Loudon County Christian School Gets 2,500 Applications Following Far-Left Insanity in Virginia
A new Christian school in Loudon County, Va. has received 2,500 applications shortly after opening, as parents bail from the public school system that is failing children by design.
Loudon County has become a major flash point in the national culture war after cover-ups of sexual abuse and the targeting of parents. This has caused parents to run from this insane system to save their kids’ souls.
“After much prayer and discussion with our elders, and pastoral leadership, we will be launching Cornerstone Christian Academy,” Senior Pastor Gary Hamrick said.
Cornerstone, located at the former site of Middleburg Academy, will have enough space to accommodate 500 elementary and middle school students initially but will have room to expand rapidly considering the demand from parents for their kids to attend the school.
“They have classrooms, desks, there’s a gym, cafeteria, down the hall. We’re going to repurpose it for the Lord,” Hamrick said.
“Our goal is to provide children an education where they have a biblical worldview. So they can go out into the world and be salt and light,” he added.
Ray Moore, who founded the Christian Education Initiative, told CBN News that this is a “once in a 100-year moment” where an education revival is occurring in response to far-left corrosion in the public schools.
“It awakened many people, Christian churches, and some pastors to recognize that it is our responsibility to provide the Christian education or our children, not the government,” said Moore.
Big League Politics has reported on the insane corruption occurring in Loudon County schools:
“Internal Loudoun County School Board emails show a constantly changing explanation about how many school board members knew about a school sexual assault, with one member telling the school’s superintendent in wake of cover-up allegations that he may have “missed an email” informing him about it — even though he previously responded to that very email for further clarification and had allegedly just heard about the incident from somebody else, The Daily Wire reported.
“From my memory I recall” only learning about it “during the public comment process,” Democrat board member Harris Mahedavi wrote in an email to Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Scott Ziegler on October 12th. This was just one day after The Daily Wire had revealed that a girl had been raped in a bathroom on May 28th and that the superintendent denied the event’s occurrence during a public board meeting on June 22nd.
As previously reported, Ziegler wrote to the school board members immediately following the rape in May saying, “The purpose of this email is to provide you with information regarding an incident that occurred at Stone Bridge HS. This afternoon a female student alleged that a male student sexually assaulted her in the restroom.”
It was only about 3 weeks later on June 22nd when Ziegler said the following in a public board meeting:
“To my knowledge, we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms.” No school board members at the meeting challenged the superintendent on the contradiction.
Newly obtained emails posted by The Daily Wire paint a very different story. The series of messages were forced out by the parents’ group Fight For Schools as part of a Freedom of Information Act request.
On May 28th, Mahedavi sent an email to the superintendent, writing: “Dr. Ziegler, Has there been any update on this case that you can share with the board?”
Ziegler replied: “This matter is under investigation by law enforcement, and I am unable to provide an update.”
Another email written to the superintendent by school board member Beth Barts suggested that she had heard of a sexual assault at the school from the parents.”
More parents will need to divest from the public school system for America to continue as a cohesive nation where the liberties of all citizens are respected moving forward.
