Christian Based Education

The primary distinguishing factor between public schools and Christian schools is philosophy. All education whether secular or religious, here or abroad, is presented from the philosophical point of view of those who develop the curriculum and those who impart the contents.

The Word of God commands that our philosophy be Christ-based:

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. Colossians 2:8 NIV  

The following points outline the basic philosophical presuppositions that are foundational to our school:

  1. The Bible is God’s infallible Word – 2 Timothy 3:16
  2. The earth is God’s creation – it belongs to Him – Genesis 1:1, Psalms 24:1
  3. Man's responsiblity is to be faithful in managing all of God’s created order - Genesis 1:28-30.
  4. The first educators are the parents – Deuteronomy 6

Home, church and school are the three greatest factors influencing child development. Each of these institutions has a specific function unique to the plan and purpose of God. All three should harmonize in their objectives and philosophies.

The goal of the school is to develop independent, self-reliant, life-long learners. But education does not begin and end with school; the home and the church are also very vital centers of learning. We value the ability to work together with home and church to provide a united effort in raising children in spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social and physical health.
