Academic

The purpose of the school is to assist parents in helping their children to grow mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially (Luke 2:52) and to encourage each student to follow Jesus in service to God (Romans 12:1,2).

 

We seek to achieve this purpose by:

A.   Providing a loving, disciplined learning environment.

B.   Providing Christian teachers committed to excellence.

C.   Providing a Christ-centered curriculum that prepares students for God-given responsibilities in the family, church, community and the nation.

Faith

We believe that there is no such thing as "neutrality" in education (or in any other area of life).  Learning and teaching are either God-centered or man-centered.  Education must begin with acknowledging the authority of God's revelation and seeking His glory, or it must be an attempt to find truth independently of God.

Christian education does not happen when there is simply an addition of Bible to readings and prayers to an essentially unbiblical curriculum.  A Christian school is one in which every subject is taught from a biblical perspective.  The Bible must not be merely the textbook for one class but must provide the framework, the "world-and-life view," from which every subject must be approached, both by teachers and students.

Discipline

Our discipline procedure includes two tracks.  Track 1 refers to the daily predictable inappropriate behavior and Track 2 refers to unpredictable inappropriate behavior when major infractions occur.

Each teacher has a classroom management plan consisting of class rules, incentives and consequences.  This system spells out the behaviors we expect from students and what they can expect from us in return.  Each teacher's plan may differ but consequences are standardized, so our students will always know what to expect.

Our goal is to have a fair and consistent way to establish a save, orderly, positive classroom environment in which we can teach and students can learn.
