Organizers are pleased to announce the establishment of "Normantown Christian: One School Under God."
The school is an alternative to deteriorating public school morals and consolidation plans, the school will host grades K-6 its first year, and add one grade each year thereafter, up to 12th grade.
Though Christian in faith, the school will not teach Bible classes nor specific doctrines of any denomination.
A general Christian atmosphere will be fostered through character education, along with a morning and midday prayer.
The curriculum of choice, A Beka, also nurtures Bible-based facts throughout its textbooks.
At present, Normantown Christian has two teachers/school coordinators and one volunteer teaching assistant representing three local congregations.
Terri Thomas, of Steer Creek Church of Christ, Michelle Minney, of Crooked Run Community Church, and Karen Kuhl, of Hardman Fork Baptist Church.
Once enrollment numbers are finalized, more teachers and volunteers will be added as necessary.
Besides advancing students in academics through individual attention, life-skill lessons such as gardening, sewing, cooking, and building are in the works.
Normantown Christian seeks to prepare a generation of individuals, who are not only able to obtain college degrees, but also raise a garden, cook their own food, fix things when they break and work on basic building projects.
Normantown Christian will be housed in the Steer Creek Church of Christ facility 3.5 miles up Rosedale Road, near Stumptown.
The school is scheduled to open in August 2016 and will serve regional counties.
