Clayborn Hall is
unquestionably and eminently successful with three types
of home education students:
1.Exceptionally bright and
motivated young men or women who demand challenges equal
to their abilities.
2 Bright to normal students who, for lack of motivating
instruction, have not been successful in public school
3. Able-minded students who have not yet discovered
their full potential.
Hall's unparalleled success is due to three unwavering
dedication to the individuality of each student.

has its place. In the Olympics, World Cup Soccer, and
the Superbowl, it's a great thing. But more important
than merely competing, is selecting the right game and
the right arena. Track stars and champion ice skaters do
not play soccer on a basketball court. An NFL
quarterback does not race a bicycle around a tennis
court. Such competition might prove humorous, but the
results would be meaningless.
competition is what Clayborn Hall sees in the education
programs offered by most private and all public schools.
A room full of students is forced to compete, student
against student, regardless of vastly different
ambitions and abilities. It's the academic equivalent of
an ice skater competing against a weight lifter. In the
classroom, however, the results are not laughable;
they're often tragic and frustrating. Educational
standards must be kept high. There can be no substitutes
for competency in academics and extracurricular
involvements. But the highest standard of all must be
the school's recognition, regard, and treatment of each
student as a unique, one of a kind, individual, with a
unique, one of a kind set of dreams and drives.

consider. It is just as ridiculous to match the student
with high literary skills against another with strong
mathematics abilities. Clayborn Hall believes the
literary student should be matched against what he or
she might become: poet, novelist, critic, teacher. The
mathematics student should do the same: compete against
what he or she could very likely be: scientist,
engineer, architect. But why should they compete against
The Clayborn Hall staff and
faculty are experienced experts in this educational approach. We
invite you to carefully consider the unique
individuality of your child, and what a wondrous,
God-given thing that individuality truly is. Then, we
invite you to consider how that quality will be
respected, developed, and encouraged at Clayborn Hall.
