Common Core

The League of Christian schools has long defended the rights of schools to provide quality instruction and curriculum in a distinctly faith‐based program. It is our aim that each school develop good will within their community, that each school is noted for excellence in academic and extra‐curricular programs, and that each school cultivate a distinct spiritual culture and community of faith in Jesus Christ.

Many aspects of the Common Core standards as currently proposed are in direct opposition and indirect conflict to the instructional methodologies and biblical ideas of faith‐based schools. Additionally, it is firmly believed that the basis of the Common Core standards to no rise to the levels of academic rigor for which the League of Christian Schools has become known. Therefore, LCS rejects the Common Core as a basis for defining a quality education and advises all member and accredited schools to evaluate their adoption and use of the Common Core within a truly biblical framework.

“To whom will he teach knowledge, and to whom will he explain the message? Those who are weaned from the milk, those taken from the breast? For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.” – Isaiah 28:9 & 10
