Central Church Of Christ Celebrates Announcement Of A Christian Tutorial Program Opening In The Fall

Friday, June 4, 2021

Central Church of Christ has announced the opening of a Christian tutorial school, a project that has been months in the making.

"For years, Chattanooga has been a leader in education, and the Central congregation is pleased to now add their program to the greater Chattanooga area," officials said.

With the program expected to open, educators are in demand for the 2021/22 school year. The school will be housed in the education wing of Central Church of Christ in Chattanooga at 400 Vine St.  

“We are extremely excited about the opening of a Christian Tutorial that will serve our current home school families, as well as the surrounding community,” said Chris Turner, who is leading the program.

“One of the best aspects of this opportunity is our ability to design the curriculum as well as the program from the ground up, exactly how we want it, based on the most current research on how students learn best.” 

The K-12 program is dispersed throughout multiple classrooms. It will embrace a Christian-based, child-centered philosophy taught by knowledgeable faculty and staff. Students that enroll in the program will be viewed as innovators and co-creators of their learning.

Indoor/outdoor classroom experiences will reflect student’s passions and interests and provide opportunities for hands-on exploration, investigation, collaboration and reflection. Core educational experiences lay the foundation in Elementary Math, Science, Literature, History and Bible, Middle School Math, Lab Science, Literature and Writing, History/Social Studies, High School Lab Science, Math, Literature, Spanish, History/Social Studies and Electives all reflecting core Christian values.

“This is an amazing opportunity to begin educating children and connecting with their families,” adds Dennis Terrill, an education committee member at the congregation. “With so many new companies and residential developments in the area, we recognize the need and are thrilled to be able to offer a high-quality educational experience for our growing community.”

The Christian tutorial is an umbrella opportunity to gain additional credits for an existing homeschool curriculum and not as an accredited school.
