    Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

    This year students in grades 9-12 will begin at the beginning:  Genesis!  Ours will not be simply a review of the events of the Old Testament, but much more than that; we will analyze the literary styles of the Hebrew Scriptures, examine the overall structures of Torah, and consider the meaning and message of several of the Old Testament books in their overall context in light of the fulfillment of the Old Covenant promises with the appearing of Jesus, Israel’s Messiah.  We hope to work our way through Genesis to Samuel.

    Freshmen and sophomores will explore the history of the United States with me this year.  We’ll be working at getting to the heart of what it means to be “American”, and along the way, investigate the idea of “American Exceptionalism” made popular more recently as well as honestly wrestle with the social/cultural challenges evident today which have their roots in our history.

    Juniors and seniors will be taking a tour of the history of western civilization this year, although we will be no means be neglecting the history of Africa and the Orient.  In fact, we’ll be surprised at the “globalization” which has shaped the last six or seven hundred years since Columbus discovered the “New World”, and we’ll be challenging the notion that western civilization is inherently more sophisticated than many of its rivals in Africa, Asia, or the Americas.  Eastern-Syriac Christianity, Charlemagne, potatoes, and moveable-type printing presses?  Welcome to the ride!

    Most juniors will be taking Algebra and Trigonometry this year.  In addition to a “Spring Project”, we hope to bring “real-world” applications into the study of mathematics in this course.

    Senior Projects!  There are two of them to supervise this year, and we anticipate a great program and resulting presentations later in April or May.

    Contact me if you are interested in completing a “work placement” this year as a means of extending your education and experience in the local business community. There are many options available!

    The PSAT is scheduled for Wednesday, October 17.  As Cornerstone’s Test Coordinator, I’m interested in students fully preparing for this test, and being properly equipped for writing the SAT in their junior or early senior year.  As staff liaison to the College and Careers Committee, I want to see our students reach their full academic potential.  Parents and students, feel free to arrange a visit with me to review post-secondary schools and scholarship possibilities.

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!
     
    This year I'll be bringing the 9-12 Bible course back around to a challenging look at the New Testament; we'll be surveying the
    historical and theological background to the New Testament, over viewing the 27 "books" of the New Testament, and then
    plunging into Matthew, James, and Acts (with Luke). 
     
    Grades 9 and 10 students will tour the globe with me in our World Geography course, and will begin taking on some exciting
    geography projects of their own.  
     
    Grades 11 and 12 will be studying the government of the United States at local, state, and federal levels, and after two years of fundraising,
    we will be anticipating a mid-May trip to the east coast, once again visiting Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, Gettysburg, and New York City. 
     
    Algebra 2 will again be offered this year; I look forward to preparing 11th grade students for their advanced math courses!
     
    Eleven seniors will be presenting senior projects this coming spring.  I'm really excited to see how these culminating
    projects will develop.  For many of us, these spring presentations attended by
    parents, mentors, and all juniors and seniors represent the crowning achievements of our senior's work.
    It's a great process in which to be involved!
     
    In addition to the above, I remain the work placement coordinator; I anticipate providing some structure and
    accountability to several work placements this year. 
     
    Bon Voyage!
