We value a cooperative relationship with parents, who are their child’s primary teacher. We rely on the Bible as authoritative in all areas. All truth is God’s truth. Of great importance is each child’s personal relationship with Christ. This biblical foundation includes:
- Loving God and worshipping Him with our words, actions, and heart (Mark 12:30, Romans 12:1, Hebrews 11:6).
- Recognizing the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
- Confessing a personal commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord (Romans 10:9).
- Being active participants in achieving the Great Commission of “making disciples” (Matthew 28:19-20).
- Serving others so as to attain the full measure of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-13).
- Developing and articulating a Christian worldview (2 Peter 1:3).
We value strong academics, and provide content and skills in a sequence that is developmentally appropriate to enable students to become independent, life-long learners. Students will acquire the knowledge and skills needed for meaningful participation in society as an adult, enabling them:
- To be an informed decision maker.
- To realize their academic potential.
- To be effective in written and oral communication.
- To have the knowledge and skills to be a life-long learner.
- To be critical thinkers and problem solvers.
- To pursue areas of personal interest and to develop their God-given talents and creative skills (2 Timothy 2:15).
- To have an understanding of and confidence in the reality of God’s call on their life (Ephesians 2:10).
We value the development of students’ social skills and emotional resilience, which are required for effective interaction in today’s society. We teach students:
- To accept him/herself as a unique product of God’s gracious nature, omniscience and power (Psalm 139:13-16).
- To respect and love every other person (Romans 13:8; Philippians 2:3).
- To be effective contributing members of society and to show godly relational behavior toward others (1 John 1:7).
- To exercise God-pleasing moral behavior in all walks of life (Hebrews 13:4).
- To use time wisely and maintain a godly attitude toward work (Matthew 12:26; Eph 5:15-16).
We value activities and habits that will promote a healthy lifestyle. We teach our students:
- To maintain physical fitness, good eating habits and to avoid unhealthy activities.
- To participate in competitive sports and/or activities.
- To express cooperation and contribute to teamwork in sports and activities.
- To participate in recreational activities to enhance life-long physical and mental health.
