Educational Philosophy

Levelland Christian School believes in:

1. Spiritual Salvation, Growth and Development

Student's only hope of salvation is through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ at Calvary.

(Romans 3:23, 6:23, 5:8, and Ephesians 2:8-9)

A sequential and intense study of the character of God leads the student to an understanding and application of his purpose and responsibilities in life which are his as a Bible-centered Christian.

2. Shared Home/School Responsibility

The parents have the primary responsibility for their child's education. Therefore, a close home/school relationship is vital. Open channels of communication and involvement are extremely important for the total well-being of the student.

3. Christ-Centered Academic Development

Proverbs 2:17 is our basis for instruction. We are to stress in the order God has designed: 1) wisdom, 2) understanding, 3) discernment, and 4) knowledge. The fundamental subjects are presented through a Christ-centered academic curriculum, emphasizing the principle approach, thus equipping the student for his life's ministry. LCS encourages academic achievement in keeping with God-given abilities of each child.

4. Social Development

Social development is a highly significant aspect of education. Relationship are the foundations of effective Christian modeling and are exemplified by Christian teachers and parents. Christ-centered values are taught as they reference point for personal decision-making and applied through daily interpersonal relationships.

5. Physical Development

Proper body care and development is emphasized in 1 Corinthians 3:16. Each student is led to an appreciation of the value of his body and its care, a "temple holy unto God," and its dedication to the praise and service of God.

6. Patriotism

The love of country from a Christian perspective is taught and encouraged through music, academic subjects, assemblies, and overall respect for the nations, its leaders, and our flag.

7. Character

Developing good character is vital for the student's academic, emotion, social, spiritual, physical growth and well being. We as parents and educators want the students to have the inward motivation to do what is right. Our character program teaches students to recognize and consistently demonstrate positive character traits.
