Philosophy of Education
ICHS operates under the premise that all truth is God’s truth (Psalms 31:5); therefore, God’s Word is the starting point for all that is taught. All truth, whether known or unknown by man, comes from God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. In addition to the study of God’s word, God’s creation is systematically studied in the Christian School curriculum. The study of man’s language, literature, artistic achievements, record of history, logic of mathematical reasoning, natural sciences, and cultural expressions are done from this perspective – God’s word is true. This permeates all subject matter, and is taught by persons who adhere to this Christian worldview.
As Christian educators, a diversity of methods and means are used to produce well educated students. Christian methodology rejects any method contrary to the principles of Scripture. The Christian teacher stands as a representative of God (1 Thess 1:6) and the character and conduct of faculty is important. In addition, mastery of subject and resourcefulness in presentation is essential. Faculty must also display a servant’s heart and loving authority over the students. All faculty must be a born again Christian and subscribe to the school’s doctrinal position.
