Providing Transformative Education
Many educational approaches see the students primarily as a thinker, and learning is only focused on cognitive things (head knowledge). Christian education does not stop at head knowledge. We aim to go beyond into a deeper understanding that leads to wisdom.
Christian education recognizes the critical importance of the desires of the heart that shape the purpose of learning and one's world view. We understand that learning in God's world is designed to lead believers to responsible action and service. God has placed us in His world to rule over it in loving service to Him - love God and love our neighbor.
Learning for understanding involves equipping students to identify, test, and critique the underlying meanings and assumptions implicit in all the material they explore. It involves structuring learning to provide a gradual broadening of experience and incremental building of understanding, as new experiences and discoveries are incorporated.
AT EAST LINN CHRISTIAN BEING "A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL FOR ALL" IS NOT JUST A SLOGAN. IT'S OUR IDENTITY.
We are committed to providing access to an inter-denominational, financially diverse community of students who are in agreement with the school's mission and doctrine statement. Our desire is to support students as they discover their calling and challenge them to use their God-given abilities and talents to live with purpose in every area - from academics to athletics, from spiritual formation to serve, from extracurricular activities to enrichment opportunities.
