ACADEMICS

 

Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLRs)

Mentor the Heart
Mentor the heart of the student to make a life-long decision to follow Christ.

  • Know and love the triune God, value others, and impact the world for their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
  • Produce evidence of a strong moral character and a lifestyle that demonstrates the virtues of Temperance, Perseverance, Discipline, Faith, Love, Patience, Courage, Humility, Trustworthiness, Justice, Wisdom, Respect, Responsibility, Compassion, and Citizenship
    • Romans 10:8-10
      But what does it say? {Moses in Deuteronomy 30:14} “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    • Ephesians 3:14-22
      For this reason {that our new identity makes us the dwelling place of God} I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Nurture the Soul
Nurture the soul of the student by instilling a Christian Worldview through Biblical integration in all areas of life.

  • Exhibit a knowledge of the Bible in both breadth and depth
    • Colossians 3:16-17
      Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.  And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
    • Hebrews 4:12
      For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
  • Analyze secular and Christian viewpoints
    • Colossians 2:8
      Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
    • Romans 12:2
      And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
  • Apply biblical principles in relation to ethical, philosophical, and practical areas of life
    • 1 Corinthians 10:31
      Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Instruct the Mind
Instruct the mind of the student through the implementation of current and relevant Biblically-based academics.

  • Demonstrate personal responsibility in the learning process
    • Romans 12:3-6
      For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.  For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them:
  • Set high standards and engage in continuous improvement
    • 1 Corinthians 11:1
       Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.
  • Demonstrate the ability to access and synthesize information from diverse sources, test hypotheses, solve problems, and form conclusions based on relevant, reliable data and information based on principles from the Word of God
  • Identify and assess problems and find solutions using complex reasoning processes such as comparison, classification, induction, deduction, analysis, synthesis, investigation, inquiry, and invention in real life situations
  • Demonstrate effective written, oral, technological, and collaborative communication skills and possess the foundational knowledge necessary for successfully pursuing an academic discipline in advanced education

Engage the Hands and Feet
Engage the hands and feet of the student in God’s mission, here and around the world.

  • Identify and categorize information
  • Analyze, synthesize, and evaluate data
  • Make sound, logical judgments
    • 1 Corinthians 14:20
      Brethren, do not be children in understanding; however, in malice be babes, but in understanding be mature.
    • 1 Timothy 6:20
      O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge—
  • Recognize and critique the biases of others as well as their own
    • Ephesians 4:20-25
      But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.  Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another.
  • Express themselves creatively through art, drama, world language, music, or sports.

Prepared for Life
Guide the student through diverse experiences that build responsibility and develop leadership.

  • Model responsible Christian behavior in all aspects of life
  • Actively demonstrate the investment of their resources (whether intellectual, spiritual, or monetary) to the benefit of others and to the glory of God
    • 1 Peter 4:10
      As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
