Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Core Values: 1. Create an atmosphere where children understand the need for a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ; 2. Teach Biblical principles and moral standards which are necessary to every part of life; 3. Nurture the God-given talents and abilities of each child; 4. Promote personal responsibility through independent and cooperative efforts with others; 5. Present academics as an extension of the Lord’s revelation in creation; and 6. Commit to teaching the why beneath belief.
