CORE VALUES

Love:

We believe that each person should love God and love others as they love themselves. It is our goal at Praise Academy to demonstrate the love of God through a life-style of love and caring for each other.

Family:

We believe in the family as the most important institution that God has created. It is our goal at Praise Academy to partner with our parents in the education of their children.

Biblical Worldview:

We believe that the Bible is immutable, inerrant, and infallible. That all education should begin with God’s Word as its foundation. It is our goal to teach all subject matter from God’s point of view … a Biblical Worldview.

Kingdom Education:

A life-long, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading a child to Christ, building a child up in Christ, and equipping a child to serve Christ! Glen Schultz, Kingdom Education (Nashville: LifeWay Press), 1998
