Philosophy of Education
The Watersprings School Philosophy of Education is based on the truth that God’s word is the standard for all truth, and that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant and authoritative work of God. God has created and sustains all things. Therefore, the universe and man were created by God to glorify Him. Because of the sin nature, man cannot, through his own efforts, know or glorify God. It is only by accepting God’s free gift that man receives salvation through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
As an extension of the Christian home, Watersprings School supports parents who seek to obey Biblical instruction. Parents have the primary responsibility in educating their children in the ways of the Lord. Our purpose is to come alongside parents in that education, transforming and training our students according to the example of our Lord Jesus Christ, so that they can be a godly influence in the world.
For our 6th -12th graders, we take a discipleship approach to prepare our students to live a life that is pleasing to the Lord. In these grades we encourage students to profess Jesus Christ as their Savior and to have a personal walk with Jesus. Regular church attendance is strongly encouraged.
