The Foundation Is God


Christian School Philosophy is founded in God, His character and His truth. Christian teachers  seek to take children beyond knowledge to wisdom (Proverbs 4:5).  True wisdom is founded in a right understanding of God.  Reverence for God is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7).  It is the aim of a Christian school to draw children into a right relationship with God through a right understanding of his character, his thoughts and his acts.  God has revealed himself through the Bible, Jesus Christ and His Creation (Romans 1:20; 1 Timothy 1:10)  We hold the Bible as the standard of truth by which we are held accountable.  It shows us the person of Jesus Christ and outlines a right understanding of Creation.

    I would agree that most Christian schools do try to seek to take children beyond to wisdom, Godly wisdom. But i wonder why some “Christian schools” are so un-Christ like. I don’t know why some of the meanest people i have met have come from a christian school. Is it the teachers, or the culture the school is set it, what makes some Christian school better or more Christ like then others? ALEX GOREHAM
