Educational Philosophy

Believing that God has given parents the mandate to rear children according to the truths of God’s Word (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Ephesians 6:4), the philosophy of SRCS is that education begins in the home and is advanced in the Christian school as an extension of parental authority and participation. Christian education involves testing and integrating knowledge according to a biblically-based worldview (Colossians 1:16-17; John 1:3). Thus, God’s Word is infused into every aspect of the school program. SRCS partners with parents in educating students for lives of fellowship with God and service to others based on the inspired Word of God (Psalm 78:4; 2 Timothy 3:16-17). The Christian teacher, empowered by the Holy Spirit, guides and nurtures students through instruction, admonition, and personal example. The Christian teacher also seeks to encourage the spiritual development of students in their academic, social, and personal growth (Colossians 1:28: Proverbs 1:7) SRCS desires to provide excellence in the quality of education offered to children so they can impact the world for Christ and bring glory to God. This educational philosophy coincides with the Kingdom Education Principles (see addendum).
