The University-Model offers a high-quality, college-preparatory education in a context that emphasizes discipleship, worldview instruction, and character formation. The immediate goal is quality, cost-effective, college-preparatory education accomplished in a way that gives parents more time for imparting the faith and values they hold precious. The University-Model is a five-day academic program with students spending 3 days in the central classroom and 2 days in their “satellite classroom” at home. Both classrooms are under the supervision of the professional educator. In a UMS, secondary students take challenging age-appropriate courses of study that are set in a university-type scheduling of classes—3 days a week. Outside of class, the students work to develop sound study habits and the kind of strong work ethic they will need for success in college. This is assured because of the attention paid to an essential ingredient that the US Dept of Education repeatedly affirms as a proven difference-maker in any child’s education: meaningful and wise parental mentoring. The teachers provide all direct instruction in the central classroom, and they encourage and expect students to learn the material assigned through independent practice and homework. Teachers also provide consistent feedback to students and parents regarding the progress in each class. In partnership with one another, parents and the school work together toward a mutual and ultimate goal: to produce wholesome, competent, and virtuous followers of Christ who will change the world in their generation.
