Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe the Bible is the complete, fully reliable and trustworthy Word of God. All truth is centered in the Word of God; therefore, everything that is taught at Quakertown Christian School is taught in relationship to the Holy Scripture, the final authority, and adheres to our Statement of Faith. Jesus refers to Himself as the Truth in John 14:6. Again in John 17:17 Jesus makes reference to truth when He says, “Your Word is Truth.” If we are to make the knowledge we teach our students relevant, it must be taught in the light of God's enduring Word.

We believe that the claims of Christ founded in the truth of Scripture call for a personal faith response from each individual. As a unique creation of God – created in His image – each person has a unique purpose. We are created to bring glory to God. But as man has fallen from this purpose, so man must return again. Jesus Christ is the way of return to bring glory to God. The family, the church and the school must have as their primary purpose to help each individual realize this need and follow through in a life of fellowship with God and service to man.

We believe that it is important for students to make a connection between faith, the instructional program, and practical life situations. We thus provide the students with opportunities to live out their faith in the community by sharing with the elderly, with those who have fewer advantages, with the disabled, and with others of different ethnic backgrounds. Hands-on experiences are also provided both in the classroom and outside the classroom so that the students may relate their studies to real life. These experiences are also used to stimulate students' interest in and curiosity about the world in which they live.

We believe that God created each person as an individual with his or her own unique style of learning. Since there are numerous ways in which children learn, Quakertown Christian School provides its students with a wide variety of learning experiences that involve different modalities and means for each student to move at a pace in his or her studies, which is appropriate to those learning styles and capabilities.

Since Scripture indicates that all people, including children, have a sin nature, we believe that discipline is a vital part of a child's education. At Quakertown Christian School the Scriptural pattern for discipline is an important part of the task of educating children. Love and longsuffering as well as firmness form the basis for discipline at QCS.

The school is to complement the home and the church. As the school and the family are both a part of the church of Jesus Christ, we are all under His headship. The Scriptural injunction to train up a child in the way he should go was intended for parents; hence Quakertown Christian School supports and is sensitive to the needs of the total family. We, therefore, encourage family involvement in the education process through conferences, programs, social events and other family ministries. Through cooperative effort the family and school can achieve a complete education for the child.
