The ultimate objective of Christian education must serve to point out the very purpose of life itself-that we exist to praise, glorify, and please God, imperfectly in this life, but perfectly in the next. Our objectives are that every child:
- has a thorough knowledge and understanding of God's Word.
- builds his/her life around faith in the Lord so that all thoughts, words, and deeds exemplify the life of Christ.
- is instructed, in every subject, to develop all the talents God has given for his/her use in the world as he/she does all to the glory of God.
- is prepared through discipline-based instruction for the next step of his/her education.
