Matthew 28:16-20

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Dear Prospective Family,

Thank you for your interest in CORE PREP. After many years of being asked to start a Christian School, by former students and parents, I wrestled with the Lord about this call on my life. I decided to talk with close family and friends, while seeking the Lord’s guidance. This call has now become a desire from the Holy Spirit, on my life, to reach the CORE of the family. In doing so, it will cause a profound difference that will echo in the hearts of all who are touched.

Choosing where your child attends school is one of the most important decisions you will make in their lives. A decision with possibly the most far-reaching effects.

At CORE PREP, we believe that God creates each child differently. They have a natural hunger for knowledge and the mind is fed by ideas, more than by facts and information. These ideas, which inform our conscience and the choices that we make, find their source in God Himself. They are communicated to us through His Word, through people of the past and present, and through His creation.

Education properly understood is not merely the absorption of data and skill. It is the mind feeding on ideas given through expression in God’s creation, great art, beautiful music, and “living books.” Real learning occurs when students engage with novelists, poets, philosophers, scientists, mathematicians, artists, musicians, historians, and explorers. They wonder, asking why and how.

Our aim is to train students in the habits of learning, so they can develop knowledge for themselves. It will also fuel their God-given hunger for ideas.
