Veritas Classical Education Tutoring for Homeschoolers

  1. 1. Communicate the Truth • Train the Mind • Cultivate the Heart Veritas Classical Homes Studies
  2. 2. Communicate the Truth • Train the Mind • Cultivate the Heart WHY HOMESCHOOL?
  3. 3. Communicate the Truth • Train the Mind • Cultivate the Heart Phone 310.993.3862 A SACRED TRUST AND RESPONSIBILITY FROM THE LORD • Prov. 22:6~ “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” • Psalm 127: Children=“Assigned gift” of God (v.3) • Deut. 11:19~ “And you shall teach them diligently to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” • Deut. 4:9~“Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren.” EVERYONE home schooled originally (Israelites did not send their children to the Canaanite Schools!)
  4. 4. Communicate the Truth • Train the Mind • Cultivate the Heart Phone 310.993.3862 WHAT IS A WORLDVIEW? Basic belief system (impacts how we live our lives and engage the world) Answers major questions in life such as: – Does God exist and is He Good? – What can be known for sure? – Who am I; why am I here; where am I going? – What do I value; what is important to me? – Is there purpose and direction to life? – What wrong with the world? – How does it get fixed?

  6. 6. Communicate the Truth • Train the Mind • Cultivate the Heart Phone 310.993.3862 "Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every American school is a school of humanism. What can a theistic Sunday school's meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children do to stem the tide of the five-day program of humanistic teaching?" "Humanism: A New Religion," by Charles F. Potter 1930 Why Homeschool? -Secular Humanism in Public Education
  7. 7. Communicate the Truth • Train the Mind • Cultivate the Heart Phone 310.993.3862 “…faith in the prayer-hearing God is an unproved and an outmoded faith. There is no God and there is no soul. Hence there is no need for the props of traditional religion. With dogma and creed excluded, then immutable truth is also dead and buried. There is no room for fixed, natural law, or moral absolutes.” “Teacher Magazine” by John Dewey Architect of Modern Education Why Homeschool? -Lack of God in Modern Education
  8. 8. Communicate the Truth • Train the Mind • Cultivate the Heart Phone 310.993.3862 "The battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: A religion of humanity -- utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to carry humanist values into wherever they teach. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new -- the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism." Humanist Magazine, “A New Religion for A New Age,” by John Dunphy (Jan/Feb, 1983) Why Homeschool? -Lack of God in Modern Education
