- Bergen County Christian Academy makes available a program which provides for the total education of the child - spiritual, moral, mental, social, and physical.
- Only by a Christian philosophy may this be achieved.
- Thus, Bible training is not an extra but is an integral part of every area of training.
- The secular and the sacred are fused together to form a comprehensive system of education. Small classes and individualized instruction by concerned Christian teachers is the rule rather than the exception.
- The purpose of Christian education is to provide an environment to direct the processes of human development toward God's objectives of godliness of character and conduct.
- The Christian school carries out those educational tasks that the family can not fulfill as efficiently or lacks the skills or resources to do as well as the school.
