About Us

Cactus Creek School is a homeschool enrichment program in the heart of Dickson, Tennessee. Our classes are conducted in nature's classroom on over 30 creek-side acres. Our homeschool tutorial fosters a true love of learning through providing a hands-on approach to learning by equipping academically, practically, and spiritually. 

Our school offers a foundation that extends beyond the traditional methods of confined classrooms and standardized tests. We believe in encouraging creativity, independence, and stewardship through hands-on experiences and connection with nature.


We believe in fostering  a love of our Father (Yahweh) through exploring his creation and encouraging open conversation about Yeshua (Jesus) and his desire for relationship in our lives.

We believe in nurturing the next generation through social-emotional learning, play, and the freedom to create. 

We encourage all ages to examine and discover the world around them, empowering them to make a difference for others. 


We believe that the entire Bible is true and is still applicable to our lives today. We will be teaching about God’s feasts and calendar as described in the old and new testaments.

Our curriculum is merged with and adapted to the changes of the seasons and includes Biblical concepts and stories that compliment and reinforce the lessons we learn in our studies.
