How does a Christian education differ from a Christ-centered education?
A Christian education speaks primarily to the environment in which it occurs. It is of, by, and for Christians and surrounded by Christian influences. A Christ-centered education at Hill Country Christian School encompasses that and more. We not only wrap what we do in the name of Jesus Christ, but we also strive to place Him at the center of every activity.
All subjects are taught from a Christian worldview, with Christian principles and biblical truths woven into the very fabric of the curriculum. Programs and activities are conducted with the purpose of developing Christ-likeness in our students. Perhaps our focus is best summarized by the words of Dutch theologian Desiderius Erasmus when he stated, “All studies, philosophy, rhetoric, are for this object: that we may know Christ and honor Him. This is the end of all learning and eloquence.”
How does Hill Country accomplish this?
As a Christ-centered school in all levels, programs, and teaching, Hill Country Christian School seeks to:
- Teach all subjects as parts of an integrated whole with the scriptures at the center (2 Timothy 3:16-17);
- Provide a clear model of the biblical Christian life through our staff and board (Matthew 22:37-40);
- Encourage every child to begin and develop his relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20, Matthew 19:13-15);
- Present every student complete in Christ (Colossians 1:28-29).
