Philosophy of Education

God’s Word is the source of true knowledge. It is the soil from which all other knowledge grows. To start with any other source would rob any instructed subject matter of it’s richness.

East Hill Christian School is committed to a doctrine which supports the infallibility of Scripture, that the Bible is the ultimate authority against which all evidence is examined. The educational philosophy is Christ-centered. We believe that the Bible has unique relevance to the development of the whole person and assign priority to its instruction in all academic disciplines. Teachers are well credentialed and profess a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. The learning environment is loving, supportive, and reflects the highest standards of scholarship. We believe that the student should find the classroom exciting, imaginative, disciplined and a vital laboratory which nurtures creativity, individuality of thought and spiritual development.

We believe that it is important for every student to know the subject matter content of a traditional curriculum which incorporates English, Math, Science and History. As important however, is the development of critical decision skills which are anchored in the Word of God. It is our belief that the East HIll Christian School approach to education will plant the seeds of Godly wisdom into the developing mind of the student and that these seeds will germinate, in later years, to provide for a life which is intrinsically rewarding and brings honor to the person of Christ.

We believe that the Word of God has unique relevance to the process of educating this nation’s youth. When properly integrated into a curriculum, we believe that the Bible provides the students with competencies which are vital to the process of thriving in the world today. East Hill Christian School admits students of any race, color, and/or national origin in the administration of educational policies, admissions procedures, scholarship programs, athletics, or any school-related activities.
