Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Berwyn Baptist School holds a God-centered view of life. From this view stem certain educational implications
upon which we base our program. God can be known properly only as He tells us about Himself in His Word,
the Bible. Therefore, a daily period is devoted to learning and understanding God through studying the Bible.
This Christian school is committed to academic standards which necessitate the student's mastery of the skills
and knowledge needed for life and work. Students are accepted as individuals with different abilities and
expectations in the academic program. Therefore, the Christian school tries to devote special attention to each
child, providing for individual differences in an atmosphere of love and concern. The school cannot serve all
students, however, and only those are accepted whose needs the school is equipped to meet.
The teacher is the person who makes the educational philosophy of the school live in the classroom. Teachers
who are dedicated Christians and are committed to this view of life and education form a team to bring about
these objectives.
Parents and teachers work together to give the child a total education: body, mind and spirit. The Bible teaches
that the primary responsibility for the child belongs to the parents. The Christian school exists to supplement
and complement the training given in the home.
The school seeks to encourage the development of self-discipline and responsibility in the student based on
respect for and submission to God and all other authority.
The goal of Christian education is for the student to develop Christian though patterns and values so her can
fulfill his true purpose in life—to please God."
