"A. God gives parents/guardians the responsibility for their childrenâ€™s education. â€œThese
commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your
children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when
you lie down and when you get up.â€? (Deuteronomy 6:6-7)
B. Parents/guardians may delegate a portion of the instruction of their children to teachers or a
school, but the responsibility remains with the parents. Covenant takes the responsibility of
acting â€œin the place of parentsâ€? very seriously, realizing the necessity for the home, the
church, and the school to provide consistent truth for the educational, spiritual, and physical
growth of the student. We, therefore, encourage and expect parental cooperation and
participation in the work of the school, in prayer support, oversight of the studentâ€™s
homework, upholding of disciplinary procedures, special help in areas when the student may
be deficient, and such other areas that benefit the instruction of the student.
C. It is the purpose of Covenant Christian School to provide a sound academic education
integrated with a Christian view of God and the world. The instructional program is based on
the infallible Word of God and the doctrinal standards of the Westminster Confession. We
make no apology for standing firmly upon the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as
the inerrant Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and life.
D. We believe there can be no neutrality in education or in any area of life. Learning is either
God-centered or man-centered; it begins either with acknowledging the authority of Godâ€™s
revelation and seeks His glory or with manâ€™s attempts to discover truth on his own. This
latter approach--making man the center of the universe and the measure of all things is
known as humanism. Most education today, public and private, is consciously or
unconsciously based on humanistic principles.
