Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The foundation for the philosophy of the school is the Word of God. Accepting its authority, authenticity, and reliability as God's means of revealing truth, the Bible is the center of every subject taught. Its truth is integrated into all areas of the curriculum, and every part of the curriculum is interpreted and applied from a Christ-centered, Biblical perspective.

There are two very basic and opposing views of life. The Humanistic viewpoint (which is man-centered) sees man as a product of this world, a result of evolutionary processes and human history. The Theistic viewpoint (which is God-centered) sees man as a special creation of God, and seeks to view every dimension of life as God sees it. The contrast in the two viewpoints is vividly portrayed in the concept of man. Humanism declares that man is basically good; the Bible declares that man is a sinner by nature.

The ultimate purpose of our school is to glorify God. It is our desire that each student in our school will come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. And then, through the indwelling work of the Holy Spirit and study of God's Word, we endeavor to assist the progressive sanctification of our student body in order for them to develop and nurture a Christ-like life so that whatever they do mentally, physically, spiritually, or socially will be governed and controlled by God's leading.
