Marie Eliades and her husband, Peter, homeschooled their three children, graduating all of them from highschool at an early age. Their oldest went directly from homeschool into UC Berkeley at age 16 with an entirely home-developed transcript. The other two children combined homeschool and early enrollment in community college during their junior high and high school years and then transferred into UC colleges as juniors at age 17. Mrs. Eliades earned her M.A. in clinical psychology at Antioch University and a diploma in Orthodox Christian Studies at St. Athanasius Academy of Orthodox Theology. She has published five books as Zoë Press including Orthodox Christian Parenting: Cultivating God's Creation.
