2. DOES OUR FAMILY NEED TO BE CHRISTIAN TO ATTEND?

No. However, our school will present a Christian world-view that is grounded on Holy Scripture, guided by the Holy Spirit, and expressed in the historic creeds of Christianity. We believe that an understanding of God as creator and a knowledge of his saving purpose in history through Jesus Christ underlies all learning pursuits. As Saint Augustine said (fifth century), "Every good and true Christian should understand that wherever he may find truth it is the Lord's." We will strive to provide a spiritual and moral environment by our commitment to Christian values and by the personal example of the teachers, administrators and staff. In a true educational environment the spiritual and intellectual life of a student should be intertwined and complementary.
