MISSION & VISION

MISSION - Mount Pisgah Christian School provides an outstanding college-preparatory education grounded in Christian faith and values.

 

VISION - to teach foundational truth in an ever changing world, empowering students to think critically and creatively and to act with courage and compassion.

 

Luke 10.36-37 Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Whether a student is a believer or not, we want them to walk out of here with a biblical worldview. A worldview that encompasses origin, identity, purpose, community, and love. A biblical worldview is formed by scripture and scripture is empowering. We want students to think and to act. We do not want students who act without thinking, nor do we want students who think, but walk past a situation without acting. As a school, we want students to think. We want students to enter every single situation and circumstance thinking through it both critically as well as creatively, and then we want them to act on what they think, and not to be afraid to act and to act in a way that shows compassion for others.

VALUES / GUIDING PRINCIPLES

 

FAITH - As a school, we value faith. We cannot imagine a life without faith. Everyone lives by faith. We live by faith in Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 11.1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

RELATIONSHIPS - We value relationships, relationships above all else. We believe that education is best delivered within the context of a positive relationship and students learn more and push further when they have a relationship with a teacher.

John 15.12-14 This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.

CURIOSITY - We value curiosity, we seek it, we create it, we treasure it. We want students to be curious about everything, to ask questions. Questions are not a nuisance, they are essential.

1 Thessalonians 5.21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.

ENGAGEMENT - We charge our faculty to engage students from the beginning of the day to the end of the day, no downtime, no worksheets, no boredom, no detachment. Student engagement is the leading indicator of student learning.

Colossians 3.23-24 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

ACHIEVEMENT - We value moving the ball down the field, gaining ground, getting things done. We want our students to progress, to reach goals, to achieve. We want them to achieve academically, athletically, artistically, personally, socially, relationally and emotionally.

Luke 12.48 From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.
