Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The philosophical vision of Life Christian School and Academy is rooted in the Christian view of life. We celebrate the triune God as the author of all truth and reality as He is revealed in Scripture and creation. The center of a student's education is Jesus Christ through whom all other learning must be viewed and integrated; He is both the reason and source for all learning. The design for Christian learning integrates increased understanding of the natural world, human history, culture, and the arts, with increased personal knowledge of God Himself as revealed in Christ and understood through the Scriptures.

As a school we depend upon the Holy Spirit to do His work of illumination. However, because sin entered God's universe and man lives with a fallen nature, man's ability to learn and know is limited. Although man's understanding is separated from God through sin, man bears God's image. God's grace thus allows man to understand truth and to fulfill his potential.
Life Christian, as an educational institution, believes bringing up a child in Christ-likeness is primarily the responsibility and Biblical duty of the parent. Our school exists to assist in that education but will never replace the family's role. We work in partnership with the family as we work through our shared commitment to the student's upbringing. That commitment is expressed in a mutual desire to see student's character transformed to reflect the image of Christ, impacting the world in their calling, family and community.
With Christ as the center and source, in partnership with the family in helping students realize their unique reflection of God's image, Life
