Philsophy

We believe in the development of the whole child. To accomplish this goal, each child’s education will encompass his/her spiritual, mental, and emotional well-being, building a positive self-concept. A positive self-concept includes a living faith peculiar to Christians. The children will have many opportunities to develop their faith in God through Bible study and the academic curriculum. This program will be flexible, success-oriented, and Christian-based, involving home, church, school, and community. Emphasis will be placed on developing acceptable social habits and Christian-like attributes, which should enable each student to be an effective member of his/her home, school, and community.

Code of Christian Ethics

YOU AND YOUR GOD
As a Christian, your first responsibility is to your Lord. In all areas of your life, you are to be an example to the students, other employees, and people outside the school. At all times, you are a witness of the Lord Jesus Christ. The standard of performance of JRS/CDCA employees is revealed in Holy Scripture, and you are never to dishonor His name by doing less than your best in and out of school. Only as you are faithful in prayer, quiet times, and Bible study can you build young lives which will live and honor the Lord.

We make this statement in a sincere attempt to implement a “life of love” (Ephesians 5:2) in daily operations at JRS/CDCA.

YOU AND YOURSELF

Be aware of yourself as an example to your students. If you are a teacher, give yourself to faithful preparation for your classes. All employees must be prompt for class, devotionals, and appointments/meetings. You are effective in teaching and/or influencing young people if you lead by example.

YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES
Whether your position is that of Administrator, teacher, janitor, secretary, volunteer, cook, etc., you are a member of a professional body involved directly or indirectly with the education of young people attending JRS/CDCA and have a responsibility for the soundness of that body. Each of you must adopt a method of praying consistently for each other. As you uphold each other in daily intercession, you will find that you are strengthening each other.

The health of the body also depends on each of you encouraging, counseling, and admonishing each other (1 Cor. 12). All people will make mistakes, and when they do, they are often painfully aware of the error. In many cases, however, Christians can be blind to such things. If you know that a brother or sister is habitually making mistakes, you have a clear biblical mandate to go to him/her with a loving spirit and discuss the matter with him/her. If your brother/sister does not listen, take another colleague with you or ask the Administrator for counsel. When given in love, the concern and counsel of a fellow Christian can help someone through difficult times and restore him/her to the fellowship of the Lord.

Faith Statement

We believe in building lives that begin with a solid foundation under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, from this foundation, we endeavor to develop and enhance the lives of children who enter this institution by providing a Christian-based curriculum and embracing our ethnicity to solidify their educational, spiritual, mental, emotional, and social well-being–thereby honoring God, loving self, and respecting others.
