Philosophy of Education
The educational philosophy of Heritage Christian School is dependent upon the Bible, the inerrant, infallible Word of God, as our basis and reference for all truth (II Tim. 3:16). It is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
The educational process is viewed as a means used by the Holy Spirit to bring the student to God through personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and to develop a Christian mind to fulfill God’s will for his life, both vocationally and personally (Col. 2:3). Through this process the student can mature spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally, and socially to be a Christian witness in our society (Luke 2:52).
The mandate for Christian education comes from God directing His people to teach their children diligently the laws of the Lord (Deuteronomy 6:7). The Christian school acts as an extension of the family and of the church to help families bring up their children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4)
