Four Key Principles of Christian Schools

  1. The education of a child is the responsibility of the parents to whom that child was given.  Parents will answer to the Lord for the education their children receive.  (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:18-21; Psalm 78:1-7; Ephesians 6:4)
  2. The education of a child, if and when delegated to others by the parents, must be accomplished by teachers chosen with the greatest of care, with the clearest of intentionality, and with the knowledge that the teacher will disciple those students found within their care.  (Exodus 18:21, Psalm 78:6-7, Matthew 28:19-20)
  3. The education of a child should be structured in such a way as to provide an academic platform for success for the whole child.  (Proverbs 22:6, Luke 2:40 and 2:52)
  4. The education of a child must take into consideration training for student impact upon his own culture, and his educational impact with eternity in mind.  (Acts 1:8, II Timothy 4:6-8, Colossians 3:23-24, I Corinthians 3:11-13, Philippians 3:9-14)
