Since humankind's chief and highest end is to glorify God (Isaiah 43:7), the highest possible achievement for any child is to understand and obey God's plan and purpose. The Bible, the inerrant Word of God, directs parents to prepare their children to live godly lives. We believe that the school is an institution which provides assistance to parents in fulfilling this responsibility, thereby supplementing and/or complementing the training that child receives at home.
We believe that together the home, school, and other aspects of a child's experience educate the whole child in his preparation for adulthood. Since a child cannot be separated into isolated components, the school experience must address each of these interrelated components in educating a child. These areas include:
1. Spiritual - A child's relationship with the personal triune God of the Bible, the understanding of the nature of God, and an understanding of the spiritual nature of this world and humankind. (Romans 12:1&2)
2. Intellectual - The God-given attributes of a child which enable him or her to master foundational academic tasks (i.e., reading, mathematics, spelling, language, writing, etc.)
3. Social - Interaction with others, both adults and children, in groups and on an individual level. (Ephesians 6:4)
4. Emotional - The part of the child that identifies, understands, and deals with his/her emotional states as well as how a child feels about himself (self-esteem).
5. Physical - Abilities of a child to master gross motor and fine motor skills in the framework of the child's ever-changing body.
Therefore, each child not only has individual strengths and weaknesses, but also exhibits change and growth in each of the above areas. Because of this, we believe a developmental approach to education (i.e., assessing each child's development on an individual level) is essential to maximize the potential of each child. (Proverbs 22:6)
As we acknowledge that God has planned individually for every child, and that His plan has allowed adults, parents and teachers, the privilege of serving Him in the raising of children, we desire His guidance for all that will be done to fulfill our responsibility to educate children. (Deuteronomy 6:1-3; Titus 2:1-8)
Champion Christian School’s biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home to mold students to be Christlike. On occasion, the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home may be counter or in opposition to the biblical lifestyle the Christian school teaches. This includes, but it not necessarily limited to, sexual immorality, homosexual sexual orientation, or inability to support the moral principles of the school. In such cases, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student. (Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:27)
