"If truth is one, that is if truth has unity, then Christian education means understanding,
and being excited by, the associations between the disciplines and showing how these associations are rooted in the
Creator's existence." – Francis Schaeffer
It should be a given that a school's academic program would have the intellectual growth of its
students as a fundamental goal. That is without a doubt true at Seven Rivers Christian School, but the high value we place
on our academic program is driven by more than the simple desire for our students' intellectual growth. We consider developing
the Christian mind – learning about the world around us - to be an expression of worship for our God who created the world and
everything in it. It honors God, who is the source of all truth, when we bring to light the biblical truth that is evident in
each academic discipline. For example, we believe history is not the study of random events occurring over time, but a study of how God has worked through events and people to fulfill His plan for His created world. Because God reveals Himself to us through His written
word, our students should be proficient in both written and spoken language. Because God is the maker of our physical world and
the order in it, our students should be skilled in the disciplines of mathematics and science. Because God's creativity is revealed
in His creation, our students should have an understanding and appreciation of beauty through the study of music and the arts.
In short, we encourage our students to attain knowledge not only because it will enable them to prepare
for higher education or acquire a job, but also because it teaches them the majesty of God, the wonder of His creation, and how to
wisely live in a world over which He sovereignly rules.
SRCS offers a traditional liberal arts curriculum, combined with an authentic biblical worldview, and taught by an exceptional faculty.
Our carefully planned curriculum challenges students intellectually and stretches them to perform to the best of their ability. With
an early emphasis on fundamental facts and skills, students first build a strong foundation of knowledge, and then learn to think about
and apply what they have learned. Truth has value and is worth pursuing, wherever it is found, so we may use both Christian and secular
textbooks to accomplish our curricular goals. We firmly believe that the key to an excellent curriculum lies primarily with the teacher,
not the textbook.
Our faculty members are masters of their subject matter and bring experience and a passion for learning to the classroom. As lifelong
learners themselves, they seek to instill a desire for lifelong learning in their students. They each have a personal relationship with
Christ, and they devote themselves to the mentoring and spiritual growth of their students.
