Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that Christian education extends beyond the informational dimension and is
transformational (Rom. 12:2). It is designed to produce Christ-likeness in students.
We believe that the final responsibility for the discipline and instruction of the child
belongs primarily to the parents (Eph. 6:4). We recognize that education begins in the
home and is advanced in the Christian school as an extension of parental authority.
Therefore, we seek to work closely with the home in a mutual effort to inculcate in the
student those standards and values that are consistent with the Christian worldview.
We believe that in order for education to be consistently Christian, all those who impact
the learning environment of the student must themselves be Christian. Within the school
context the teacher serves as the primary shaper of a child’s heart and mind as defined by
the biblical worldview. Teaching and modeling in Christian discipleship by the teacher
equips the student to live an exemplary life as a disciple of Jesus (Luke 6:40).
We believe that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Prov. 1:7) and that,
consequently, no dimension of life can be rightly understood apart from the grace and
knowledge of God. Christian education purposes to set the knowledge of God and of His
creation in its right order by the application of biblical truth to every area of life and
thought. Biblical integration is the method by which God’s Word is infused into every
aspect of the school program. All academic disciplines and extracurricular activities alike
must be aligned to biblical principles and commands. No teaching, theory or policy which
contradicts the teaching of Scripture may be presented as true, practical or expedient (Col.
We believe that Christian education involves training the whole child and encompasses the
study of his or her whole world. Each student's unique learning capacity and various talents
are designed and given by God Himself. These gifts are bestowed upon each
student, empowering them to fulfill the specific destiny for which they were created.
Christian education seeks to realize the full potential God has invested in every student. It
is not limited to the spiritual and intellectual domains but includes the physical and social
domains as well (Luke 2:52). The core of Christian education is not to be found in what is
done for the students; it is to be found in what the students learn to do for themselves. With
that in view, we emphasize challenge and affirmation, personal responsibility and selfdiscipline
in our efforts to present each student complete in Christ (Col. 1:28).
We believe, as a ministry of Mission Hills Community Church, in the active participation
of the Holy Spirit in the educational process. It is the Holy Spirit who leads both teachers
and students into all the truth (John 16:13). It is by the leading of the Holy Spirit, the
Comforter, that the teacher is able to minister to the spoken and unspoken needs of the
child’s heart. It is the power of the Holy Spirit that regenerates, redeems and renews the
child in Christ from an otherwise self-oriented nature (Eph. 1:13-14)."
