North Rome Christian School is strongly committed to an emphasis on Christian Education, including a personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and living according to Biblical principles. Each staff member has professed a personal faith in Jesus Christ and is conscious of setting an example by which others may also be brought to the Savior.
NRCS is committed to a strong academic program. The goal of North Rome’s teachers and staff is to equip each student academically, spiritually, physically, socially, mentally, and morally. Along with educating students, we desire to exemplify Christ in a way that encourages spiritual growth. The purpose is to equip each child in making decisions and choices based on a Biblical worldview. With God’s help, we will fulfill these responsibilities with those students that have been entrusted to us.
· The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge (Proverbs 9:10) and all knowledge has its foundation in the ultimate standard of truth, the Bible.
· Children are an inheritance from the Lord (Psalm 127:3) and actually belong to God, as do all good things that God gives His people. Children are a trust placed in the parent’s care to bring up in the discipline and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4).
· God as creator and sustainer of this universe created man in His own image. But because of Adam’s disobedience, man inherited a sinful nature, and when left to himself, he will not naturally do what is right.
· Our goal is to teach children academically and spiritually through our curriculum.
· God has revealed Himself in a general way in His world and universe, and in a specific way in the Bible. By faith in God’s Son Jesus Christ, man’s soul is regenerated and brought back into fellowship with God.
· The Christian school should provide an atmosphere for knowing Christ personally, for nurturing Christian growth, and for encouraging a commitment to Christian service.
· We believe discipline is Scriptural. Children need discipline; it gives them security within bounds. Parents appreciate discipline, and a teacher’s efficiency is greatly increased by good discipline in the classroom.
· We believe that children need to learn to honor and respect parents and others in authority, that a man’s word is his bond, that they should be proud of America, and that the free enterprise system is still the best system.
· The child’s home, church, and school experience and training should complement each other in promoting academic, spiritual, physical and social growth and should be preparation for life: a life of dependence upon and fellowship with God and service to man.
