Academics

Educational Philosophy

Traditional

Instruction is based upon a structured coordinated curriculum covering known facts and past unchanging truths.

  • Learning is based on a coordinated curriculum.

  • A standard of attainment is set and the student has to meet that standard.

  • The classroom is teacher-centric.

  • Each student is individually responsible for their own learning.

  • Instruction begins with the parts and moves to the whole. Instruction builds through repetition.

  • The learner has a sin nature.

Biblical

Biblical support for traditional learning as realted to the nature of man, the nature of authority land the nature of learning.

 

  • Education of children is a biblical command (2 Timothy 3:17).

  • Christian Education is primarily the responsibility of the home (Deuteronomy 6:7, Ephesians 6:4).

  • The Christian school comes alongside the parents in educating children (Galatians 4:1).

  • Christian education is discipling student in the absolute truth of the Bible (1 John 1:1-5).

Discipleship 
  • We will prioritize discussing salvation, and salvation testimonies with every student.

  • We will prioritize conversations with each student regarding their personal relationship with Christ.

  • We will discuss, guide, and encourage students in the areas of their devotions, prayer, and soulwinning.

  • Before a student graduates from Juniata Christian School, we will exhaust every effort to ensure they know what the truth of the Bible is, and why we believe it.

  • We will provide instruction in logic, reason, and how to defend one's faith.

  • We will provide instruction in views contrary to the truth and discuss their errors.

  • We will by example and through instruction, illustrate how to maintain a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Excellence

Never satisfied. A constant quest to pursue the standard set in academics, the arts, athletics, and holy living. Although humanly we set institutional standards, our goal is for every person to strive to reach God's standard of living holy.
