Northumberland Christian School

  • The purpose of Northumberland Christian School is to teach every subject from a Biblical perspective and to help the student to see all of life from God's point of view.
  • The underlying philosophy of secular education teaches the child that we live in a world of chance, and whatever order is seen in the world is attributed to the laws of "nature"; however, our school continually teaches the child that all is ordered and controlled by God.
  • The ultimate goal of our entire educational process is the glory of God, and not only man's good and man's development.
  • Man has not rightly learned, until he has learned to take his place at the feet of his Creator in worship, praise, and submission, and has learned to live to His glory in every detail of life.
