Growing Leaders Who Follow Christ
We believe that God has set His children apart, and calls them to a higher standard in all aspects of life. It is our goal to “restore in man the image of his Maker, to bring him back to the perfection in which he was created, to promote the development of body, mind, and soul, that the divine purpose of His creation might be realized.” – Education pp. 15-16.
Our classrooms are small, multi-grade environments. They are structured in schedules and routines. Daily content and expectations are based on developmental learning. Because of our small class size, students are privileged to receive more one-on-one instruction and thus progress through their studies more efficiently. Having multi-grade environments allows for leadership, reinforcement of learning and skills, and creates strong relationships between the faculty and students.
Exercising and learning to care for our bodies is an important aspect of education. When the body is strong, the mind is strong, and then the spirit will be strong also. All age groups go outside for fresh air, exercise or free play at least once a day. Science classes emphasize nutrition, how our bodies work, and how to keep our bodies strong for the service of God.
Each class taught at The Oaks is done so with Christ focused instruction. Jesus is invited into the classroom each day as we begin with worship. Special chapel presentations take place each Friday, and a Week of Prayer service is scheduled once per semester. Community service activities, spirit week, and prayer buddies are also emphasized within the curriculum.
