MAJOR AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
Our first and most important aim at Christ Prep is to glorify and honor God in all that we do (1 Corinthians 10:31; 1 Peter 4:11).
- We strive to consistently acknowledge, both in word and deed, the Scriptures as our highest rule and final authority for faith and practice in all matters.
- We strive to be in constant and whole-hearted submission to the Scriptures in all aspects of school operations in general and the academic program in particular
Our second aim at Christ Prep is to do all that we do, including academic teaching, in such a way that we train and encourage the students the Lord brings under our care to become His disciples (Matthew 28:18-20)
- We encourage parents, whenever we have opportunity, to see their highest calling and their most fundamental responsibility as that of training their children to be faithful disciples of Christ.
- We uphold the Bible as the inspired Word of God and encourage our students to adopt attitudes of love, respect and appreciation toward both the Holy Scriptures and the One who gave them to us.
- We seek to integrate the prepositional revelation of the Word with the natural revelation of creation by interpreting and evaluating what is and has been by the eternal truths of the Holy Scriptures.
- We teach and encourage our students to develop and apply a God-centered perspective to all that they do.
- We strive to avoid doing anything which might distract or discourage students from devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ.
- We challenge our students, their families and our fellow staff members to become increasingly more knowledgeable of and obedient to the will of God as revealed in the Holy Scriptures.
- We encourage our students to develop self-discipline and responsibility based on respect for and submission to God and all other legitimately-ordained authority.
As a University-Model School, we strive to strengthen the family as the primary social and educational unit instituted by God, through the educational ministry God has given us (Genesis 2:18-25; Exodus 20:12; Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:22-6:4).

Both the home and the body of Christ share the responsibility for teaching His children, we aim to systematically integrate both home and school in delivering academic education (Ephesians 4:7-16; 6:4; 1 Corinthians 14:26-33; Titus 1:5).
