The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is the basis for teaching the faith, giving direction to one’s life, and training a person in right living. (II Timothy 3:16)
Therefore, on this basis the philosophy of Fresno Christian Schools is grounded in the following beliefs:
- The home, church and school should complement each other in promoting the student’s spiritual, academic, moral, psycho-social and physical growth.
- At school, the teacher represents the extension of authority and discipline as an agent of the parent.
- God has given differing abilities to each student. It is the teacher’s responsibility to challenge each student according to this ability and seek to develop the student’s full potential.
- The student’s home, church and school experiences and training should be a preparation for a life of fellowship with God and of service to others.
- Students should be encouraged to become spiritually mature and grow into Christ-likeness.
- Learning involves interaction between people, and that a well-rounded education involves exposure to a variety of cultures, ideas, and issues, all of which are to be interpreted by the light of God’s Word.
- Every teacher should participate in professional growth for the purpose of improving the program of the school while fulfilling its mission.
