What is the Patriot Pass?
FEAST is excited to begin a new school year, in a new location, with exciting changes. We value our FEAST families and one of the changes is with your family in mind. In 2020 we lowered the Patriot Pass Fee from $125 per family/per year to $75 per family/per year. We expect to no longer have the expense of a campus to maintain; therefore we are able to lower the cost of the pass!
The Patriot Pass Fee is still needed to help pay for general organizational administrative expenses, such as online registrations, maintaining the website, and payment of fees for the web-based programs.
The Patriot Pass is required for FEAST families to register for Athletics.

More about FEAST
FEAST has been helping home school 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!
Our support is accomplished through orientations, counseling, workshops, special events, 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, including baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, soccer, tennis, track & field, and volleyball.
The orchestration of these 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 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!

What is a Patriot Pass? Why is it required?
