Educational Philosophy
Warwick River Christian School exists to provide general education in an environment that inspires students and their families to know and follow Jesus Christ. We come to know Jesus, God’s living word, through the Holy Bible, God’s written word, and through his Holy Spirit. With the writer of Proverbs, we agree that the fear (reverent awe) of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge (1:7) and the beginning of wisdom (9:10).”

We nurture the mind, body, soul and spirit of each student through academics, physical education, music, art, and Bible study. We see our Christian school as an extension of the church and home. When all three are united in a Christ-centered perspective, children receive a strong foundation for dealing with life experiences. Where parents are not committed to Christ and the church, we ask them to acknowledge our philosophy and to support the objectives of our school.

At every grade level, we aim to promote high academic standards within the potential of each student; to educate all students according to their developmental needs and cognitive abilities; to help each student gain the skills necessary for effective communication, such as reading, writing, speaking, listening, researching (including information literacy); and to facilitate every student’s discovery that science, math, and history are reflections of God’s creation and plan for the world. We believe that academics are incomplete without an integration of Love and Care. As praise and awareness of God is a vital ingredient of our total curriculum, each class meets weekly for Chapel. They sing and praise God via traditional and contemporary songs, Bible lessons and stories.

As teachers and staff, we pledge ourselves to academic and spiritual excellence. We seek to display fruit of Christ’s spirit—love, joy, peace, and all those named in Galatians 5:22-23. It is our prayer and calling to do everything to the honor and glory of God.
