THE VISION

"Behold, I say unto you, concerning the
school in Zion, I, the Lord, am well pleased
that there should be a school in Zion..."
Doctrine & Covenants 94:2a

In 1833 the prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. was given a revelation concerning the school which had been established in Jackson County, Missouri. The early Latter Day Saints were interested in education from the beginning of the Restoration. They knew that without education their children could not read and study the word of God. They established the first school in Jackson County, Missouri. The early Latter Day Saints were not permitted to remain in Missouri and the desire to teach children in a school with an environment where Restoration ideals and principles could be emphasized remained unfulfilled until very recently. Center Place Restoration School is the end result of many prayers and the sacrificial efforts of inspired and caring saints.

THE PRESENT
Center Place Restoration School was founded in 1991 through the devotion and dedicated sacrifice of Restoration Branches and individual saints throughout the United States. This school is located at 819 West Waldo Avenue in Independence, Missouri - only a few blocks north of the Temple Lot. Since the first day we opened our doors to students in the fall of 1992, CPRS has dramatically increased in enrollment. This can be attributed to the many inspiring testimonies, and the response of many who desire to be in an environment where spiritual values can be taught. High academic standards are stressed, and students also receive a solid spiritual foundation upon which they will build and grow when they enter the world on their own.

THE FUTURE
The young people who are a part of Center Place Restoration School, nurtured and strengthened by the Zionic principles they acquire here, may well play a role in the development of the Lord's glorious kingdom!
