“Train up a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
PHILOSOPHY – AIM – OBJECTIVES
Antioch Christian Academy is established and operated in obedience to God’s command to “nurture your children in the ways of the Lord.” God instituted the church and family and gave us the responsibility for instruction so that His promise of redemption would be passed throughout the generations.
Our educational aim is to place God first in the child’s life. The whole child is educated to be Christian in all the God-created aspects of his/her life; spiritual, mental, physical, and social/emotional. As a child learns each must come to know, to enjoy, and to serve God according to his/her God-given abilities. Christian education is for the Christian life. This is Christ-centered education.
We are dedicated to upholding the following objectives:
To confront each child with his/her need to recognize the Lordship of Christ in a personal way and the need to live a Christ-like life.
To establish a set of moral values by which the child will be able to filter the experiences that confront him in later life and help him make his faith usable.
To train the child in the formal knowledge of God’s Word, and responsibility to God’s world.
To develop in each child the highest possible degree of proficiency in all branches of learning and skill of communication, with every phase thoroughly Christ-centered.
To develop a truly Christian personality through counseling, curriculum, and extra-curricular.
