We’re excited to share our philosophy of Christian education with you. In the following video series, Dr. Kevin Priest addresses topics such as “Why Christian education?”, “Are Christian schools still important?”, “Why did some people have such negative experiences in the Christian school environment?”, and “What does authentically Christian education look like?” He unpacks the meaning and heart of our core values–truth, love, and service–and how we incorporate them into daily life here at Hampton Park Christian School.
Are Christian Schools Still Important Today?
At core, the purpose of education is identifying and passing on what is true. In the digitally-connected age we live in, we believe it’s more important than ever for kids to be taught critical thinking from a Christian perspective.
Partnership in Training the Next Generation
Have you ever wondered how Christian parenting and Christian education work together? At HPCS, we engage in a mutually respectful partnership between parents and educators. We believe that our role as Christian educators is to support parents in their God-given role of nurturing and equipping their children.
Safety is a big deal. It’s also multi-faceted: physical, relational, theological, and emotional. At HPCS, we prioritize every facet of child safety. Here’s how:
Getting the Christian Education Conversation Started
We like to say that every day is Open House at HPCS! As a parent, you make decisions about where to send your kids to school, and we respect that a lot of factors go into that decisions. Whether you plan to enroll at HPCS, we invite you to come for a visit, talk with us about your questions and decision-making process, and receive a personal tour of our campus.
Our Ultimate Goal for our Students
Our goal is to prepare graduates to enter adulthood with not only the academic skills they need for success but also a well-established relationship with God that will anchor and guide them for the rest of their lives.
A Culture of Loving Discipleship
What keeps Christian education real and life-giving? Relationships. HPCS practices a deep-seated commitment to truth and love in relationships. These core values guide our culture and interactions.
Healing for Those Hurt by Christian Schools
Christian education that approaches students with love and trust provides a safe culture for growth in Christ-likeness. Sadly, some people experienced a Christian school environment that was harmful to them. When control and fear are used as motivators, the end result is damaging. We pursue compassion and connection in everything we do here at HPCS.
