To glorify God by supporting and equipping homeschooling families.
To enhance the education, discipleship and training of our children through the partnership of our families and tutors utilizing a classical education philosophy, and to encourage each other through Biblical fellowship as we endeavor to serve our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Why was Unitas formed?
- Unitas is ultimately a group of like-minded homeschooling families intent on providing our children the best education possible in an atmosphere that promotes lifelong learning. For each of us to attempt this on our own makes for a tremendous workload.
- Unitas began as a means of sharing some of that work and encouraging one another. By joining together, we are able to bring tutors in who have a love for teaching and a passion for their subject area. The only paid positions at Unitas are the tutor positions.
- Unitas is built on volunteer effort. Each family in the cooperative plays a vital role and brings its own unique gifts and abilities to the effort. No gift or task is considered small or insignificant. The cooperative as a whole benefits from the time that we all invest.
- Unitas was designed with the understanding that God is our leader. Each family’s prayers are valuable. The ultimate goal of training God-honoring children can only be achieved as we work and pray together under the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit.
- Unitas believes that Integrity, Obedience, Brotherly-Kindness, and Honesty are to be valuable standards that we live out and teach to our children daily.
- Integrity of lifestyle and work habits are to be modeled in and out of the classroom. A practical application of this is asking the children to work diligently, “serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men.” (Eph. 6:7)
- Obedience is without a doubt what God asks of His children; therefore we ask this of all our students at Unitas. Obedience is necessary for harmony and peace in our lives and in the classroom. “Obey your leaders and submit to their authority.” (Heb. 13.17)
- Brotherly-Kindness reaches to all aspects of our lives, including the academic. Jesus made it clear that we are to love our neighbors as ourselves. (Mark 12:31) We see this reaching from interaction in the classroom between students to the Christian worldview that we strive to teach at Unitas. Not only are we to serve each other, but we are to care for each other. This includes the protection of His creation, including human life. Unitas believes that all of God’s creation is for His glory and we will strive to model and teach that to our students.
- Honesty is how we live out God’s truth in our lives. In every situation, we expect Unitas to be represented with truthfulness. "Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body.” (Eph. 4:25)
