About Us


  • To provide a Christian home environment for children dependent upon others for care

  • To promote their growth physically, emotionally, and educationally

  • To develop the child in the teaching of God's word

  • To guide the young person toward a devoted life of good citizenship in the world, and ultimately in the Kingdom of God

Spiritual Goals

The word of God is essential in the development of a child, therefore, our children attend Bible classes and worship at local area Churches of Christ. Morning cottage devotionals before school are expected, as well as weekly Wednesday evening Bible classes on campus. Our children are also involved in summer church camps, weekly summer youth meetings, and local church youth activities. Decency, moral character, a respect for God and man are some of the very basics taught. Developing these attributes will help the child understand and accept authority.

Educational Goals

"Reading, riting and rithmetic" - the three r's are important in the educational process of a child. The Cherokee Independent School District provides an education for the children, grades Kindergarten through 12. Headstart students are taken to San Saba for pre-school training. Special tutoring on our campus (W.P. Brummett Memorial Library) benefits each child at the level he or she may be in their educational endeavors. Students have opportunities to attend the college or university of their choosing. Many of the students will participate in poetry, prose, math, science, and many of the other competitive programs offered by the University Interscholastic League, or UIL.
