When considering the educational experience of our students, we begin with the end in mind. Our Christian classical education is designed to educate the whole child, cultivating wisdom and virtue by emphasizing truth, beauty and goodness in the teaching process. Our instruction methods are carefully chosen and consist of time-honored educational practices, allowing us to create a well-rounded academic foundation for each student.
What an exciting time to be part of our community! The Cor Deo School currently offers a robust K– 8th grade Classical Christian Liberal Arts education on two campuses.
The name “Cor Deo” is the Latin phrase meaning “heart for God.” It fits with our central focus of cultivating a deep faith in Christ and our desire to equip students to graciously engage and influence their world. Throughout their education at The Cor Deo School, students will come to understand God’s heart for them and for his world. They will hear God’s heartbeat in all that they learn.
For two consecutive years, readers of South Sound Magazine have recognized First Presbyterian Church School as the “Best Private Elementary School in the South Sound” (2014 & 2015). The Cor Deo School seeks to build on that momentum since the FPCS elementary level became its own school in 2017.
