At Rehoboth Academy, our mission is to learn to do right, seek justice, encourage the oppressed, defend the case of the fatherless, and plead the case of the widow (Isaiah 1:17). We do not wish to be 'foolish teaching the way that seems right to a man, but in the end leads to death' (Proverbs 14:12). For this reason we have chosen the Bible as our standard of what is right.
Rehoboth Academy was a non-chartered, non tax-supported school for nearly a decade. During the last year of operation (2007-2008), Rehoboth Academy operated under the name Williams Corner Christian School.
Neither Rehoboth Academy nor Williams Corner Christian School were ever homeschools. Both were registered with the State of Ohio as 08 schools during their years of operation. Graduates from these schools are not homeschool graduates, but graduates from a non-chartered, non tax-supported school in the State of Ohio.
Although Rehoboth Academy is no longer operating as a school, we continue to provide services (information and transcripts) to support home educators and 08 schools.
Our motto, Justum Et Tenacem Propositi, means Just and Steadfast of Purpose. Our new seal, features this motto around a picture of a shepherdess drawing water from a well in the Negev, an area close to the original well named Rehoboth at Gerar. Thanks to the photographer, Avi Navon, and Joe Alon Center, Israel, for the use of the photo. The motto comes from Carmina (III, 3, 1), Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus). The complete quote in context follows.
The man who is just and resolute will not be moved from his settled purpose, either by the misdirected rage of his fellow citizens, or by the threats of an imperious tyrant.
[Lat., Justum et tenacem propositi virum Non civium ardor prava jubentium, Non vultus instantis tyranni, Mente quatit solida.]
My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken. On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.
Psalm 62:5-7 NASB
