Philosophy/Belief Statement:

At Classical Christian School for the Arts, Inc we value, teach and most importantly model Christian ethics and character-based education including respect, loyalty, trust, and care one for another. We assure our students that they will be treated fairly and with respect. Our objective is to make decisions that will best represent the entire student body. We believe that our student council and Spirit Club provide the opportunity for students to develop that experience while contributing to school functions and community service. W e want our parents to know that we are committed to do our best to act in the best interest of our students.

We value cultural and racial diversity, consistent with the Judeo-Christian worldview. CCSA, while founded on faith-based principles, is non-denominational and accepts students of all faiths. Children have the option to participate in specific faith curricula we offer or other electives. CCSA is not affiliated with a particular church; CCSA is governed by a board of directors.

What We Believe

- In being as relevant as today's news while holding to the timeless teachings of Jesus Christ.

- God loves us...unconditionally...and continues to invite us to follow Him.

- In Jesus Christ, that He is God's one and only Son.

- The Bible is a flawless handbook that helps us succeed in life and gives straight answers for issues relating to work, family, relationships, and anything else we encounter, and that it is God's holy, inerrant, inspired and infallible word.

- Effective life-change begins when we follow Jesus.

- Each person has a gift, ability, or experience that can help others, and our privilege is to help our students discover it!
