Intown’s philosophy of education is based on the practices of Charlotte Mason who believed that children are born persons and that we must educate that whole person – not just the child’s mind. Our K-8 model allows Middle School students to become caring leaders as they participate in student government and shepherd our young children.
We seek to equip students not only with the necessary skills and abilities to move from subject-to-subject and grade-to-grade, but to instill a sense of wonder and exploration about the beauty of what God has created that will transform them into lifelong learners. Academic achievement and achieving an appreciation for the source of true life – Jesus Christ – are not mutually exclusive. We nurture students’ curiosity about God’s world with a curriculum rich in literature, original sources, hands-on experiences, and in-depth study designed to promote critical thinking. Despite our deliberate minimal emphasis on test preparation, Intown students consistently outperform students at area schools on standardized tests.
