Excellence in Education

Cary Christian School

At Cary Christian School, our mission is to provide an excellent classical education founded upon a biblical worldview. All subjects are taught as part of an integrated whole, with the Scriptures at the center, serving as the hub of all knowledge. As a result, students learn to interrelate and examine knowledge, allowing them to view their studies as a unified effort. The focus of this effort is to see God’s sovereignty over all and to glorify Him.

Curriculum is taught in a three-part educational process termed “The Trivium,” and each phase is dependent on the others. We aim to graduate young men and women who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding; who reason persuasively and articulate precisely; who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in the light of the Scriptures; and who do so with eagerness in joyful submission to God.

We desire them to recognize cultural influences as distinct from biblical and to be un-swayed toward evil by the former. We hope to find them well prepared in all situations, possessing both information and the knowledge of how to use it. We strive to cultivate in our parents a sense of responsibility for the school; to see them well informed about the goals of our classical and Christian approach.

We desire them to grow with the school, involved in and excited about the journey. We aim to help them to follow biblical principles in addressing concerns, to be inclined to hearing both sides of a story before rendering a verdict, and to embrace the Scripture’s injunctions to encourage and stir up one another to love and good works.

Chesterbrook Elementary & Middle School

When our children grow up, it will no longer be sufficient to have a strong language arts or math and science background. To be hired, our children will need, in addition to the basics, a new set of leadership skills that are not traditionally taught in schools — skills such as creativity, problem solving, advanced technology, collaboration and global awareness. These are the skills of tomorrow that we must begin teaching today.

Chesterbrook Elementary & Middle School is a school that is meeting this challenge head-on. Chesterbrook is a SACS-accredited school, celebrating 10 years of excellence in education. It focuses on 21st-century instruction, implementing lessons that are meaningful, project-based and connected to the real world. Daily activities involve extensive collaboration, opportunities to present in front of peers and adults while integrating different disciplines so that the transference of skills is embedded in areas of learning.

Project-based learning provides students the opportunity to video and teleconference, as well as blog and research with other middle school students within their network of schools across the country. These projects take what the students learn in the classroom beyond the walls of everyday academia. Learning Without Walls, Giving Without Walls and Intrigue Team projects lead to deeper subject matter discussion leading students to think more like experts in their field of study. Personalized learning is provided through a personal learning plan for each student combined with interactive instruction and personal use of technology. The plan focuses on the student’s academic, life and career, 21st-century skill and individual learning style goals.

The key to personalization is assessing the academic, social, emotional and behavioral needs of each student and using that information to deliver and adjust each student’s learning accordingly. The school will be hosting a Middle School Showcase on July 15 from 10 a.m.–2 p.m., to highlight its 10 years of academic excellence. Please contact Admissions Director, Tori Frausto, at Tori.Frausto@ NLCINC.COM for more information.
