We believe in the existence of the Creator God and regard his will and authority as the foundation of all true education. We believe the restoration of the image of God in the student is the supreme objective of Christian education and sets the educational agenda and curriculum. We believe that excellence in education embraces strong academics, recognizes the dignity of every person, and provides a learning environment where Christian principles are both taught and modeled. In addition, we recognize that Christian education is a cooperative effort that must include the home, the church and the school.
We believe that all students deserve to be challenged to achieve their full potential by educating the whole person, intellectually, spiritually, physically, and socially, to academic excellence, to generous service as a way of life, to be sensitive to the needs of others, and to become active and committed members of the church and productive members of society.
“True education means more than the pursuit of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is….It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come.”
