Our Philosophy of Education

The primary responsibility for educating a child lies with the parent, not with the state, the church, or other institutions. The parents may delegate their God-given responsibility for the education of their children to those who are called to a ministry of teaching.  Christian education embraces the nurturing of children in the truth of the Word of God as well as preparing them in various academic disciplines. Divine truth, as revealed in Jesus Christ, permeates all academic disciplines. Christian education offers a clear-cut philosophical alternative to public education without condemning the latter. 

Christian education:

The Mission of Trinity Christian School is to educate and develop the whole person for the glory of God by providing an atmosphere of academic excellence within a Christian, interdenominational, family-centered framework.

All teachers and staff members of Trinity should be Christians who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and have a positive witness in both word and deed. All teachers of Trinity Christian School should possess sound academic credentials, manifest the gifts of the Spirit, and recognize their teaching as a call from God.

The philosophy of education at Trinity Christian School should complement and be consistent with the philosophy of the Christian home and church. Children in a Christian school are taught Christian concepts that commensurate with their level of ability and spiritual development.

Trinity Christian School should be a manifestation of the unity of the body of Christ amidst diversity of expression. (Ephesians 4:4-7)
