Why Christian Education?
What makes a Christian school truly Christian?
In part, it is because of the people who work at a school and because of the basic beliefs of the school, but it goes much deeper than that.
Everything that is taught is fully shaped by a Christian worldview - whether it is history, math, science, literature, or any other subject. Since “worldview” is your perspective on everything, Christian school children have a much greater chance of making the right choices that lead to success, because they know how God’s world works.
Students learn how to apply, analyze, evaluate and appreciate everything based on God’s standards. In Science, we know the world shows beautiful design and pattern, because it was created that way – and that impacts how we interact with that world. In Literature, students will learn to understand the author’s meaning, comparing it with Christian values and beliefs – and that ability to critically analyze translates to many other areas of life.
Everything that is taught emphasizes our special place in the world: we are created by God to love and be loved by Him, and to be faithful stewards of the world He created.
Christian schools strive to help children to love God, and to love His Word, the Bible. In a day and age when things are constantly changing, Christian schools are committed to teaching children to discern – and that will help our children make wise choices today and in the future.
