What is a Micro School?
CCLS is partnering with Lutheran churches to provide Christ-centered education through the development of “micro-schools'' for the 2021-22 school year.
What is a micro-school? In short, a micro-school is a small community of learners of various ages in an environment similar to a one-room schoolhouse. Christ-centered learning guides lead the students in self-directed learning, while providing the core elements of a Lutheran education-- Christ, Character, Community.
