It is the purpose of the Lakeshore Christian School to teach that the Lord Jesus Christ is to be preeminent in all of life. This broad principle is the basis for every area of life. The Bible is specific in stating about Christ, “For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in the earth … and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. …that in all things He might have the preeminence.” (Colossians 1:16-18).
There is a clear, critical difference between the Biblical and the secular viewpoints on a subject. Even though the facts are identical, the Christian school believes that no subject can be taught in the totality of its truth when the Creator is denied or ignored, as is the case in the secular school. Knowledge is understood by recognition of God’s rightful place in it. The Lakeshore Christian School provides a sound academic education and a wholesome program which is integrated with the Biblical point of view. This process is natural, as God intended it to be, and not strained or forced.
Parents are responsible for the education of their children. During the school day, the teachers are in “loco parentis,” in the place of the parents, which makes the parents and teachers partners in education. Children are to be taught at home, as well as at school, the reality that all truth is God’s truth, including history, mathematics, science, physical education, music and the arts, and that Jesus is to be in the center of all learning and life.
