PHILOSOPHY OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AT CCS
The Bible instructs parents to bring children up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Proverbs 22:6). Neither the Church nor the State has been given this task. Parents call upon the assistance of schools, churches, and other services to supplement, not supplant, their God-given authority.
Christian Community School seeks to provide a program of teaching and learning that will enable each student to relate to Jesus Christ and see Him as the source of all wisdom and understanding. For an education to be truly Christian, a student must discover life through a view of the world that is biblical. Problem-solving, decision-making, interpretation, and analysis, are based upon absolute truth, revealed only in the Bible.
CCS seeks to bring into balance the strengthening of intellect, character, and spirit (Matthew 22:37). Quality work and high standards are emphasized.
ACADEMIC PHILOSOPHY & GOALS
For an education to be truly Christian, thinking, problem solving, decision making, communicating, understanding and discovering must be based upon God’s Word.
The focus of our curriculum is to bring into balance and relationship all the important areas of study - Bible, English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts – and to encourage each student to master basic skills in each, expand and compensate for his/her God-given strengths and weaknesses, and prepare to fulfill his/her calling into service for the Lord Jesus Christ.
Following are the academic goals Christian Community School has established in accordance with this philosophy:
To promote high academic standards within the potential of the individual as uniquely created by God and to help the student realize his full academic potential.
To help each student gain a thorough comprehension and command of the fundamental processes used in communicating and dealing with others, such as reading, writing, speaking, listening and mathematics.
To teach and encourage the use of good study habits.
To teach the student how to do independent research and to reason logically.
To motivate the student to pursue independent study in areas of personal interest.
To develop creative and critical thinking and proper use of biblical criteria for evaluation.
To promote good citizenship through developing the understanding and appreciation of our Christian and American heritages of responsible freedom, human dignity and acceptance of authority.
To discuss current affairs in all fields and relate them to God’s plan for man.
To produce an understanding and appreciation for God’s world, an awareness of man’s role in his environment and his God-given responsibilities to use and preserve it properly.
To engender an appreciation of the fine arts through the development of the student’s understanding and personal expression.
