Spiritual Life

Inspiring Faith

As a Christian school, we care about our students’ education from an eternal perspective. By design, everything we do here—academics, athletics, arts—is grounded in the desire to see our students mature in faith and character. Whether it’s through chapel services, Bible classes, or service opportunities, our aim is to educate the heart as fully as the mind so that our students have a greater possibility of knowing and committing to Christ before graduation. Ours is a campus where Christ will always be served, a campus set apart to worship and glorify God in all we do.

Weekly Chapel

Each division attends weekly chapel services in the Brown-Holt Chapel Arts Center for a time of worship, prayer, and songs of praise.  Speakers include former and current students, local pastors, and teachers, who share scripture, their faith, and the encouragement to exemplify Christ in all things. Individual classes may take turns leading chapels creatively through skits, spoken word, and prayer. Parents and grandparents are encouraged to come and worship with us each week during this special time on campus.

Bible Curriculum

The Bible department stands at the heart of the educational mission of our school. As an interdenominational school, scripture is studied at all grade levels from a perspective of unity, emphasizing what we share in Christ, and not what separates us denominationally. Through a study of both the Old and New Testaments, classes are designed to create an environment where students can explore Biblical truth and discuss its application in the world today.

Passion Week

During our Passion Week, celebrated the week before Easter, faculty, staff, and students join together to focus their attention on a spiritual theme and verse of Scripture. It is hoped that during this time that the Holy Spirit would use the worship leaders, speakers, activities, and times of prayer to bring about revival in our hearts and minds to the things of God. The goal for the end of the week and beyond is that we would be transformed more and more into the image of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Missions & Service

We believe in the calling of every Christian to follow Christ's command in Matthew 28:19-20 to spread the truth of the Gospel and "make disciples of all nations."  We therefore seek to support student involvement in missions and service both locally and around the world.  We desire to see students growing and serving through their local churches and encourage student involvement in local church missions projects.  We also work to provide students with the opportunity to serve through school mission trips when possible.
