PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
Wesley Christian School began with the premise that true education comes from God. This premise is based on the fact that only Christian education deals with the dimensions of life viewed from a Biblical perspective. True education does not just present data, but relates everything to God’s plan for mankind.
In order for an educational program to be academically sound and instructionally effective, it must be founded upon Christian educational principles that recognize the true nature of God, of truth, of knowledge, and of man. Implicit in Christian education are these basic truths:
Man does possess a spiritual dimension. (Genesis 1:27)
Education involves the total being spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially. (Proverbs 9:9)
Each person possesses unique, individual potential, traits, and needs. (Romans 12:3-8)
The educational experience must involve the development of Christian beliefs, attitudes, and skills leading toward zealous application.
