An overview of our education standards and curriculum

The Standard

 

God is the source of all wisdom and He has revealed Himself specifically in the Bible – thus God’s Word is the basis of all our studies and should be correlated with all experiences that the child has under the auspices of the school. Christian education seeks to train a child in such a way that they will have a sound, practical working knowledge of the Word of God and be able to evaluate every circumstance of life from a Christian perspective. The home and church, being ordained of God and being charged with the responsibility of training and teaching (Deut. 6:6, Matthew 28:20), should work together with the Christian School in promoting the student’s growth.

Meeting the Standard

 

We seek daily to meet our standard through:

 

  1. Godly teachers living before their students a sterling example of the reality of Christ in their own lives (MODELING);
  2. Chapel services where students are challenged to follow Christ and know Him more and be led to make practical decisions concerning their everyday lives (SPIRITUAL);
  3. A curriculum where the Word is woven throughout (EDUCATIONAL);
  4. Activities that stretch a young person’s limits and build character (PHYSICAL);
  5. A safe, drug-free, disciplined, loving environment (SOCIAL);
  6. Consistent enforcement of Godly preferences of conduct, behavior, and appearance (MOLDING);
  7. Opportunities to get out of the classroom and into the marketplace in order to share Christ with a sin-cursed world (EVANGELISTIC); and,
  8. Exposing them to college and career opportunities and encouragement to continue on a track of Christian Education. (Luke 2:52)  “And Jesus grew in favor with God and man.”  (MATURING).

The Curriculum

 

We use A Beka Book, Wee Learn and Bob Jones Curriculum in our classrooms.  All three curriculums are Biblically based so that all instruction is built on the foundation of God’s Word.
