Live, Learn, Lead!
To provide a curriculum that inspires a love of learning for life
To inspire good stewardship by caring for their body, their relationships and the world we live in and all we have all been given.
To support parents in building Godly Character in their children – which will make the world a better place for life.
Our mission, to quote Charlotte Mason originator of our curriculum, is to "provide a ‘living education’, where each child is guided and empowered to author a full and free life; a life rich in relationship to God, self, others, ideas, and all of creation. Thus, our primary concern is the kind of student each child is becoming, not the mastery of particular data or technique, for we are confident that the student who masters the art of learning will attain his or her full potential for mastering data and technique. Students who master the art of relating well to God, self, others, ideas, and creation will attain the fullness of life for which they were created"
We believe that every child should have access to learn in an environment that is safe.
Safe from harmful food substances
Safe from bullying
Safe from judgement and shaming
Safe from fundamental extremism (political, ideological, religious, philosophical, or nutritional)
Safe from manipulation, abuse, and control
Safe to develop true Godly character
Safe to grow in accountability and responsibility
Safe to not be compared to others for the sake of finding or naming the best
Safe to grow and love and learn about things that matter like music and maths, art and architecture, poetry and permaculture, nature and nutrition, history and heaven, creatures and creation, geography and Genghis Khan, biology and the Bible, life skills and love, exercise and entrepreneurship.
Safe to move and get physically healthy and strong without being judged for your body type.
In other words;
Safe to be their best selves and prepared to be successful in the real world!
Successful spiritually and in relationships, in finances, business, work, study, and in anything they put their hand to.
To this end, we use the
A Charlotte Mason and Dr. Maria Montesorri and Finnish inspired curriculum in our pre- & primary school and the same principles with an online program for high school, culminating in an internationally recognized qualification. The General Education Diploma or GED - which is an internationally accepted school leaving certificate recognized by 85 countries around the world, including the USA and is approved by SAQA (South African Qualification Assurance) as an NQF4 qualification, the same as the Matric Certificate.
A Nutritional Program based on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (www.pcrm.org).
Character building based on Biblical and family values.
Inspired by the success of the Finnish educational system offering 3 exit routes for our senior students:
(1) the ability to start your own business or work and be an asset to an employer,
(2) to attend a TVET (Technical and Vocational & Educational college from grade 8) or
(3) to attend a private or government university.
We encourage our school leavers to find the thing they love and to do that - not to chase a higher qualification to impress anyone. To study further only because its what is best for them. We work together with our parents to find the best choice.
