Mission and Vision

Classical Roots Christian School exists to partner with parents in providing a holistic education. CRCS will emphasize the classics of Western literature to train students in academic excellence and biblical morals/values. It is the desire of CRCS to offer an exceptional classical Christian education by uniting parents and educators to produce enthusiastic, lifelong learners who take personal responsibility for their success in life and faith.

Ready for School
Our Goals

A student attending CRCS should display the following . . .

  • a love for God: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.”  Matt 22:37

  • a love for Others: “…and your neighbor as yourself.”  Matt 22:39. CRCS students will learn to treat others the way they want to be treated.  This includes exhibiting kindness toward fellow students, not withholding good from someone in need, having respect for their teachers and administrators, and caring for our school home.

  • a love for learning:  A classical education taught in the hybrid model captures the attention and imagination of students in developmentally appropriate ways.  This promotes independent learning and equips students for a lifetime of learning.

  • a value on personal responsibility: Students will learn that education is not merely for consumption but is meant to challenge them to do hard things and do them consistently, leading to success in their life’s work.

  • an ability to reason well:  “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”  -Aristotle

  • an emphasis on virtue and wisdom: The best education not only informs but also forms the student in the art of living well. The end goal of education is not career readiness or the ability to pass a test but personal formation.

  • a delight in beauty:  Students learn to discern and love beauty as manifested in God’s creation.

  • a desire to engage society:  Students learn to participate in, influence, shape, and serve their community with Christian graciousness.

Statement of Faith

“In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, and in all things love.”  

Augustine

 

We intend to serve families from different churches and denominations.  We teach primary Christian beliefs only, directing students to Scripture, their parents, and history for informing secondary beliefs.

We believe:

  • The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.

  • In one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • That Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, a sacrifice for our sins, according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.

  • That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convict men; regenerate the believing sinner; and indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.

  • That man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost; only through faith in Jesus Christ and by the regeneration of the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

  • That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His Resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such who receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.

  • In the personal and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ this “Blessed Hope” has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.

  • In the bodily resurrection of the dead: the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
