Philosophy of Education
The philosophy of education at Family Life Academy is based on a Christ-centered view that all truth is God’s truth and that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God containing the truth. Further, God is the creator and sustainer of all there is. We should therefore pay attention, be interested in, and desire to know our role in what He has made. We understand that “to have the mind of Christ” (I Corinthians 2:16) is to be obedient to God’s revelation. Therefore, we must seek to understand His revelation to the fullest.
We know that children are a gift of God to a husband and wife; however, it is a gift that includes responsibilities. Bringing up and educating a child is primarily the responsibility of parents. Family Life Academy exists, therefore, to assist in that education, without replacing the family’s role.
Our responsibility to the student encompasses the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional areas. We, therefore, avoid the strictly compartmentalized teaching of “The Bible” and weave Biblical truth throughout the comprehensive curriculum.
