Philosophy of Education
Jordan Baptist School is different from most schools in that it involves more than just academics. It is a total commitment to a lifestyle.
The first and strongest emphasis is the spiritual growth of the child and family. The clear teaching of the Bible is the best foundation for learning. The Bible is not only taught as a class, but also permeates every other subject. We endeavor to introduce each child to Christ and to direct children and families to thoroughly know and live the Bible.
The second emphasis is on academics. The school uses a traditional, time-tested, rigorous Christian curriculum. We provide a superior academic climate and promote academic excellence to best prepare students to fulfill God’s will for their lives.
The third and fourth areas of emphasis are proper social and physical development. The school sponsors fine arts competitions, musicals, and seasonal programs teaching our students to exalt Christ with their God-given talents, abilities, and skills. Our physical education and athletic programs are continually expanding to meet the needs of our students.
We believe that modest dress, proper entertainment, Christ-honoring relationships, a daily quiet time, church attendance and voluntary church involvement should be the rule and not just occasional activities. These commitments are in harmony with our purpose.
We do not attempt to run the life of anyone, but we want to be up front concerning our stand and how we believe the Bible teaches that a true Christian should live. Therefore, students are enrolled in our school with a well-defined understanding that the Christian life is a 365 day-per-year commitment.
If what we believe, teach, and practice is what you desire for your children, we look forward to joining you in training them for the Lord Jesus Christ.
