It is our firm belief that Victory Christian Schools is an extension of the Christian home. God has made the family His basic training institution. God has entrusted children to parents (Psalms 127:3). These children clearly belong to God, and He has entrusted them into the care of the parents, thus creating very specific stewardship responsibilities. It is the primary duty of the parent to raise these children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Deuteronomy 4:9,6,7; Proverbs 6:20 23; Ephesians 6:4). Parents must accept the responsibility for the teaching and training of children.
Whereas many schools today are forced to remove every aspect of God from their curriculum, the Christian school endeavors to center everything around our God. God does have a perfect plan for each and every one of us, and it is our responsibility to live totally for Him. It is the responsibility of the Christian school to provide a Christ-centered curriculum. The Christian school, however, can never take on more than a supporting role to the home. It is our primary goal to assist and support parents relative to their responsibility in the nurture and admonition in the Lord. The Christian school is a teaching institution, not a training institution. The home is clearly God’s training center and the parent cannot delegate that responsibility. Victory Christian Schools is able to offer technical assistance in the subject areas and to work very hard at reinforcing Christian principles and values in the lives of our students. The parents, however, must do the training. Parents should seek out a school that seeks to reinforce the values they are attempting to teach at home. We at Victory Christian Schools recognize the Christian school is not the final answer to the humanism that surrounds us. God exhorts the parents to “train up the child in the way he should go” (Proverbs 22:6). It is our privilege to assist the Christian home in this training but never to take the place of the home. We take this responsibility seriously and thank the Lord for the opportunity to support parents in their responsibility before God.
Our purpose is to provide an opportunity for successful living in a Christian atmosphere where the striving for academic and spiritual excellence is combined with an expression of love for one another. In such an environment, students and teachers alike may be obedient to God and under the control of the Holy Spirit. All of our lives can be deeply enriched as we grow together through our Christian experience.
The entire emphasis of our school is focused upon the Word of God which is integrated into every area of school life. Victory Christian Schools holds that the Bible is the verbally-inspired Word of God and that salvation by faith in Jesus Christ is the initial step in the Christian life. Thus, the primary purpose of Victory Christian Schools is to lead, to confirm, and to encourage each student in the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We seek to work with the home in helping students to grow spiritually, academically, and socially.
Each student is challenged to pursue God’s calling for his life by applying himself diligently to the academic and spiritual opportunities offered at the school. During his years at Victory Christian Schools, the student is able to broaden his spiritual experience, grow in discipleship, cultivate intellectual competence, and obtain a wholesome disposition towards others.
The goal of Christian education is to develop within our students the ability to see all areas of life from a Christian world and life view. Our desire at Victory is to assist Christian young people to acquire an internal moral code of behavior based upon the Bible, which is our sole and final authority for faith and practice and to help prepare them to live a knowledgeable, responsible, and creative Christian life in society. All areas of curriculum shall be consistent with the inerrant Word of God and shall be designed to train the whole child in the following areas:
- To know Christ personally and to yield to His will in every area of his life.
- To relate all truth to His truth and to discover and develop individual aptitudes.
- To cultivate the power of critical thinking.
- To instill a loyalty to Christ in all areas.
- To develop a compassionate understanding and an active interest within the family unit.
- To prepare children to live in the world and not to be of the world.
- To teach a Biblical perspective of loyalty to country.
- To build a Christ controlled personality, enabling him to adjust to life’s situations in a God honoring way.
- To develop self discipline.
- To develop a respect for the body as the temple of the Holy Spirit.
- To teach intelligent care of the body and encourage the yielding of the body as an instrument for God’s use.
