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