We took a similar approach. We live at the confluence of 3 creeks. Our homeschool is The Confluence School. My DH is an artist/musician. I do birthwork and yoga, and we are homesteading on a sustainable farm. We are also a location for the first biodiesel operation in the area that was started by a dear friend. We give tours of our place to colleges and folks who are interested. (Princeton was here this year!) We have a vision of offering retreats and workshops here at some point in a variety of subjects.
So, we are a school per se. And as the adults working from our location go out and about to spread the word, we refer to our home as The Confluence. It's easier and it is a running together of individual interests. I thought it a nice fit for our schooling to be a part of it too. I'm not sure that the state requires a name. I think they might. I haven't had to file anything yet. We are just in K. But, we named it for fun.
Oh, and part of me is hoping for another family to eventually establish here too with children in similar age range. Right now, we are the only married couple working on any Confluence projects. I'd love to team homeschool with another family and have our name. Dreaming...
There are only 3 cabins occupied in our space.
