Our Philosophy of Education
Our philosophy of education is a theology of education, because it is built on Biblical principles. Pertinent passages of Scripture are Deuteronomy 6:5-7, Ephesians 4:11-16 and Romans 12:1-2.
According to Deuteronomy 6:5-7, all education, and especially Christian education, begins in the home. Parents are the primary developers of a child's education. This responsibility cannot be taken from them, nor can they give it away.
Ephesians 4:11-16 teaches that God has given some the gift of teaching. Their responsibility is to "equip the students for works of service." They do not take the parents' place, but become a "para-parent" for the students.
Our ultimate goal in Christian education is found in Romans 12:1-2. This Scripture enables us to help the students be transformed by the renewing of their minds, so they will be able to test and approve what God's will is for them. This renewing is always based on a student's submission to the Lordship of Jesus.
The academic standards of North County Christian School are secondary to the primary responsibility to educate children in light of Scripture, according to our faith. This does not mean that academics are of little importance. We have a higher academic standard than many schools, because Christians should exemplify only the highest standards.
We trust you will find the education at North County Christian School the best available to you and your family. We are constantly improving our educational programs. Our hope is that together we can increase in knowledge, wisdom, and spiritual growth.
