Our key verse at Calvary Day School is Luke 2:52, which states: “So Jesus grew both in height and in wisdom, and he was loved by God and by all who knew him.” On the surface, this is a nice Bible verse coined at numerous Christian schools across North America. However, for the Administration and educators of Calvary, this verse is a presentation of the guiding force behind everything we do. This verse encompasses the four components of a truly Christian philosophy of education: physical growth, intellectual growth, spiritual growth, and social/interpersonal growth. Many schools call themselves “Christian” simply because they offer a class in Bible at some point in their curriculum. I would assert that this course offering alone does not form the basis for a Christian philosophy of education. Instead, a truly Christian philosophy of education is achieved when biblical truth forms the basis for everything that is taught.
