Why Christian Education

Proverbs 22:6 says "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." 


      It is upon this premise that Kingsway Academy School stands. Understanding that children ought to be trained in the way they should go, Christian education allows the molding of a child's mind, consequently affecting the way they think ( to think Christ-like - to gain the mind of Christ). Christian education is based on the 'Word of God', which is the basis for all understanding.

 

       Christian education focuses on educating students from a Biblical Worldview, and teaches students how to think and make decisions based upon Biblical principles as taught in the Bible.  It means that we teach students to think hard and well about current events, trends and philosophies. In the world of science, students are taught that God is creator and sustainer of all things. History reminds students that God is an Omnipotent God who knows the end from the beginning. By examining every subject in the light of God's Word, Christian education prepares students to successfully live the Christian life in a world that is increasingly antagonistic toward God and resistant to accountability.


       A child's teacher is an important role model, and since a child spends a major portion of the day under the influence of a teacher, a Christian school exposes children to teachers whose life compels an open, unashamed love and commitment to Jesus Christ. The Christian ethics and morals expounded in your home and church are reinforced in the classroom of a Christian school.


       While the positive influence of a child's peers has no substitute, another reason for Christian education is to allow children the opportunity to magnify the Biblical standard of true friends. Character building, positive influences and gaining a higher standard of conduct are benefits garnered from exposure to Christian education.


       With strict standards of behavior enforced and high academic standards expected, a Christian school provides your child excellent opportunities for a successful future. Christian Education is an eternal investment, in view of the fact that the Word of God is the root of Christian education where children are equipped with wisdom and direction.
