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 its core, the purpose of education involves identifying what’s true and good and valuable. In the digitally connected age we live in, we believe it’s more important than ever for kids to think “Christianly,” viewing life through the lens of God’s Word.
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 Christian parents and teachers. We believe our role is to support parents in their God-given role to educate and disciple their children.
Safety is a big deal. It’s also multifaceted. It involves physical, relational, theological, and emotional safety. At HPCS, we prioritize every facet.
Getting the Christian Education Conversation Started
We like to say that every day is Open House at HPCS! As a Christian parent, you decide where to send your kids to school, and we respect that a lot of factors go into that decision. Whether or not 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 campus.
Our Ultimate Goal for our Students
Our goal is to prepare graduates to enter adulthood not only with the academic skills they need for success but also with a well-established relationship with God that will anchor and guide them for the rest of their lives.
A Culture of Loving Discipleship
What makes Christian education real and life-giving? Relationships. HPCS practices a deep-seated commitment to truth, love, and service in relationships. These core values guide our culture and interactions.
Healing for Those Hurt by Christian Schools
Christian education that approaches students from a position of 1 Corinthians 13 love and trust provides a safe culture for growth in godliness. 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. No heart was every controlled into Christlikeness, and there is no fear in love.
