Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that man is created in the image of God. Therefore, God's sovereignty is supreme over every aspect of our life. Man is finite and is dependent upon divine revelation for all ultimate truth. This belief establishes the foundation of the Christian World/Life View.

As the Christian school concerns itself with mastering the fundamentals of human knowledge, it must rely upon this Christian World/Life View in the pursuit of educational excellence. Since God reveals Himself in the Bible and in His creation, the Christian school gives the Bible and its teachings a prominent place in curriculum. This emphasis can play an important role in transmitting to the next generation of Americans the spiritual nature of their heritage.

A school is an effective place for learning only if it can provide a God-fearing environment accompanied by consistent discipline and orderliness. Only a Christian school can provide such an atmosphere. Only a Christian school can integrate God's revelations and human learning. It is, therefore, our purpose to provide sound academic training integrated with a distinctly Christian view of God and the world. There are important differences between the Christian view on any given subject and the many non-Christian views on that same subject. Even though knowledge is factually the same for all, no subject can be taught totally or accurately if the Creator is ignored or denied. Knowledge is properly understood only by the recognition of God's preeminence in it. No formal education can be entirely adequate unless God is honored throughout.

The Christian school musters all of man's faculties for a study of God's revelations so that intellectual, social, emotional and physical development is given unity, direction and balance.

The hub of human relations in the Christian school is personal concern for each other in the spirit of law and love. This premise should be evident in the general atmosphere of the school, and in the personal relationships among teachers, pupils, staff and parents.

It is our purpose to personally see that the education we provide is both excellent and thoroughly Christian. We diligently seek to instill the time-honored values of faith in God, love of family, patriotism, respect for authority, and hard work. Our responsibility is to nurture, instruct and train students in order to help parents fulfill their God-given mandate to "train up a child in the way he should go" (Proverbs 22:6) and to "bring them up in the fear and admonition of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4).
