What do we value?
We believe that everything comes from and exists for God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit. We teach and live out of our values:
GRACE – treating others with kindness, forgiveness and respect.
GROWTH – showing growth in our learning, strength and courage.
GRATITUDE – being grateful, happy and satisfied.
GENUINENESS – being truthful, real and humble.
GENEROSITY – by giving, sharing and helping.
What is a Foundation for Life?
In Matthew 7:24-27 we read Jesus’ words: “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock”. We desire that all of our students are given an understanding and opportunity to develop a personal relationship with God. We teach the truth of the Bible and encourage one another to live a life that is lined up to God’s Word. We believe the foundations a person puts down will set up the theme and focus of his or her whole life. It is for this reason we want our children to enter High School with a Foundation for Life based on God’s unconditional, unchanging love for each one of us.
Why do we want to create an environment of discovery where God, people and purpose connect?
We want our school to be a creative and stimulating environment for our students. We want each young person to discover God and to celebrate His creativity. We value people as a part of God’s creation and we believe that we are all created in God’s image and, therefore, are all worthy of respect. We believe God designs each of us with a purpose in mind and we desire to develop this understanding in our students. In Ephesians 2:10 in The Message translation of the Bible we read that God “creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join Him in the work He does, the good work He has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing”.
