Teaching Philosophy

  • Every person has a soul that will last forever and is created in the image of God. This truth is foundational to all education (Genesis 1:28, I Thessalonians 4:16-17).
  • The Bible instructs parents to nurture children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Deuteronomy 6:5-9, Psalm 78, Ephesians 6:1-4). The Church’s commission is to spread the Gospel and train believers (Matthew 28:18-20). The State has been directed to enforce God’s laws and protect the innocent (Romans 13). Parents should make use of the discipleship offered by the local Church so they and their children can grow in greater wisdom and knowledge, live in community, and serve in ways that love other people. Therefore, a school comes alongside the parents and church to provide a well-rounded education.
  • Jesus is the source of all truth (Colossians 2:3), and God’s character is revealed not only in His Word, but also in every facet of the creation. Therefore, we teach that all truth is God’s truth and  can instruct us about God himself.
  • God commands us to love Him with our minds, as well as with our hearts, souls, and strength (Matthew 22:37). Therefore, we seek to challenge children at all levels and by teaching a variety of subjects to pursue right thinking, right emotions, and right acting toward God and all of his creation.
  • We are all called to do our work “heartily, as for the Lord” (Colossians 3:23). Therefore, we believe we should strive for academic excellence in our teaching and encourage quality academic work from students.
