Education should impact the heart, head and hands of the individual.

Our Philosophy of Christian Education

Our philosophy of education flows from our visionary’s philosophy of life. As a Christian, our visionary believes that God and His created universe are real. God is good, kind, merciful gracious, longsuffering and eternal. He is the source and sustainer of all creation and the redeemer of all sinful men by faith in Jesus Christ as recorded in the Holy Bible. We hold these beliefs true as a Christian school. We therefore believe that the world and all that therein is were created by God and that all natural laws of order which guide the universe were put in place by Him. We believe in the reality of the seen and unseen realms as reflection of God’s splendor and majesty. We believe heaven and hell are real. We believe God created man in His image and likeness. Although flawed by Sin due to man’s fall from grace, and marred by its consequences, all of mankind is redeemable by faith in Jesus Christ. We believe in God’s redemptive plan initiated through the immaculate conception and resulting birth of Jesus Christ, modeled through His life, executed in His death and resurrection, subscribed to through faith in His finished work and culminating in His second coming. We believe in God’s eternal judgment, His righteousness and divine justice as shown in the reward of the righteous and the punishment of the unrighteous. We believe that God is the source of all knowledge and that He created all men with the capacity to learn and know. Men can come to know by divine inspiration, careful study, diligent observation, vivid experiences, scientific experimentation, timely maturity, precise instructions and wise counseling.

We believe that God is the author of truth. He is the definition of truth and His word is the revelation and communication of the truth. We believe that truth is absolute, not relative, and that God’s laws and commands as contained in the entire volume of scripture are the definition of the standard for what is right and what is wrong. We also believe that human attitudes and character can be correctly shaped by God’s word: He defines what is best and He has given us His word to help us accurately discern this. We therefore consider God’s word as the backbone of our procedures and methods towards fulfilling our stated purpose for education.

Our Philosophy of Education is hinged on scriptures. According to Ephesians 2:10…[NLT] “For we are God’s masterpiece, He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.

… we believe that every child has been created by God with the capacity to learn, excel and express themselves as unique individuals. We believe every child is a star in his/her own right. Therefore, we offer every child put in our care equal opportunity to learn while respecting their unique abilities and peculiarities to the end that they are shaped into lovers of God and humanity, excellent people and highly skilled in all wisdom as world-class leaders. This is the kind of education we offer.

The primary responsibility of education to children is learning. Based upon this conviction, our institution is devoted to promoting learning which shapes attitude and character, imparts skill and life relevance, and develops the child’s mind to create, innovate, solve problems, analyze and keep learning. We believe in engaging the best methods towards achieving our aim of education. We promote a learning that is based on biblical principles, delivered by skilled teachers.


Jer. 3:15 [HCSB] says, “And I will give you shepherds who are loyal to me, and they will shepherd you with knowledge and skill.

We provide godly and highly skilled leadership and instructors, and a safe, friendly, orderly, and intellectually stimulating environment supported by a rich partnership with the home, which is essential for children to become healthy, responsible, tolerant, excellent, honorable, respectful and lifelong learners.

We believe that every learner can flourish under a good teacher. We therefore define a good teacher, based on our conviction, as one who exhibits Christ-like character. He/she must be a master of knowledge, persistent, resilient, and creative in lesson delivery and assessment. We believe that a good teacher must be caring and affectionate towards learners, firm in correction and discipline, passionate in the discharge of his/her duties, bold and authoritative, and responsible for the learners put in his/her care. A good teacher must be an authentic individual and a role model. We believe that the primary role of the teacher is to ensure learning is taking place through a viable curriculum and education philosophy implementation.

Our interpretation of our biblically integrated curricula leans on our philosophy of education as stated herein. We therefore believe in curricula which focus on process, content, and learner activities and which communicates knowledge of the world from a biblical worldview. Learning is achieved by eliciting knowledge from learners through engaging activities and demonstrations, directly dispensing information and learner directed proficiency assessment which is both formative and summative.

we believe the learning environment should be orderly but flexible enough to allow dynamisms such as group/collaborative learning. There should be sternness enforced through biblical discipline, and the environment should be businesslike. We believe that everyone in the school community can learn to be thoughtful and considerate of words and action, and to intentionally employ thinking tools towards increased learner achievement and overall general satisfaction.

Finally, we believe there are three key stake holders in every child’s education: the family, the government and the church. As a school recognized by the law of the land, we stand in representation of the government. As a Christian school also, we partner with the Body of Christ to ensure our children are raised in the ways of Christ. We are also active partners with the families our learners belong to. We will therefore work with families exploiting every possible opportunity to ensure we deliver on our aim for education.

We believe our philosophy of education hereby shared, will guarantee the delivery of our aim of education which is to shape individuals into lovers of God and mankind with a strong drive to live excellent lives in line with God’s purpose, while making meaningful impact in their world. We also believe our philosophy justifies our purpose of existence as indicated by our vision statement and expressed in our mission statement.
