Philosophy of Education
Brazos Christian School bases its educational philosophy on a Christian world view which comes from the truths of the Christian faith found in the infallible, inerrant, and inspired Word of God. The Bible is authoritative, reliable, and the final source of truth.
We believe God created, sustains, and will consummate all things through his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, the universe and all life are dynamically related to Him and have the purpose of glorifying Him.
Man is created in God’s image and therefore of infinite worth. He is also a sinner by nature and by choice because of the fall of Adam. As such, he is separated from God and incapable of knowing or glorifying God apart from a work of reconciliation by God through the atoning death of Jesus Christ. Man can be reconciled to God only by being born again through receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord by faith.
Education can most effectively be accomplished in an environment which recognizes that all truth is God’s truth. The fear of the Lord is the foundation of all wisdom and knowledge, and only a redeemed person can fully comprehend truth as the Holy Spirit reveals it to him. In the curricula, an emphasis on the unity of all truth and on the development of an eternal perspective for life naturally follows.
A Brazos Christian education strives to develop the whole child and therefore offers a balance in instruction so that students may grow in knowledge, skills, and wisdom which ground young people the rest of their lives for living as God has designed, free to choose with wisdom and act with love.
Scripture clearly teaches that parents are responsible for their children’s education and discipline. The school is not a substitute for the home, but is an extension of the home and one means through which parents fulfill the responsibility the Lord has given them.
