Our theme this year is
At San Jose Christian each individual student is nurtured by our intentional Christian community. Well-qualified and credentialed teachers offer each and every student an outstanding and well-balanced education based on a curriculum infused with Biblical principles.
In addition to the expected high academic standards, students are given a lot of food for thought on the spiritual and affective levels. For example, the 7th graders start the year with an overnight Spiritual Retreat in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains during which they learn more of their true identity as beloved children of God.
On the academic side, this is our second year of implementing the new math curriculum, Connected Math. We thank God for the gift of mathematics, and for a new avenue along which to appreciate His creation.
The mantra of our Middle School's popular 1-1 laptop initiative is "Teach, not Ban" --- students are encouraged to embrace technology for its positive potential in helping us acquire skills in research, collaboration, communication, and creativity, while becoming wise and discerning digital citizens. In fact, we would like our students to go out, engage and transform culture for God's glory --- not only in the future, but starting today!
All this is happening daily as students use the Internet to do research, share information via GoogleDocs, create iMovies, Google Earth Tours, electronic books, and programmed animation, to mention but a few.
Let's work together to make our words be a blessing to others. Let's Speak Life!!
