We believe the best education is Christ-centered. Christ should be our example in every area of our lives; therefore, we are to teach and train our children in this manner. We feel that this Christ-centered educational philosophy provides the best opportunity for our children to become mature Christians, responsible citizens, and better instruments for our Master’s use.
Our objective is to develop to the fullest extent, each student’s abilities, talents, and Christian character. Our curriculum is designed so that every student can progress at their own pace, thus they must develop self-discipline and responsibility for their actions, their progress, and accountability to God and man.
When God created the world and all that is in it, He declared its original state to be good. Man’s sin has caused the current fallen state of the world and all that is in it (Genesis chapters 1-3). Empowered by God, Christians in a fallen world must act as agents of redemption, helping to influence people and institutions in a direction for righteousness and goodness (Col. 1:20, II Cor. 5:17-18). Every person and institution created by God has redemptive qualities (II Cor. 5:17-18).
Canaanland Christian School is distinguished by its completely God-centered orientation of life. We acknowledge that our students are made in the image of God and are thus multifaceted beings. We address the multifaceted nature of the learner by engaging our students in activities that enrich them spiritually, academically, socially, artistically, and physically. Our goals are accomplished by engaging students in stimulating classroom activities that help them to learn about God’s creation. Our goals are also accomplished by activities outside of the classroom, such as field trips, extracurricular activities, and social events.
At CCS we recognize that the primary responsibility before God for a child’s education belongs to the parents. CCS partners with the family in providing a quality Christian education that will maximize each child’s God-given potential to make a positive impact in the world for the glory of God (Eph. 6:1-4).
