What We Believe

  • That God is the ultimate source of existence and truth, and the Bible is accepted as God's revealed will. Thus, students are directed to the loving and redeeming God of Scripture in all areas of the Christ-centered program. 

  • That each person is endowed with characteristics similar to those of the Creator; "individuality, power to think and to do." Thus, there is an emphasis on academic excellence and high achievement where students are challenged to be "thinkers and not mere reflectors" of other persons' beliefs and philosophies.

  • That education should be more than just completing a particular course of study or preparing for life on this earth. Thus the emphasis on character development.

  • That each person is created in the image of God and is of inestimable value. Thus the total program is to provide for the balanced and harmonious development of the whole person—intellectually, spiritually, physically, and socially—that the divine purpose for each one might be realized.

  • That unselfish service is a basic principle of life. Thus there is an emphasis on meaningful and productive work and on participation in witnessing/service-learning activities and projects where the emphasis is on unselfish service and on developing sensitivity to the needs of others.

  • That the education of children and youth requires the cooperative efforts of the home, the church, and the school. Thus the emphasis is on connecting students to a system of support services, activities, and opportunities at the school and within the constituency that meets the challenges of the curricular/co-curricular program.
