The Christian School of York is committed to raising children to love and serve the Lord. To accomplish this, we believe that staff and families must subscribe to core values as the basis of faith.
Fostering a Biblical Worldview
All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
We teach the Bible, as the authoritative and infallible Word of God both as an explicit text and as a tool for understanding all subjects in light of the revelation of who God is.
We support students' commitment to the Lord and their pursuit of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We assist students to think critically by viewing the world through the lens of scripture.
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
2 Peter 1:5-7
We employ practical teaching and application of the Word of God.
We encourage our students to live lives of Godly character defined by righteousness and wisdom, holding them accountable to exhibit Christ-like behavior.
We acknowledge that Godly character is made complete through the work of the Holy Spirit.
