1. the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university. (www.dictionary.com)
In this case, even the definition is boring. We Americans would all agree children should receive an education. But we might all differ on how we would define a “good” education. There’s a huge range between adequate and exceptional. These past five weeks of being a forced semi-home educator have made me feel even more strongly that if my children are all going to spend so much of their childhood in school, it better be a lot more than adequate.
2. an enlightening experience. (www.dictionary.com)
This second meaning is essential to the first. My children deserve to be enlightened. They have been created by a God who delights in variety and beauty and wonder. If their education includes that God, then their learning can certainly not exclude His qualities.
Cornerstone Christian and her families have worked this last year toward getting the Cornerstone name out into our community. Some great strides have been made in this direction. As we move forward ideally, we will have more opportunities to show what we’re about. By the very nature of our name, people will know that Christian teaching is the Cornerstone of who we are. We utilize an old and proven curriculum with Abeka. Our families all hold to traditional Christian values. We have an exceptional school.
Families grow and change and come and go through our doors for various reasons. We are thankful to be a part of their lives and a blessing to them for a time. Those families will always be a part of Cornerstone. We are grateful for the good words and support as you have occasion to tell others about the truly exceptional education your child receives at CCS.
