Our Philosophy of Education

About Us

The educational philosophy of Crosspoint Christian School is based on a God-centered view of man and truth as presented in the Holy Scriptures: God created and designed all of creation through His Son Jesus Christ for the purpose of glorifying Him. This is especially true of man, who was created in the image of God, different from all other creation, with the unique ability to know and respond to God personally and voluntarily. Man, being born in a sinful state, is not able to know or honor God in this condition. He can enter into a personal fellowship with God only by being born again through receiving Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord. Then through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, man is able to live a holy life and to do the will of God, which is the ultimate purpose for his life.

The entire process of education is seen as a means to bring the student into fellowship with God, to develop in him the "mind of Christ" (Philippians 2:5), and to train him in Godly truth that "he may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works" (2 Timothy 3:17), so that he can fulfill the purpose of God in his life personally and vocationally. God's Word is the avenue that must be used to teach him about the nature of God and his own nature. He must be developed and related to God as a whole person; spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially. He must be taught God's truth is the only truth and to use it as the standard by which all knowledge is processed. He must be educated as an individual to his fullest potential with his own unique abilities and personality to learn to live and work with others at home, in the church, and in a changing secular society. His educational role models and guides (his parents and teachers) must be born again and must be committed to this perspective on life.

The authority for such an education comes both from God's command that children be taught to love God and to place Him first in their lives and from the fact that parents are responsible for the total education and training of their child. At the parents' request, Crosspoint Christian School becomes a partner in giving this education; thus, the administration, teachers, and parents become mutually accountable to one another to implement this philosophy.
