Christian Schools of Springfield’s primary reason for existence is to assist the home in their responsibility of educating the whole child and the church in making disciples. Ultimately, our goal is for our students to trust the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and to be prepared for a life of service to God and to humanity out of love, for His glory (John 3:16; Matt. 6:33; 16:26; I Cor. 13; 10:31).
Christian Schools of Springfield cannot overemphasize the importance of faithful attendance in Sunday school, morning worship, Sunday evening, and mid-week services (Heb. 10:23-25). It is vital in support of the Christian home. One’s commitment to Christian education, as offered at CSOS, is evidenced by the family’s commitment to the local church. Christian Schools of Springfield is not a substitute for regular family worship.
The educational philosophy of Christian Schools of Springfield is based on the Word of God (Ps. 1; 119:105,130; Prov. 1:7; II Tim. 3:15-17). The principles of Scripture are the basis of faith and practice in the school. The curriculum is taught from a Biblical, Christ-centered perspective so that students will learn that God’s truth is absolute and culturally relevant (Col. 1:12-20).
Every staff member has accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and affirms his/her belief in the doctrinal statement of Christian Schools of Springfield, Missouri (John 3:7). Each staff member affirms his/her commitment to live an authentic Christian life as an example before the students ( I Tim. 4:12). We seek teachers who sense a calling of God to Christian education, who are well-qualified in their field, love students, treat them with dignity, and seek to be consistent in discipline (Eph. 6:4; I Cor. 13).
Christian Schools of Springfield provides a two year old through twelfth grade program. We have a threefold approach with our curriculum: college preparatory, general, and classical. A strong emphasis is placed on reading, writing, computational skills, thinking, good study habits, the development of Christian character, and a disciplined approach to the pursuit of knowledge. Physical development through the arts and athletics is strongly encouraged as well as participation beyond the classroom. It is our desire to provide an educational environment where students are taught to pursue spiritual, academic, and physical excellence for life (Luke 2:52).
It is our objective that Christian Schools of Springfield be distinguished as a place where: truth and knowledge are taught, God is revealed, wisdom is sought, integrity is expected, excellence is applauded, leaders are developed, service is encouraged, and participation is cultivated for the glory of God (I Cor. 10:31).
The Word of God is the foundation of relevancy that we employ to give our students a well-rounded education. The Bible is not only relevant for time but for eternity.
