Education for children's hearts and minds

Early education introduces children to relationships outside of their homes, and it lays a foundation for life-long learning through play, connection, and purpose. However, due to COVID, quarantine practices eliminated that socialization for many families. 

With the support of her husband and friends, Cassidy Sullivan set out to create a school environment based on trust, confidence, communication, navigating conflict, and most of all, fun. Launched during uncertain times, Edelwise Christian is aptly named after Sullivan’s favorite childhood musical, The Sound of Music, and the alpine flower that is known to grow in the toughest conditions.

Now in their third school year, Edelwise Christian is flourishing. “Our kids leave with nourished hearts and minds, feeling cherished by their teachers and excited to return for more,” Sullivan affirms. The school currently serves two-year-olds through first grade but is anticipating the opportunity to bloom and grow by adding second through fourth grades next year. “As we continue to add elementary grades each year, we are passionate about maintaining these foundations, preparing effective leaders and strong communicators that are grounded in God’s truth,” says Sullivan. 


“Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life, and our environment is designed to be an extension of home, as we partner with parents in raising the next generation.” - Charlotte Mason | 2201 US-290, Bldg B
