In 2005, she obtained a Master’s Degree in Christian Education (MSCE) Magna Cum Laude from Baptist Bible College of Pennsylvania. Philosophy of Christian Education: “Christian education” simply put is the process of training and nurturing a student to grow in Christ-like character and academic abilities for the glory of God and for service to others. Since the primary responsibility for training a child rests with parents, a Christian school should serve as an extension of the family in that God-given task. The foundation of a truly “Christian” education is the infallible authority of the Bible as the source of all truth and the filter through which all subject matter is processed (I John 4:1). A Christian curriculum delivered through a staff of born again believers is at the core of a successful Christian school. The goal of Christian education is life change. Only when a student accepts Christ as Savior and yields to His Lordship can he realize his own unique potential (Phil. 1:10). As a result of instilling Biblical values, stimulating critical thinking skills, and developing Christian character traits, a child will be equipped to serve God faithfully throughout their lives in the home, church and community. The desired end result of Christian education is a disciple with a Christian worldview (Psalm 24:1) who is well prepared for faithful service (2 Tim. 2:15).
