EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT
1. God, the Creator of the family, has given parents the overall responsibility for training their children (Eph. 6:4). Therefore, we desire to operate a school of high academic quality that will support the training that children receive in their home and church. The school will consult directly with parents about all major decisions affecting their child, except as required by law.
2. Reverence for the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Ps. 111:10) and that in God's Son, Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col. 2:3). Therefore we desire to operate a school that will promote reverence for the Lord and
encourage inquiry into all areas of creation and culture for a Christ-centered perspective, guided by the divine truths of the Bible.
3. The influence of teachers as Christian models is essential in the educational experience of our children. Therefore we desire to operate a school that employs only dedicated Christian teachers, who are called by God to relate all areas of the curriculum to God's truth, who model mature Christian character, and who have used their God-given abilities to acquire superior academic training.
4. Christian education should encourage the "whole-person" development of students who learn to love the Lord God with all their hearts, souls, and minds. Therefore we desire to operate a school that produces students who are committed to Christ, who are able to analyze issues with biblical discernment, who are developing creative, artistic, and academic skills under
the lordship of Christ, who are committed to maintaining their bodies as temples of the Holy Spirit, and who are maturing in their ability to live the Christian life and be "salt" and "light" in the culture and society in which God has placed them."
