The School’s Vision
The purpose of Christian schooling is to work with the Christian family and church while presenting our covenant children a unified, distinctively Christian view of the world and their unique place in it as God’s people. Because Jesus Christ is sovereign Lord over all, He and His Word must be central and govern every area of life, especially our children’s schooling where they form their understanding of the world. Our goal is to help every student grow into a responsible citizen of our world, nation, state, and community; and a responsible citizen of Jesus Christ’s kingdom, willing and able to serve God and community.
Whereas the state has a secondary role in supporting and assisting parents in the provision and setting of standards for schooling, it is the parents to whom God has given the primary responsibility for their children’s education and training. Parents have the responsibility and privilege of choosing schooling that is consistent with their Christian convictions. The essential relationship for effective education is a bond of trust between home and school, with the support of Christ’s church.
Stephenville Christian School is committed to integrating biblical faith and learning, and to offering children a challenging education in a caring Christian atmosphere.
