COVID-19 Prevention and Control – 12/18/20 Parent Update


Dear parents, I write this update with an overflowing, grateful heart to the Lord and to each of you. We are finishing up this half of the year with a healthy CBA family (teachers, students, parents, and grandparents). Only three classes quarantined for 5-6 days this fall. The surprising fact is we missed more school the last 4 autumns due to hurricanes than we did this fall due to COVID. The CBA teachers are my heroes. They have made this school an oasis of joy in the middle of a pandemic. If you could see behind the scenes, they come joyfully to [...]

COVID-19 Prevention and Control – 11/13 Parent Update


Dear amazing parents, Here is a quick video update. It has been an eventful week. We had a family stay out of school and then found out their child had strep, another family was out due to the flu, and another due to a cold. I am grateful for the cautious steps families are taking because lots of sicknesses are going around Charleston. We also closed Virgen's class due to a COVID exposure last night (11/12), and this afternoon (11/13), we closed Illisbeth's class due to a COVID exposure.  I spoke multiple times with DHEC today for contact tracing and to make sure [...]

Parent Fall Update: Preparing during a Crisis


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TZt_kK6ouE Dear parents, As humans we long for certainty, even control, and being a parent during this crisis challenges our desires. Before I share with you measures we are taking to prepare for our school launch, I want to encourage you in regards to how our loss of control can/will lead to either fear or faith. This past year, with the death of my dear brother, the birth of our 4th child, COVID, and the challenge of running a tuition-funded school in an economic crisis has made me more grateful than ever that I have a personal relationship with the King [...]
