Jubilee Celebration

 
What is a Jubilee?
 
Our Jubilee year is upon us! In the Old Testament (Leviticus 25), the Jubilee Year was a time of freedom and celebration. The Master’s School, founded in 1970, will be launching its Jubilee this fall, celebrating 50 years of what God has done on this campus through His people—the teaching, guidance, and relationships developed between all faculty, staff, students and families throughout these 50 years.

Our Jubilee Celebration launched on October 12, 2019 and will continue for 20 months concluding with Graduation 2021. The Jubilee committee has been busy planning events that will bring our community together to honor the rich history of The Master’s School. This page will be frequently updated with details about the Jubilee Celebration and other upcoming events.

We hope you share in our excitement as we remember, reflect, and thank our Creator for 50 years of The Master’s School and look with anticipation to all He has planned for us in the years ahead.
 
As we embark on The Master's School Jubilee Celebration, let’s take a look at how it all began.  
 
In the fall of 1969, a group of people from Covenant Presbyterian Church formed a group called the "Center for Renewal”. The intent of this group was to establish several ministries to meet the needs of the community.  Among the ministries was to be a Christian School.  As months went on, it became clear that the Center for Renewal's only ministry whose time had come was a school.
 
Throughout the fall, winter, and spring of 1969-70, a group met in West Hartford at the home of Art and Ginny Miller and discussed the many aspects of starting a Christian school.  Should it be a denominational school? Should it accept only children from Christian homes? Should it be college preparatory? What type of curriculum should be used?
 
With all of these questions answered and a building and Headmaster in place, The Master’s School opened in September of 1970 with 52 students in kindergarten through grade 3 and grades 8 and 9.
 
We are excited to share and celebrate what God has done over the last 50 years through this school.  Below is a list of events that we have planned to bring our past and current community together as we celebrate our history.  We pray that you will join us over the next 20 months as we embark on this journey knowing “The Lord has done great things and we are filled with joy.” Psalms 126:3.
