Quite literally, the best education in the area. Cor Deo is the fertile soil in which our children are nurtured to flourish and mature. The easiest cheque that I write each month is the tuition for Cor Deo!

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.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
