The School offers its students an education that recognizes the Bible as the final authority in matters of life and thought. Students are encouraged to develop a worldview that integrates Christian faith with all areas of learning.
The School functions as a nurturing community in which students are respected as unique individuals created in the image of God, each with special abilities and needs. They are taught by skilled and knowledgeable teachers who love children and are dedicated to helping them realize their highest potential--spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, and creatively. Class sizes are small so that each student will receive individual attention and have abundant opportunities to participate and lead.
The School takes an active interest in the development of its students’ intellectual, spiritual, moral, and physical habits in the belief that early development of a disciplined lifestyle in the context of a relationship with Yeshua Christ will provide a solid foundation for a responsible and joyful life.
The School offers its students a rich humanities, arts, and social studies curriculum that integrates the study of literature and the arts with the study of history and geography. Students come to understand the present and gain perspective on the future through knowledge of the past. They are warned of evil and error and challenged to live virtuously and nobly through the example of those who have gone before. They learn to think critically and biblically by evaluating the writings of outstanding thinkers of the past and present. They are encouraged to express themselves creatively in written and artistic media through exposure to literature and art.
The School offers its students a mathematics and science program that enables them to participate knowledgeably in the scientific and technological discussions of the modern world. From the early grades the mathematics curriculum encourages mastery of concepts and skills that are foundational for advanced study and emphasizes the real-life application of what is learned. The science curriculum makes use of a hands-on approach which enables the students to acquire a solid understanding of the world in which they live through a direct encounter with the wonders and laws of God’s creation.
The School offers its students a physical education program that involves them in a variety of physical activities and sports designed to develop their physical fitness, athletic skills, and character. The School offers many additional opportunities for learning in areas not covered in the traditional academic disciplines.
In today’s society we are faced with a widening gap, separating people economically, academically, racially, and socially. A school organized by churches and Christians from different racial and economic backgrounds can help to bridge this gap, forging new partnerships and relationships that will glorify God and demonstrate the love of Yeshua Christ to the world. The Cambridge School is such a school.
