Praise, Power and Prayer Christian School is dedicated to the glory of God and exists to help students grow spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically, and academically. We are committed to high moral standards and academic excellence with an academic philosophy based on the truth of Christ. We have high standards for our students, and we push them to achieve and excel in all areas. We believe that each child has the potential to do great things, and we consider it an honor to be allowed to assist them on that journey.
Students will be taught to recognize and appreciate language as a unique, God-given gift reflective of God's image stamped upon man. As God is a communicative being, so also is man, who is made in God's image. God has spoken; God has written. He gives these gifts to man also, to aid him in his tasks of subduing and ruling the earth as God's representatives. God has given this gift to all in the wealth of His common grace to mankind, not merely to Christians. However, only Christians who have come to know God through Jesus Christ can truly begin to appreciate this gift. Therefore, we work to be precise in grammar, creative and interesting in style, efficient and effective in oral and written communication, and thankful to God in the enjoyment of His gift of language.
Students will view math as a demonstration of God's orderliness, creativity, and precision in creation and will become proficient in the use of math as a tool given by God to aid man in subduing and ruling the earth as God's representatives.
Students will learn to view all of life's events - past, present, and future - as the outworking of God's eternal decree in time and space. Most importantly, our students will gain a biblical understanding of man's task upon the earth - to subdue and rule all of creation for God's glory. Man's willful rebellion against God occurred, radically affecting man's ability to accomplish this God-given mandate. Nevertheless, the task remains, and history records for us the story of how sinful man through the ages has approached this task. The Christian student should be challenged to view history from this biblical, God-centered perspective and approach society's current complex problems as responsible people still striving to rule God's world as His Godly representatives.
Students will begin to view science in its true, God-related perspectives as the study of God's natural revelation to man. Through the study of scientific principles and subjects detailed appropriately for each grade level, the student should be led to a greater understanding of and appreciation for God's creative and maintaining power in the universe around us.
The beginning of the universe and all its life will be viewed as creation from nothing but the spoken word of God in the space of six days with God's pronouncement of good upon it, as according to the account in Genesis.
