The philosophy of education at New Hope Christian School rests on these three fundamental principles:

  1.  True knowledge is impossible without a recognition of God (Proverbs 1:7; Romans 18-23). God, the Creator of heaven and earth, cannot be separated from history, literature, mathematics, science, or any other academic discipline.  
  2. God calls His people into a grace relationship with Himself (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9; Corinthians 10:31). Christian education must strive to acknowledge, understand and nurture each individual’s God given abilities and use these abilities to God’s glory.
  3. Parents are to bring up and train their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Deuteronomy 6:4-7; Ephesians 6:4; Proverbs 22:6). 

In all areas of education, NHCS has several goals:

-Develop a love for learning and assist each child to achieve his or her academic potential.

-Assist each child in developing his/her relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20).

-Teach all subjects as an integrated whole with Christ and the Scriptures at the center (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

-Understand and cherish each child as unique with his or her own strengths and learning preferences.

-Emphasize grammar, logic and rhetoric – rules, relationships and expression – in all subjects.

-Exemplify a Biblical Christian life through the teachers and administration (Matthew 22:37-40).
