Spiritual Life

One of the primary ways that our school expresses its Christian identity is through our weekly chapel services.  We hold chapel service on Thursday morning for the upper school (grades 6-12) and Friday morning for the lower school (grades R-1 and 2-5).  The chapel program offers both students and staff a chance to worship God through song, recite Scripture memorized in class, listen to God’s Word preached, and perform in skits. Chapel speakers include our teaching staff as well as guest speakers from outside the academy.  Parents are always invited to join us for our weekly worship.

 

We believe that the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, and thus it holds a high position in our school.  We teach Bible as a subject in every grade level of our school, with each year covering a different portion: from the Old Testament to the New Testament.  Special focus is given to developing Christian character in our students, understanding the perfect life and redemptive work of Jesus, and developing hearts that love God and love others.  

A key part of the Bible curriculum is Scripture Memory. As a school, we believe that memorizing God’s Word as children and young adults will not only change lives now, but provides a formative influence on our students long after they have moved on from our school.  With that in mind, students in all grades are required to memorize key Bible verses every week throughout the year.  These verses are tied to the topics covered in class and accompanied by discussion on the meaning and importance of the verse/s.  Student memorization is closely tracked throughout the year and awards are given at the end of the year.
