Christian education is meant to bring every student we engage to a more complete knowledge of who Christ is, with the prayer that the Holy Spirit’s work will provide the faith necessary so that our students may love God and bring glory to him in each facet of life. Simply put, Christianity is a deeply intellectual endeavor and so must be Christian education. Please understand, it is not only an intellectual endeavor, but the mind plays a major role, alongside of the heart, in understanding and acknowledging Jesus as Lord of all.


At the heart of Christian education is a mandate to know our Lord. At the heart of being a Christian educator there must therefore be an understanding that we have a very specific role in the life of a child and in the coming alongside of families who have entrusted their children to our care. We are called to train the mind, while simultaneously engaging and stirring the heart. Christian schooling is not an either or proposition, but rather, a both/and mandate.
