In 1 Corinthians 11:1 Paul says, “Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.” In Ephesians 5:1-2 Paul states, “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.” And finally in Luke 6:40 Jesus says, “A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher.”
The Bible is clear that God designed people to be imitators. It is not a matter of if a person will imitate someone else, but a matter of who. We clearly and easily see this in young children as they play house, school or participate in a sport. It is easy to recognize if they are imitating mom, dad, their teacher or a famous (infamous?) athlete. God designed us this way because He wants us to imitate or to reflect His divine image, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thus, it is of great importance that our children are surrounded by people who are imitating Christ.
At New Covenant School we hire teachers and faculty who strive to reflect Christ to each student. They humbly share their testimony in both words and actions. They pray with students and share the Word of God with them. They desire to show the students how Christ is in and through all subjects. And they do this in a way that echoes Paul’s words, “Imitate me, as I imitate Christ.”
Here is a great article on the impact of a Classical Christian education.
From the article, “…15 to 25 years from now, America’s leadership will be heavily influenced, if not dominated, by men and women who were homeschooled or attended schools with curriculums based on a classical Christian education model including logic and rhetoric. The reason? Unlike far too many young people in too many other educational situations, these students are learning how to think and to communicate.”
Please watch this short video on why Classical Christian education is the best possible education method to help every child reach their God given potential.
