Why Christian Education?

Christian Worldview

Our goal is to educate children in a Christian worldview teaching them to take up the tools of learning to glorify their Creator. Bible is not only a separate subject, but is the perspective from which all subjects are taught. As we teach every subject, we seek to diligently teach and apply the truths and principles of the word of God.

Our classical approach is guided and informed by the Biblical realities of Creation, the Fall, and Redemption. Our Christian worldview determines and guides all classroom instruction. Students are educated as individuals created, loved, and governed by the God of the Bible. History demonstrates His sovereignty and providence. Science demonstrates His wisdom and creativity. Math demonstrates His order and logic.

Classical education recognizes the intellectual development of a child and matches the delivery of instruction in pursuit of its goal – to train up a young man or woman not simply to be a good worker in a field, but to be an able person in life. A Classical Christian education trains both the minds and hearts of students. While our approach to education is distinctly classical, our conviction is to “bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” in the context of a Christian worldview.

Deuteronomy 6:7 commands parents “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.” Under this command, parents are expected to take their understanding of the word of God and apply it to every aspect of life so that their children grow up with their understanding of all of life infused with the word of God. Our purpose as a Christian school is no different. Richard Reisen writes, “…it is the Christian school’s obligation to make sure that those whom they teach learn to think as Christians should.” (Piety and Philosophy, 87) We ultimately desire the redemption of the soul of each child as they are taught and trained to pursue their God-given course to the glory of God.
