The Mason Lerro Memorial Scholarship was established in March 2018 in memory of Mason Lerro. Mason became a huge part of the HomeLife Academy family.  Phyllis Lerro (photo below) has been on staff with HLA for many years and part of the local homeschooling community for a lifetime it seems. Both of Mason’s parents have served our nation in the military. This scholarship is set aside for homeschooling families in the MILITARY and caring for a SPECIAL NEEDS child. Scholarships are awarded annually with a minimum scholarship amount of $250. Applications will be available soon but you can give in memory of Mason NOW. Please note on your donation IN HONOR OF MASON LERRO.

Deadline for Applications December 16!

If you are giving to the Mason Lerro Memorial Scholarship, please be sure to note that the donation is for Mason Lerro. If you would like to send an email with comments to the family, send it to

AND for every dollar donated, HomeLife Academy, will match dollar for dollar up to $2500 for 2019! It’s a great time to give!


Mason David Lerro was the little boy who LIVED.  From the time that he was in the womb until now he impacted, and continues to impact, the lives of the people who know his story.  Before birth, it was believed that Mason had a rare form of dwarfism that was lethal in 100% of all cases, and he was not expected to survive more than 15 minutes after his birth.  God had other plans.  Mason’s story is one that consists of a loving family, courage, strength, hope, the power of prayer, and the respect for the sanctity of life.  He had the fight of a wildcat, the heart of a lion, and a big smile that would brighten the darkest day.   Go here to read more of Mason’s story….
