The Bible informs us that “the fear of the Lord” is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom (Proverbs 1:7, 9:10). Therefore, any integrated, meaningful education that is truly valid must have this “reverence of God” as its starting point and “doing the will of God” as its goal.
After examining the Scripture, one finds that the basic responsibility for teaching and instructing children has been given to the home (Deut. 6:6). The authority by which a school operates is that which is delegated to them by the parents. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the church and the school to give instructions, and to reinforce and supplement values and principles being taught in a home.
The home, the church, or the school cannot do an effective job alone. A true and valid education can only come about through the cooperation of these three elements. Thus, our motto becomes “the home, the church, and the school working together for the betterment of our children.” The importance of this coalition between home, church, and school is further recognized when considering that all truth belongs to God whether it is scientific, historical, philosophical, or spiritual.
Bible teaching has a primary place in the curriculum of our school. It is in the Bible that we find the great truths about God, ourselves, and our relationship to God and others. This view of education holds that God is central in life and everything else has existence only in relationship to Him.
Our goal at Life Christian Academy is to provide a Christian education in a framework of academic excellence. The teachers are fully qualified in their area of teaching and take a loving, yet firm approach with each of their students along with personal interest in each child. Therefore, Christian School is not a luxury, but a blessing and should be a matter of prayerful consideration for each Christian parent.
