We believe that children should receive a complete course of instruction in all the common branches of learning as prescribed by the State of Montana, but that such instruction should be given from a Biblical point of view.

We believe that children can and should be taught to treat others with love and respect.

We believe in maintaining high standards of character development, academic education, fine art, vocational and student activities.

The opposite of Christ-centered education is man-centered education or humanism - declaring man, instead of God, as the authority for truth.  We lift up Christ and the Bible as the ultimate authority for truth.


1. To provide Biblical training that will tend to teach the basic and general Christian beliefs and principles while leaving specific teaching, outworking, and areas of disagreement to parents and churches.

2. To provide a strong academic program that satisfies state academic requirements and prepares young people to live successfully in this world.  This will be based on a Biblical educational philosophy, not a human one.  Students will be given a strong background in the basics of reading, language, mathematics, science and history.

3. To instill patriotism, love of country and conservative ideals which have made our country great.

4. To provide godly Christian teachers who will be role models for the students they teach.

5. To develop in the child Christ-likeness in the following areas as an outgrowth of the development of the Christian mind set: (consistent life view with Christ pre-eminent)

      A.    Spiritually - teach the basis of successful Christian living based on faith in Jesus Christ, knowledge of God's Word, development of godly character traits, and maturing in the Christian walk (II Thessalonians 3:3).

      B.      Mentally - develop a Biblical way of thinking that places Christ preeminent in all of life, stressing that all of life is spiritual (Philippians 2:5).

      C.    Physically - our body is the vehicle given to us by God in which we live our lives to bring glory to God.  Therefore, we need to learn to care for and develop it so that we may serve God to the fullest (II Corinthians 6:16).

      D.    Socially - to learn to develop Biblical human relationships in which we serve people not use them (Matthew 20:25-28).

      E.     Emotionally - develop a stable personality which is based on one's self worth in "God's sight" and that emphasizes self-control and the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:21,22).

Academically, the school endeavors:

1. To promote high academic standards within the potential of the individual as uniquely created by God and to help the student realize his full academic potential.

2. To help each student gain a thorough comprehension and command of the fundamental processes used in communicating and dealing with others; such as reading, writing, speaking, listening, and mathematics.

3. To teach and encourage the use of good study habits.

4. To teach the student how to do independent research and to reason logically.

5. To motivate the student to pursue independent study in areas of personal interest.

6. To develop creative and critical thinking and the proper use of Biblical criteria for evaluation.

7. To promote good citizenship through developing the understanding and appreciation of our Christian and American heritages of responsible freedom, human dignity, and acceptance of authority.

8. To discuss current affairs in all fields and relate them to God's plan for man.

9. To produce an understanding and appreciation for God's world, and an awareness of man's role in his environment and his God-given responsibilities to use and preserve them properly.

10. To develop a practical reason for learning the content of mathematics, English, history, science, physical education, etc., and to allow the student to see a purpose in his/her education and how it can be used.
