Greater Beckley Christian School is dedicated to inspiring children to lead Christ-centered lives. We support parents in their God-given responsibility of educating children by striving to provide quality spiritual, academic, personal, and social instruction in the light of God’s Word.
The mission of Greater Beckley Christian School is one of preparing children to live a productive life for the Lord Jesus Christ. While most graduates of Greater Beckley Christian School will choose to continue their education beyond high school, the focus of the curricular and instructional systems will be one of helping each child grow, both spiritually and academically from whatever level of spiritual and academic achievements he has reached. Admissions policies will reflect what the school is able to do for those children admitted. Attention will be given to the following three areas:
Greater Beckley Christian School is dedicated to the edification of children in accordance with Ephesians 4:12, “For the perfecting (equipping) of the saints for the work of the ministry…” Therefore, attention will be given to spiritual growth and development, equipping children to live a life of obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ. Every effort will be made to develop within children a spiritual knowledge base for making wise decisions about life and to develop both the spiritual and natural gifts of each child to a level appropriate for high school graduates.
Greater Beckley Christian School is dedicated to the education of children in accordance with the broad areas of development stated in Luke 2:52, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” Therefore, attention will be given to the mental, physical, and social growth of children. The primary purpose of the academic program is to prepare students for some form of education beyond high school, perhaps Christian education, liberal arts education, or vocational education. Those choosing not to continue education beyond high school will be advanced academically for functioning as an adjusted and productive citizen of this nation.
Greater Beckley Christian School is dedicated to the evangelization of those children who may not be saved. This is especially true within the elementary school which will include a number of children who have not yet received the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Savior. However, evangelization will be carried out by teachers and mature students on a one-to-one basis. Evangelization, while very important and not to be minimized, will be secondary to the mission to edify and educate children as stated above.
