Columbia Christian Schools
Educational Philosophy

Columbia Christian Schools believes education is an opportunity to demonstrate love for God. As Jesus instructs his disciples, humans are to love God with all of their minds, as well as their hearts, souls and strength (Mt. 22:37).

The education God desires, furthermore, is an education steeped in truth and the fear of the Lord. Scripture instructs humans the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Prov. 1:7), and Jesus declares, “I am the way, the truth and the life” (Jn. 14:6).

Columbia Christian Schools centers its curriculum, therefore, around Bible classes at all levels and an integration of scriptural truth in all subjects.

Further, Columbia Christian Schools believes a complete education provides students not only knowledge but also the tools to acquire knowledge, the tools of learning. In this case, Columbia Christian instructs students in critical thinking through reading, writing, analytical assignments and classroom discussions.

Finally, Columbia Christian Schools believes a complete education incorporates mental as well as physical, social and spiritual instruction. The curriculum CCS offers provides opportunities for exercise of the mind as well as the body, for individual as well as corporate study, for spiritual as well as social growth.
