WE BELIEVE IN. . .

Faith

We value all parts of the Body of Christ and encourage each family to be an active part of a local Bible-believing church.  We ask that all participating families agree with our Statement of Faith.  "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. . . ."

Proverbs 1:7     Proverbs 9:10     Psalms 111:10

 

Family
We recognize that the God-given task of education is given to the parents of each child, and we honor the parental role as primary educators.  We also believe that marriage was created to be a committed relationship representative of Christ and His bride (the Church).  

Deuteronomy 4:9-10     Deuteronomy 11:19     Ephesians 6:4     Ephesians 5:22-33

Community
We value community among our fellow believers.  The relationships between our families is more valuable than any structure, curriculum, or format we implement within our collaborative community; however, these may be changed to serve our community more effectively. (This community of homeschoolers does not exist to serve a format).  

John 15:12     John 17:20-26     Hebrews 10:24

Contribution
We believe that each family is unique and possesses special gifts that will enhance our community. 

1 Corinthians 12:12-27

 

Service
Those helping to tutor, organize, and serve are there to help facilitate the decisions and contribute to the plans of our community, but are not there to make decisions for the community.  

Matthew 20:25-28

Education
We value a biblically-based, classical education.  This style of education is based on the Trivium, the three-stage process of learning called “Grammar, Dialectic, & Rhetoric”: Grammar being the fact-based building blocks of learning; Dialectic being the “why”…the relationship between the fields of knowledge; and Rhetoric being the application and expression of knowledge and understanding.  This model recognizes that we develop naturally through these stages, and therefore, learning is best achieved when focused in this manner.


“Education is useless without the Bible.”

Noah Webster, Father of American Scholarship and Education.
