• What makes you different than the public schools?
There are three major differences.
The first difference is academic. We believe that our curriculum is more rigorous than the government schools and the results of that are reflected in our standardized test comparisons.
The second and more important difference is philosophical. We believe that we are in the role of assisting the parent to do their job of educating their child. We are not in charge of your child. Therefore, our system is designed to support the family and not the school system.
Third, and most important, is a spiritual difference. We believe that there can be no true education without Christ as the center. All of science, math, literature, and history, revolves around the sovereign God of the universe. A child who learns without God in their school environment learns to think that God is not necessary in their personal environment. To know God is the most important thing in any person’s life.
