Our Philosophy

Christian education compels students to apply what they learn in the classroom by becoming agents of Christ’s Redemption in a fallen world. It guides students as they acquire knowledge, consider how to apply it, and act on it through service. Christian schooling is more about preparing students for life and less about protecting them from life; therefore, effective Christian Schools do not withdraw from culture. Instead, they teach students how to filter their thoughts about their studies of the world through the lens of Scripture, urging them to consider how they may engage and transform culture. North Hills Christian School is committed to equipping the hearts and minds of students to impact the world for Christ by educating the whole child (spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and physically), using God’s revelation of Himself in both His creation and His Holy Scriptures.

Because man was created as a spiritual being, North Hills Christian School focuses upon the spirits of students. Students are created with a need to develop a deeply spiritual relationship with their Lord, Jesus Christ; we encourage and facilitate that relationship and view this relationship as central to everything else we do.

Because man was created as a rational being, North Hills Christian School provides an education that challenges students to become inquisitive, discerning thinkers who love learning and who desire to know God more fully through their studies. God determines that which is absolutely true; therefore, it is impossible to separate the study of God’s world from His perspectives on that world. By placing the study of the world in the proper biblical framework, NHCS allows students to reach Biblical conclusions about the world they study.

Because man was created as a physical being and because the physical body of the Christian is the dwelling place of God's Holy Spirit, North Hills Christian School encourages students to offer their bodies for His use. The Christian must understand and care for the body; Christian education teaches students how to do so. It also teaches students that the physical world is a good and necessary part of God’s creation and that it may be enjoyed without being indulged.

Because man was created as a social being,North Hills Christian School is committed to teaching students to recognize their own unique gifts and abilities to glorify Him in positive social relationships. Students are taught to interact biblically with others, using their individual gifts and abilities to serve and encourage one another. The school fosters students as they strive to be obedient to the two greatest commandments:

" Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind’…‘Love your neighbor as yourself" (Matt.22:37-39, NIV).
