An education that's relational will be one in which students thrive. Why? Because the environment and approach welcome them into the learning experience.
This is not education as usual — it is an immerse-yourself, creative, memorable discovery and exploration for all types of subjects. Students who experience this kind of learning become self-motivated and deeply engaged learners.
Fosters the Parent-Child Relationship
The educational environment includes the parent-to-child relationship, where parents:
- Enjoy—even like—their children;
- Honor how God has designed their children, they way they’ve been wired to learn;
- Respect their children, and appreciate the pace at which they develop and grow; and
- Understand the process of learning requires patience, flexibility, and repetition.
Multidisciplinary Approach to Education
Our homeschooling approach includes the student-to-material relationship, where students:
- Make connections between what they know and what they are learning;
- Engage actively, not passively, in their own learning experience;
- Engage creatively, not content to stay at a superficial level in learning; and
- Develop critical and creative thinking skills over time.
Biblical Worldview in History
For Christian families studying history, this includes the person-to-God relationship:
- Discovering God’s faithfulness in history;
- Making personal application to one’s own life;
- Increasingly motivated to “Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God.” (William Carey)
