Candace Tambagahan, along with her husband Sean, has three boys who attend Clovis Christian Schools. Before they came to CCS, they home-schooled their kids, as both considered themselves victims of the public school system.
“With the public school system, parents are left out of the educational decisions. I know there’s a lot of curriculums coming out that I didn’t particularly like and disagreed with, and so for my kids, I wanted to be able to pick and choose what they were learning and how they were learning things.”
Initially, Candace was worried about private schools, as she had heard many negative things about private schools as if they were no different than a public school.
“Some of the private schools that we have around here are just as big as the public schools. And, I was afraid of letting them go and losing the desire to do school in a home setting, and wanting just the hype of all the friends and the playing, even though that’s necessary. Then obviously our religious background as being Christians.”
“I wanted them to be taught in a godly way that had more moral standards. I didn’t realize there was a difference in Clovis Christian compared to the other private schools. For me, I was all for sending them to Clovis Christian School.”
At first, they enrolled two of their boys at CCS, but after halfway through the year, they realized how much CCS had to offer, and now they are entirely a part of our family.
At CCS, we use ABEKA, a quality curriculum with a personalized, accessible, faith-based education. Your child will receive the specialized, robust education they deserve at an accessible price.
