Portrait of a Graduate
A student attending CRCS should display the following:
A love for God: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.” Matt 22:37
A love for Others: “…and your neighbor as yourself.” Matt 22:39. CRCS students will learn to treat others the way they want to be treated. This includes exhibiting kindness toward fellow students, not withholding good from someone in need, having respect for their teachers and administrators, and caring for our school home.
A love for learning: A classical education taught in the hybrid model captures the attention and imagination of students in developmentally appropriate ways. This promotes independent learning and equips students for a lifetime of learning.
A value on personal responsibility: Students will learn that education is not merely for consumption but is meant to challenge them to do hard things and do them consistently, leading to success in their life’s work.
An ability to reason well: “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” -Aristotle
An emphasis on virtue and wisdom: The best education not only informs but also forms the student in the art of living well. The end goal of education is not career readiness or the ability to pass a test but personal formation.
A delight in beauty: Students learn to discern and love beauty as manifested in God’s creation.
A desire to engage society: Students learn to participate in, influence, shape, and serve their community with Christian graciousness.
