Our Philosophy

Elementary student reading the Bible

Foundation & Goal

The foundation of all knowledge and wisdom – all Truth – is God, Himself (cf. Genesis 1:1; Psalm 19). Because we are made in His image (Genesis 1:26-28) we have the ability to learn this knowledge and wisdom. Education is a gift from God to discover more about Him: who He is and what He is like.

Our goal is to instill a love for learning and discovery that will guide our students in their pursuit of the knowledge of God. At the same time, we recognize that education, itself, can only take a person so far. More is needed. We, therefore, bring into our classrooms and conversations the greatest revelation of God – the Person of Jesus Christ. Without Him, knowledge is merely information. With Him, knowledge becomes wonder and delight!

Kindergarten graduation for Christian foundation


Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he (she) should go; even when he (she) is old, he (she) will not depart from it.” We view the Christian school as an extension of the Christian family, training young people for time and eternity in a Christian environment. Our school staff will work closely with parents to train the whole child and undergird the parents’ authority. For this reason, we ask for parents’ cooperation and participation.

In addition to academic pursuit, we seek to include two other life lessons for our students.

The first concerns government. Although our nation has had its share of faults, and although it continues to struggle in ways, we want to develop in our students a sense of respect for government. We recognize government as ordained by God and that it is His servant for good (Romans 13:1-7), and therefore should be honored while being improved where necessary (Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Timothy 2:1-3).

The second life lesson is a strong work ethic. Diligence in our labors, whether academic or otherwise, will bear rich fruit in the future and strong character now. Working hard is part of having a good reputation and is a way to show ourselves to be trustworthy (cf. Proverbs 12:24; 22:29).
