan to attend Azusa Pacific University and major in Social Work. My goal is to counsel children in the foster system and to help them find a safe home. I have loved playing volleyball all throughout high school and have learned so much during my high school years. I can’t wait to be independent and begin this next chapter of my life. Much love to my family and friends. I couldn’t have done this without their support.
Jeremiah Richard Keller
Hello my name is Jeremiah Richard Keller. I am the second youngest in my family. I have nine sisters and four brothers and I am an uncle of twenty-one nephews and nieces. My hobbies include Soccer, basketball, volleyball, Xbox, and driving my truck. And despite working for my dad for 10 years, as it is a family run business, I still found time to pursue my education. Growing up I learned many things from my choir and drama class, mostly about the value of friendship, humor, and exaggerations. But the lessons from my father, though definitely harder ones, are the ones that I treasure the most. He has taught me the worth of a dollar, the satisfaction of coming home after a long day of work to take off my boots, and the strength that comes from admitting your weaknesses. I have learned and grown so much as a person and a Christian by watching the lives of my family. They are all amazing, not only have i learned so much from my family but also my friends they have helped keep me sane and I've learned so much from them. I wouldn't be the man I am today if it wasn't for God, Family and Friends. There are a lot of things I want to accomplish in my life, but for now I'm waiting on the Lord.
I have had the great privilege of being homeschooled since I was four years old. Being homeschooled has allowed me to do things that I may not have been able to do otherwise, like SCOPE field trips to the FBI and In-N-Out as well as sports such as volleyball, basketball, and even an Eco Challenge. I'm grateful to the people who saw the need and created SCOPE and homeschool sports organizations like West Coast Impact in CA and THESA in TX. With my THESA volleyball team, I was able to experience the State and National Tournaments last season. I'm especially grateful to my parents for taking me on this amazing homeschooling journey, even though I was not the easiest student. Through this journey I have made many lifelong friends. Now that graduation is here, I look forward to the future where I plan to earn a degree in social work through Lumerit to eventually work with foster children.
Hello, I am Caleb. I am thrilled to be a part of the Scope Graduating Class of 2019. Homeschooling has cultivated my academic potential, given me amazing friendships, and drawn me closer to God. Next year, I will attend Bethlehem College in Minnesota, to pursue a degree in Biblical and Theological Studies. I am excited for what God has in store in the future, and grateful for everyone who helped me along my homeschooling journey.
Graduating High School, for me, will be one step closer to becoming a Veterinarian; which has been my dream since I was five. To make my dream a reality, my plans after High school are to attend a college, and afterwards a medical school. My life has been, is, and always will be led by God. My future is in the hands of my Creator. Although I have a plan, I fully trust that whatever happens, wherever I end up, is the way God intended it to be
And so my education moves from high school to college, the latter being Folsom Lake Community College. From there, who knows? Until that time comes, I'll continue my random assortment of theater, writing, playing video games, and all around messing with my pet chickens. I may even get back into my sports of spelunking and parkour.
I have always been intrigued by observing and studying the interactions of all life forms within our environment. In this way, I have come to realize that I should spend my life studying how the environment works and how we can preserve it in the balanced form that God created it. I will be continuing my education at a private Christian university pursuing a degree and career in Environmental Science.
