a love of Truth and lifetime learning.
We exist by God’s grace, for His glory, striving to instill within our students a love of Truth and lifetime learning.
Our mission is (1) to teach children to love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind & strength (Mk.12:30, Deut.6:5), love their neighbor, and (2) to love learning and to think for themselves in the context of His Word in every moment.
A. We strive with parents to instruct students in the Word of God and classical curricula, that they may gain a desire for Truth and an understanding of what is beautiful and good (Jn. 17:17).
B. We want to give our students the tools necessary for lifelong learning. By utilizing the classical model, students learn to think through ideas in a well-informed, logical manner, and to respectfully articulate their thought process (speak the truth in love) with those who may not understand or agree with their position.
C. Humility, integrity, hard-work, biblical priorities, and honesty are among the values we work to instill in our students during their time at GCS.
GOALS FOR OUR GRADUATES
It is our hope that GCS graduates will be humbly confident leaders, with an unshakable devotion to the Word of God, for a lifetime of faithful and consistent obedience to the Lord, on the long road of grace and learning that never ends.
We heartily agree with what is stated in the Mission and Vision statement of
“We aim to graduate young men and women who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding; who reason persuasively and articulate precisely; who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in the light of the Scriptures; and who do so with eagerness in joyful submission to God. We desire them to recognize cultural influences as distinct from biblical, and to be unswayed towards evil by the former.
We aim to find them well-prepared in all situations, possessing both information and the knowledge of how to use it. We desire they be socially graceful and spiritually gracious; equipped with and understanding the tools of learning; desiring to grow in understanding, yet fully realizing the limitations and foolishness of the wisdom of this world.
We desire they have a heart for the lost and the courage to seek to dissuade those who are stumbling towards destruction; that they distinguish real religion from religion in form only; and that they possess the former, knowing and loving the Lord Jesus Christ. And all these we desire them to possess with humility and gratitude to God.
We likewise aim to cultivate these same qualities in our staff and to see them well paid so that they may make a career at Logos. We desire them to be professional and diligent in their work, gifted in teaching, loving their students and their subjects.
We desire they clearly understand classical education, how it works in their classroom and how their work fits into the whole; that they possess a lifelong hunger to learn and grow; and that they have opportunity to be refreshed and renewed. We desire to see them coach and nurture new staff and to serve as academic mentors to students. We look to see them mature in Christ, growing in the knowledge of God, their own children walking with the Lord.
We aim to cultivate in our parents a sense of responsibility for the school; to see them well informed about the goals of our classical and Christ-centered approach. We desire them to grow with the school, involved in and excited about the journey. We aim to help them to follow biblical principles in addressing concerns, to be inclined to hearing both sides of a story before rendering a verdict, and to embrace the Scripture’s injunctions to encourage and stir up one another to love and good works.
Finally, in our relationship with our community, we aim to be above reproach in our business dealings and supportive of the local business community. We further seek to exemplify the unity of the body of Christ, to develop greater fellowship and understanding with the churches, and to bring honor to our Lord in all our endeavors.”
