ABOUT VALLEY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” Luke 2:52
At the heart of the Christian philosophy of education is the reality that God, who revealed Himself as a Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is at the center of all life.
God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things; He maintains control over his entire universe and is the Source of all truth. Because of sin man does not naturally seek God and fails to relate himself and his knowledge to God, the Source of all wisdom. The Bible is the authority by which all knowledge is measured.
God creates persons having physical, mental and spiritual qualities. Christian education is committed to addressing the needs of the whole child by creating an environment designed to assist children in achieving their God given potential.
The Bible places primary responsibility for the training and education of children upon their parents. The Christian School defines its role, not as a substitute for, but as an extension of home and church.
