At the end of my 6th grade year, my mother faced a dilemma. After trying a few popular writing programs, I still could produce little more than a disorganized summary of a short story. Then, my mother discovered a new course, Dr. Stobaugh's Skills for Literary Analysis. At first, we were overwhelmed by the thought-provoking assignments. However, by the end of the school-year, I could comfortably compose a literary analysis of a Shakespeare play or a Dickens novel. I can confidently say that this is thanks to three factors of equal importance: my mother's persistent guidance, the course's continually challenging assignments, and Dr. Stobaugh's weekly critiques of my papers through the distance learning program. I am forever grateful to Dr. Stobaugh for his vital role in teaching me how to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and deliver a cohesive written assignment.

For Such a Time as this is a Christ-centered, classical education, online college prep program. Our theory of education includes:

•All teaching goals fall into these three categories: Affective (Spiritual), Behavioral, & Cognitive (Academic). Proverbs 2:3-5

•Affective (emotive) gates guard cognitive progress. In other words, all other objectives/goals are contingent upon a viable affective student demeanor. At the same time, affective progress mitigates all educational deficits. 1 Cor. 1:21-22; Psalm 111:10

•All educational goals are measured in stages. Progress requires dissonance. Luke 15:17-19

•Cognitive, affective, and behavioral objectives are interrelated and should be taught together. Romans 8:9

•Cultural diversity is a strength of the humanities. It is an antidote to a grievance mentality. Romans 8: 31-39

•Cognition can be divorced from morality but to do so presages cultural suicide. Hab. 2:14. The story of Ahab & Jezebel. 1 Sam.

I got an A in my writing seminar and my professor encouraged me to apply a writing seminar fellow (tutor other undergrads in writing). Thanks Dr. Stobaugh!
