What if a student learned one principle that Jesus taught every week? That would be 36 principles in a school year. What if those 36 principles were reinforced through thirteen years of schooling? That would be life changing.
Jesus taught principles: forgiveness, contentment, foundations, asking and receiving, self-denial, light bearing, and so much more. At CCS, we are identifying and teaching the principles of the Kingdom of God. Children are so receptive to God’s truth presented, not legalistically, but as life-giving truth.
Our task is to train world changers and it starts with seeking first Christ and His kingdom. Academia, fine arts, athletics, all are arenas of life that give opportunity to seek God and His ways. A new generation is rising – students that have chosen not to conform to this world but be transformed by the renewing of their minds. (Romans 12:2) A new life requires new thinking. The principles of Jesus are where we start.
The term “Christian School” means different things to different people. To the CCS community it means…
1. A Christian philosophy of education that sets at the heart of all learning, the Word of God. It goes beyond adding a few Bible verses or “Christianized” content to actually centering academic content on Biblical principles that form a Kingdom of God worldview.
2. Content: Biblical principles, the virtues, character education, core academics, elective subjects.
3. Methodology: Kingdom First approach to learning, The Trivium, cooperative learning, mixed age learning, Socratic method.
4. Motivators: Classroom teacher, parents/coaches, older students, biographies of great people.
Christian Community School is seeking families that take seriously the desire to educate children in the ways of God. Families are encouraged to visit our campus, meet some great people, and start the journey. Call us at 440-748-6224. God bless you.
