Throughout our curricular program as well as through co‐curricular activities and examples set by faculty and staff, CBCS strives to do the following:

  • Teach all courses in the curriculum as parts of an integrated whole with the Scripture as the center (II Timothy 3:16, 17).
  • Provide a clear model of biblical Christian life through the school staff and Foundation (Matthew 22:37‐40).
  • Encourage every student to begin to develop a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18‐20).
  • Emphasize grammar, logic, and rhetoric in all courses. For the purposes of definition, grammar is to be understood as the fundamental rules and data of each course; logic is to be understood as the ordered relationship of particulars in each course; rhetoric is to be understood as the means by which the grammar and logic of each course may be expressed clearly.
  • Encourage every student to develop a love for learning and to achieve maximum academic potential.
  • Provide an orderly and secure atmosphere conducive to maintaining these standards.
