I know we all share a concern for those Christian homeschoolers who don’t learn anything useful from mommy and daddy and find themselves looking forward to a career at the car wash.
No problem!

Rivendell is an 18-month, higher-learning, biblical worldview program focused on preparing high school graduates to excel academically, spiritually, morally and socially in college and citizenship.

(...)

Rivendell Sanctuary is intended to be a safe haven of higher education. An educational community where High School graduates—bright as well as bored, confused, and abused—come for two years to pursue an Associate of Arts degree with a biblical perspective on all of life and reality. Students will discover meaning and mission for their individual lives and forge deep bonds with friends, mentors, a local church and God.

(...)

Rivendell Sanctuary evaluates student development according to a biblical criterion, rather than a Western or other cultural criterion.

But, unfortunately…

Though we cannot guarantee accreditation, we have no indication that there will be a delay in the process.

Not to worry!

In the event that accreditation takes longer than expected, we will work to secure credit transfer agreements with individual colleges and universities to the best of our ability.

I went to their website. They offer ONE course! You could say it’s a pyramid scheme.

Rivendell does not offer majors, minors or electives. Rather, all students embark on a single, integrated, 18 month program designed to give them a biblical worldview perspective on all of life. You will find that our program is more than an academic pursuit. It’s the educational journey of a lifetime! It comes as a discipleship package (illustrated below) in which students are mentored in the fundamentals of learning and living. Therefore, the program is best understood if read in sequence, starting with our Biblical Philosophy and continuing until you reach the pinnacle—our Sequenced-Modular Curriculum.

This says it all.

Religion is good for one thing: making you feel better while someone else rules you.  Religion is more a reflection than a cause of conflicts. The causes lie in conflicting cultural mores and traits.
