As a community of faith and learning we seek to combine a rich academic environment with a climate that encourages deep and meaningful spiritual growth. Spiritual development most often weaves its way throughout each component of our curriculum. However, we intentionally carve out times for each student to explore Christian worship and spiritual growth in curricularly driven, spiritually focused programs.
Chapel is a bi-weekly curricular exploration of Christian worship. Students and faculty gather to walk through lectionary led scripture readings, prayers, creeds, songs of praise and hymns, and sermons from local pastors and church leaders. Students are given the opportunity to engage with speakers in a time of dialogue at the end of the service.
Beginning in 6th grade, character education roots itself in the belief that God has called us to be great citizens. Our character education curriculum develops young men and women into citizens who can transform their culture as Christian-worldview thinkers.
We foster a culture of spiritual hunger and provide outlets for students to find what they need. As a result, students looking for further spiritual development have reached out to faculty to lead bible studies and intentional discipleship programs both in the middle and upper grades.
Upperclassmen model the Christian life for our younger students through daily life. However, the best support for formal mentoring relationships for development come from our house system, prefect leadership, and the honor council.
