Are you wondering how you’ll teach those difficult courses to your high schooler? Hear about the benefits of academic assistance programs from Pillar Foundation Director Michael Cordner, on today’s Home School Heartbeat with Michael Farris.
My guests this week, on Home School Heartbeat, are Mike and Sharon Cordner of the Pillar Foundation in St. Louis, Missouri. I recently visited their really innovative program there and have invited them here today to talk to you about their exciting program for homeschoolers. Mike Cordner, welcome to the program.
Thank you very much.
Please tell us, just in general, about your program for homeschoolers at the Pillar Foundation.
Okay, the whole purpose of the Pillar Foundation is to augment courses or classes for homeschooled students that are senior highschool students. We offer these courses free of charge and they’re basically centered around courses that a lot of parents might find a little hard to teach. We do classical languages, we also teach worldview courses, American Christian history. We’ve found that a lot of treatment of American history was, while being called Christian is Christian in name only. We want to take it right back to its very very Christian roots. So, in general, the basic purpose is to train young people with a sound Christian worldview and all of the things that go along with it. Which includes how to articulate themselves, which includes public speaking, debate, etiquette, and courses like that so that they can become Christian leaders of the future.
Join us again tomorrow, I’m Mike Farris.
