Patriot Pass Overview
We value our FEAST families and understand the significance of your commitment to home-based education. FEAST strives to support your personal homeschooling journey of educating the whole child.
A Patriot Pass is your gateway to participation and play in FEAST programs. We offer friendly guidance, expertise, tools and direction in our Resource & Retreat Center, as well as physically active outlets, fellowship and team-environment opportunities with FEAST Athletics for middle- to high school-age homeschooled students. Additionally, FEAST offers many events, activities and opportunities to support you and your family! (Learn more below about additional benefits and discounts!)

FEAST (Family Educators Alliance of South Texas) has helped homeschool families for over 30 years!
We support families throughout their homeschooling journey: getting started on day one, navigating the road blocks, finding the tools and resources needed, and encouraging families to find success all the way through high school graduation. You CAN do it!
FEAST’s support to homeschooling families is accomplished through orientations, counseling, workshops, special events, athletics and customer service. Our co-op teaching program began 17 years ago and served hundreds of families each school year, but transitioned out from under the FEAST umbrella in 2019. One of our most exciting offerings is a well-known competitive sports program for middle and high school students, including baseball, basketball, cross country, football, soccer, track & field, and volleyball.
The orchestration of this variety of offerings is no small undertaking. From planning to scheduling to posting on the website and setting up online registrations, our staff works diligently to provide helpful and supportive resources for the homeschooling community.
It is not enough to offer these services now and/or until our children graduate, but for generations to come. When our homeschooled children grow up and want to homeschool their children, we pray that FEAST will still be here, standing strong, and supporting a new generation’s home education goals!
