We are a Collaborative School
We are a genuine school/home collaboration, where students receive the option of professional instruction on campus two to three days per week and work at home under the tutelage of their parents for the balance of the week allowing the family to be the primary influence on the child’s life.
Kuyper’s collaborative approach to education, founded in the conviction that parents have the primary responsibility for their children’s education, creates a true parent-teacher partnership. A Kuyper education requires a level of parental involvement second only to full-time homeschooling. All of the material is taught initially in the classroom by highly qualified instructors. Students then complete work on their at-home days with the supervision and support of their parents. Parents are able to reinforce the concepts, extend and enrich the content being studied, and make sure each student is fully prepared each day. This fulfills the charge given in Deuteronomy 6 to instruct children, “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.”
