The primary role of any school is to provide a solid education that will form a foundation of knowledge for lifelong learning. However, as a Christian school, Brookfield Christian believes that education encompasses so much more. Our philosophy of education centers around three main components:
A Biblical Foundation for Christian Education
The Bible serves as the basis for our educational endeavor, offers a solid foundation for our learning environment, and provides guidance for the spiritual development of our students. The inspired Word of God also gives a definitive reason as to why a Christian school is important. God reveals His existence and power through creation. In his Word, God further reveals all that we need to know for our salvation and righteous living. Throughout the educational process, we seek to integrate the two forms of revelation—the Word of God and his creation—and weave them into a meaningful and life-changing whole.
An Educational Partnership
The home, church, and school should support and encourage one another as partners in Christian education. While the school focuses on education, we also complement and share in the responsibility of Christian parents to cultivate and develop a love for and knowledge of God and his world in each of our students. All students are led by Christian teachers with state teaching certification in the study of natural sciences, language arts, math, social sciences, the fine arts, foreign language, physical education, and the Bible. Connections are made between faith and learning in each of these areas with the ultimate goal of meeting the academic, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of each student.
A Nurturing Atmosphere
The goal for interpersonal relationships at BCS is a genuine concern for others that imitates the love that Christ has shown to us. Because each student is created in the image of God, children are taught the dignity and value of each individual while recognizing the overall importance of being united in Christ as a whole school community.
