Southwest Christian Academy believes every family’s first priority is to lay a foundation in the life of their child that is supported by Biblical truths.  Although we do not replace the home or the church, our purpose is to assist parents in:

“training up a child in the way he should go, so that even when is old, he will not depart from it.”
(Proverbs 22:6)

Christian schooling is rooted in a Christian philosophy of education upholding the eternal Word of God as revealed in Scripture and in creation.  A Christian philosophy of education is founded on the biblical truth that all that can be discovered, studied, fathomed, created, adorned, or enjoyed existed first in the mind of God, is sustained by Christ’s power, and is revealed through the Holy Spirit’s presence, as related in the following scripture:

“For by him all things were created:  things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church…For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.” 
(Colossians 1:16-18. 2:9-10)

God's Word is also the moral authority that defines all of our intellectual, spiritual, social, and physical pursuits.  Thus, true education of the person can only occur when all facets of learning (all disciplines) are rooted in and viewed through the visual lens of God’s Word.   Students are taught that:  all truth is God’s truth, they are created in the image of God, they must confront the issue of sin and redemption,  and they can know God as revealed in Christ.
The Christian mind should be the best mind, enlightened by the word of God and having integrated God’s principles with academic pursuits.  Our aim is to develop students with a biblical worldview who are well prepared academically and spiritually to be “light and salt” in a dark and bland world.  Therefore, every learning experience aims to engage students toward their full potential in Christ.
