About Us


Level Up Educational Academy, a registered 501(c)(3) Educational Non-Profit organization, was founded on the Biblical values and unashamedly operates as a Christian program supporting homeschool families, centered on Christ and His unchanging Word, THE BIBLE.

We provide the following to homeschooling families:

  • Supplemental to Primary Education at home:

    • ​Level Up is a supplemental Tutor-led drop-off program for individual homeschooling families. We do not replace primary education, provided by YOU, the parent.

    • Classes strive to maintain a Biblical Worldview while providing excellent academic education. 

  • We believe:

    • In the Trinity: God the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit.

    • Jesus Christ is the Son of God & there is no other name by which one can be saved through the work of grace achieved by His crucifixion and resurrection.

  • Level Up encourages education in conjunction with the Bible, applying scripture throughout our subjects & classes, praying, worshipping, & building Christ-centered character & community.

Our History

Robin Website Pic.jpg

Level Up (formerly Shanan Classical) was founded by Robin Hancock in 1995 - and originally just a co-op where parents work together for the benefit of all the students in the co-op. But as our students grew older, there was a realization that the benefits of group learning while maintaining control as homeschool parents was absolutely needed. Thus, the development of Tutorials came to be and began with British Literature and Personal Finance in 1998. Now, nearly 30 years later, we have expanded into a full spectrum of courses offered, focusing on the core subjects necessary for high school graduation and college entrance — math, science, and English — as well as a full range of courses and elective subjects.

This program was originally started to meet the personal needs of a few families, but has now grown to being utilized by many homeschool families in the Greater Southern Charlotte, Union County, and Indian Land, SC areas.

While our program continues to grow, our long-term goals are not to become large so we remain personal in nature while committed to a challenging, yet supportive, environment for all participating students in which provides an excellent academic foundation along with an enriching and thriving community for students (and their families) to engage in. For Tutorials alone, we are dedicated to bringing excellent and dedicated Tutors into our program that enjoy teaching and sharing with young people, and who bring to these students their enthusiasm, experience, and knowledge.
