Our Educational Philosophy
For education to be meaningful, it must be based upon truth. Richmond Christian School believes that all truth is God’s Truth and His Truth is revealed through the Bible which is infallible and is the standard for living a successful life. Only by recognizing God as the Creator, Designer, and Organizer of the Universe can a proper understanding and mastery of facts and knowledge be possible.
Richmond Christian School believes that Christian education is a process in which teaching and learning are conducted and directed through developmentally appropriate activities by Christian teachers who believe that His Word has the highest authority and who strive to bring all knowledge into a living relationship with His Truth.
Richmond Christian School functions in a complementary role with the Christian home to provide, in an educational setting, opportunities which integrate and nurture each student’s spiritual, academic, social, physical, and emotional development.
Richmond Christian School desires to produce individuals who are capable of being productive members of society, contributing members within the body of Christ, and reflecting a Biblical worldview. Through our curriculum, extracurricular programs, athletics and activities, we strive to produce young people with hearts that seek God and minds that pursue truth.
