This is our sixth year at The Cor Deo School (formerly First Presbyterian Church School) and we are thrilled with the quality of education, loving and sharp teachers, supportive family community, visionary leadership, challenging and well-rounded curriculum, and character development. Our child is not only learning facts and the standard elementary course of learning, but is also learning how to study, how to think (not just what to think), the importance of character, and the interconnectedness of all that he is learning. We couldn't ask for a better school for our child. We are now huge fans of the Christian classical model of education and would recommend the school to any family looking for a liberal arts-based, faith-based education for their child.

My kids have been at First Pres since Kindergarten. We have been very happy with the Christ centered approach to learning they recieve. The academics are rigorous and they score very well on their standard testing in the Spring. They love the specialists classes such as music, fine arts, and drama and I''m always amazed at the amount of knowledge they are gaining each year. I know they will be prepared for their next level of schooling and for the world in general.

Shootings, terrorist attacks, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, fire, and more are sadly commonplace happenings in the 21st-century. How prepared for the unthinkable is your school?
