Covenant Christian Schools

CPC Education Ministry Mission

To blend the strengths of home-based and classroom education in a covenant Christian community, while nurturing genuine love for learning and understanding of creation.

Our Educational Philosophy

Virtually everyone holds that education should provide students with the basic building blocks of knowledge to use throughout their lives. This is the point where debate and disagreement usually begins. What are those building blocks? We believe that education is the pursuit of God’s truth as it is revealed in Scripture and nature. It is therefore a thoroughly religious endeavor, for from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. The Christian education of covenant children is all about teaching them to ask, “What is it saying and is it true?” What does the historical account through the ages actually say about the nature of God and the nature of man? A wise teacher trains students to think about these things through biblical filters as citizens of the kingdom of God living to glorify and enjoy Him. “For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ…” (2 Co 10:4) every historical thought, every artistic thought, every mathematical thought. Finally, the true mark of a quality education is not simply a mind full of facts or the ability to reason, write or debate well. It is the instilling of a hunger to continue accumulating knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. For when children are taught to seek after God in this manner, they will indeed find Him and honor and glorify Him in the process.
