Why the Great Books of the Judeo-Christian Western tradition? 

               While other cultural studies are important, we are limited in time and energy during high school.  We cannot study everything there is to know, so we must necessarily limit.  Western Civilization, with its root of Judeo-Christian culture, is our Christian and American heritage and therefore our focus for high school.
               Your student has this unique opportunity to receive a quality classical education based on a scriptural worldview, Great Books of the Judeo-Christian Western civilization, Francis Schaeffer books, and primary source documents.  We use Cornerstone Curriculum for our world view studies.  These feature the “best of the best” for each time period.  In addition, all study is mentored learning with Socratic discussions.  This allows for a safe forum to discuss challenging current events or difficult concepts with encouraging and supportive peers.
               Our aim is for students to claim their Christian faith and educational goals to produce a satisfying sense of accomplishment.  But more importantly, the goal is for students to express their faith as they assess ideas and communicate them using rhetoric skills in a winsome and engaging way to a culture that sorely needs Christ’s redeeming effects.
               Students may not get this opportunity to have a Great Books education from a Christian perspective in college.  Now is the time!  Christ changed the world and we want our students to see and experience His world-changing influence and to empower them for life in the 21st century.
Cornerstone Tutorials’ World Views courses constitute a four-year, integrated and comprehensive high school course of study which grants 18 ½ Carnegie units when completed.  Each year is equivalent to at least three to five high school classes!  For more information on class credits, click here.
