School Philosophy and Mission Statement
PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
The philosophy of Faith Christian Academy of Georgetown, Texas is based on a God-centered view that all truth is God’s truth, and that the Bible is the inspired and the only infallible, authoritative Word of God that contains this truth. God created all things and sustains all things. Therefore, the universe and humanity are dynamically related to God and have the purpose of glorifying Him. Because humans are sinners by nature and choice, they cannot glorify or know God. A person can do this only by choosing God’s free gift of salvation through His Son, thereby committing his or her life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Our aim socially is to provide a Christian perspective on life and the world from which will come a balanced personality and proper understanding and acceptance of one’s role in life and home, at work, at play, and at worship – all grounded in the Christian concept of love.
This philosophy channels our energies to promoting high academic standards while helping students to achieve skills in creative and critical thinking, using the best integrated curriculum materials available. The objective of our instructional program is to enable students to pursue the postsecondary education of their choosing, whether college, university, or vocational training.
Our responsibility for the student encompasses the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional areas. These are inseparable, and through them all runs the thread of the spiritual. Therefore, it must be our aim to shun the tendency to teach the Bible compartmentally or on the intellectual level alone – the spiritual thread must be woven throughout the total curriculum.
It is apparent, then, that the types of activities we employ or permit in the classroom or school program will either facilitate, or militate against, our basic philosophy. The spiritual must permeate all areas – or else we become textbook oriented rather than student centered.
This philosophy dictates that we cooperate closely with parents in every phase of the student’s development, always offering assistance in understanding the purposes of the Christian school.
Write the vision and make it plain upon tables that he may run that readeth it. (Habakkuk 2:2)
The Word of God declares…
….that neither is there any Rock like our God. (1 Samuel 2:2)
….for they drank of that spiritual Rock and that Rock was Christ. (1 Corinthians 10:4)
Jesus said that if we would be a doer of the Word, dig deep and lay a foundation on the Rock then nothing could shake us (Luke 6:46-49). The Rock is the revealed Word of God.
Our vision is to birth, establish, and maintain a strong Word-oriented local church. Our desire is for the supernatural power of God to manifest in our services and in our personal lives.
Our overall objective is to train each person in every age group to reach their fullest potential in Christ Jesus our Lord (Ephesians 4:11-16).
Our vision is to train and equip people in the ministry of helps so that they may find their place in the body and in turn help meet the needs of others (1 Corinthians 12:28).
A church is a body and each part is dependent upon every other part. As each person takes their place of responsibility and service, the body will grow and much will be accomplished (1 Corinthians 12:12).
The mission of Faith Christian Academy of Georgetown is to assist Christian parents by providing a Bible-based, Christian education that inspires each student to pursue excellence – spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically – and to prepare students for a life grounded in God’s truth and directed by the Holy Spirit making the Word final authority.
I’m very thankful for the start of this new school. I know that my children will be able to get a quality education without compromising their relationship with God. These are benefits that are priceless.
