KEALEI CASTLE, DIRECTOR

Mrs. Kealei Castle received the vision for the ministry of Trinity Homeschool in May of 2005.  God blessed her obedience to step out in faith by providing a building in July.  The doors opened with nearly 100 students in late August.   Trinity Homeschool now serves over 230 children.  Mrs. Kealei would say she began this ministry in response to a call from God to support others in the education of their children. She strongly believes homeschooling her own four children these last 15 years and assisting others in their journey is an incredible privilege.  She has been truly blessed in the process.  Three of Kealei’s children are now attending college while the other one is a high school student attending THD/Hearts Academy.

EDUCATION:  Graduate of University of NE-Lincoln with Bachelors of Science degree with a major in Interior Design.

EXPERIENCE: Owned and operated Castle Interiors for ten years before selling business to homeschool her children;  17 years teaching experience and training to homeschool her own children and numerous others; Ordained through Bible Times Ministry and co-pastors Hearts on Fire Ministries with husband, Jim Castle.

FAMILY:  Married 25 years; 4 children Luke, Kaila, Brittany, and Kaitlyn

THD enables parents the opportunity to maintain control of their child’s education, while receiving accountability, a great classroom experience, and a myriad of enrichment and social opportunities. This is accomplished with the faithfulness, commitment,  and excellence of the tutors partnering with the dedicated parents of these students.   Some of her future goals for the school:

  1. To offer more and improved technology-based classes,  academic, athletics, and social opportunities to the youth of our community.

  2. To statistically prove the success of the program in order to affect positive change in the public school system.

  3. To add family and student counseling and support programs for those that cannot otherwise afford it.

  4. To support other like-minded people to create similar programs in their communities

  5. To find funding, grants, etc. To achieve our goal of being debt free.

BONNIE GRAY, CO-DIRECTOR

Mrs. Bonnie Gray has been working at THD as the Co-Director ever since the school began in 2005. Her role is to order books, plan parties, and make sure the students are staying to task. This is a big job, since enrollment has increased dramatically since the program began. One big difference from last year to this year is a more flexible schedule, which has allowed her more time with her own children. Mrs. Bonnie loves working at the THD/Hearts Academy because she gets to be involved with her kids’ education, plus she gets to be with the other students too. When not at the THD/Hearts Academy, Mrs. Bonnie like gardening, reading, and decorating in her free time.
