Teaching approach of the school

Our approach is relational and active. Our Christian faith is integrated into all of our teaching.
Our educational philosophy:
Purpose of Education: We believe that a Christian education equips students for a life of service to God by guiding them in the development of essential knowledge, dispositions, and skills within a worldview that affirms God's creation, man's sinfulness, and
Christ's redemption. A complete education transforms knowledge into wisdom, practical action, and service.
Educational Roles: We believe that children learn in a variety of contexts. God has given parents the primary responsibility for raising their children; the school and the church are influential partners in the educational process.
Truth and Knowledge: We believe that God is the ultimate source of Truth and knowledge as revealed in both the Bible and His created reality.
Teachers: We believe that teachers are leaders and mentors who nurture and influence students in their care by modeling authentic godliness and by providing a variety of engaging, active learning experiences and assessments, using high quality materials
and effective methods.
Students:We believe that students are unique, valued, responsible individuals who are created in God's image. Learning is best fostered in a safe and supportive, yet challenging and stimulating environment that recognizes their multi-dimensional nature.
Curriculum:We believe that an effective instructional program is rigorous and provides carefully structured learning experiences from a biblical perspective within a broad range of subjects in the context of a liberal arts education.
