Portrait of a Graduate

What Can You Expect from a Courage Education?

We call it our "portrait of a graduate. " It answers the question "what is a Courage education designed to do?"

As a parent, we invite you to rise with us as we equip students as faith-filled, biblical thinkers who pursue Christian character, communicate confidently, innovate purposefully, and live courageously as tomorrow’s leaders.

What does this important mean?

Our method of education is designed to raise your children to be faith-filled.

Nothing will be impossible to you, Matthew 17.20

With the understanding that there is nothing that is separate from God’s providence, your children are able to follow God’s plans and purposes for their lives with hearts yielded to the authority of Jesus Christ. They recognize God’s connection with their lives and recognize their reciprocal connection to God; students acknowledge that both connections work in tandem to create lifelong stability.

Faithful – Firm in adherence to the truth and to the duties of religion.

Our method of education is designed to raise your children to reason rightly and apply biblical thinking.

Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. Joshua 1.8

Your children learn to think creatively to be problem solvers and thoughtfully defend reasoned positions. With a high level of social, emotional intelligence, students can discern truth and meaningfully engage in persuasive discussions. Students understand the character and nature of God, while understanding the condition of man. As your children mature in their handling of the Word  of God, they learn to apply biblical principles to every area of their lives.

Reason – A faculty of the mind by which it distinguishes truth from falsehood, and good from evil, and which enables the possessor to deduce inferences from facts or from propositions.

Apply – To fix the mind; to engage and employ with attention.

But we urge you… to excel still more. 1 Thessalonians 4.10

Excellence – in persons, any thing highly laudable, meritorious or virtuous.

Character – By way of eminence, distinguished or good qualities; those which are esteemed and respected.

Honor – Reputation; good name; distinction; True nobleness of mind.

Our method of education is designed to teach your child how to confidently communicate and purposefully innovate.

But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3.15

‘Through a Courage education, students learn to search original sources. They are inquisitive and desire to understand not just what but why. With God’s Word as the center of all knowledge, they learn to view the world through that lens. They learn to see God in everything and to rely on Him to point to Truth. They are biblical thinkers and spiritually minded. They are grounded with a strong foundation of biblical knowledge and learn to articulate truth in writing and speech. This gives them a confident readiness as faith defenders and enables them to share the Gospel. They take initiative and live purposefully to fulfill the plans God has for them wherever they go.

Communicate – To impart, as knowledge; to reveal; to give, as information, either by words, signs or signals; to deliver.

Innovate – To bring in something new.

Our method of education is designed to inspire your children to live courageously as tomorrow's leaders.

Proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. Leviticus 25.10

We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us, a.
2 Corinthians 5:20a

Through the story of America, the world has seen the greatest expression of liberty for the individual, both spiritually and in the civic and therefore, economic realms. The gospel has advanced more freely in America than any other nation and has enabled the gospel to move around the world as never before. Simultaneously and consequentially, the individual has had the highest level of civic freedom and economic opportunity. Courage students understand that self-governance and virtue are required for this kind of liberty to endure. They learn history by studying original and primary sources and view it providentially as God moving people and nations for His plans and purposes. In doing so, students learn that God has a plan for them and their lives, which enables them to live with courage and possess an enterprising mind to create, serve, and lead.

Courageously – With courage; bravely; boldly; stoutly.

Leader – A guide; a chief; a commander; a captain. One who goes first.
