"The Castlewood Christian School was founded to provide a Christian education for Seventh-day Adventist and other Christian young people in grades K-8.
"True education means more than a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come." Education, p. 13.
Seventh-day Adventists believe in God. They believe that their students are the children of God, their teachers--servants of God. This school is therefore commissioned to follow the mind and will of God, which is revealed in the Holy Scriptures, through the life of His Son, and through nature, when viewed as a revelation of His character. The church school is designed to insure that the youth of the church may receive a balanced religious, intellectual, social and physical education in harmony with denominational standards and ideals.
Seventh-day Adventists conduct elementary schools for the express purpose of transmitting to their children the moral and spiritual values, the beliefs, attitudes, appreciations, habits and customs of the church. In addition to educating law-abiding, useful citizens, Seventh-day Adventist schools accent the aim of developing responsible church members, prepared for vocational, technical or professional occupations calculated to make them by effective employees of the denomination or self-supporting leaders in the life of the community. It is the work of this Seventh-day Adventist school to transmit these values to its pupils.
The program is designed to be Christ-centered. It is our belief that our ultimate purpose is to love and to serve God and our fellow men, and that all instruction and learning must be directed towards helping young people achieve that end. The aim of our school can be summed up in the following quotation. "To restore in man the image of his Maker, to bring him back to the perfection in which he was created, to promote the development of body, mind, and soul that the Divine purpose in his creation might be realized--this was to be the work of redemption. This is the object of education, the great object of life." Education, p. 15, 16."
