Statement of Instructional Quality
The primary purpose of CCS is to support parents in the enculturation of disciples. This is accomplished by leveraging instructional quality within the context of discipleship. Therefore the continual journey of building instructional quality is of the most essential importance. For us, instructional quality is defined as the relationship between the teacher and the student in the presence of content. Our belief of building instructional quality is focused on improving “instructional theory” and not “learning theory”. Essentially we are a content driven institution and not a learner driven institution. Practically, this is evident in the primary question that drives improvement: “how do we improve instruction” and not “how do we improve learning”.

Relational credibility in the classroom
Statement of the Liberal Arts
