Philosophy of Education

The Upper School:

  • Challenges students academically in preparation for the rigors of university education and the pursuit of being a lifelong learner.
  • Develops the ability to think critically, become problem solvers, and increase capacity toward mature decision making.
  • Helps students develop their individual gifts and talents in realization of the potential given to them by God.


Pedagogical Foundations

  • We teach individuals.
  • Community is vital in developing the whole student.
  • Learning is a shared process requiring hard work and risk-taking.
  • Learning is best when students' skills are applied and exhibited.                          
  • Students learn best when responsible, self-motivated, and self-evaluating.

Upper School Teachers

Teachers are committed to:

  • Modeling Christ-like character and proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Creating an atmosphere of safety, care, and respect.
  • Pursuing professional development.
  • Developing godly character in students.


Our goals are to help students:

  • Think and communicate clearly, logically, and creatively.
  • Identify and appreciate differing gifts, talents, and learning styles in themselves and others.
  • Find self worth and confidence by developing a Biblical world view and godly character.
  • Discover the joy in a life of discipline and order.
  • Learn to love, respect, and serve others.

  • Seekers of Truth and respectful of others.
