Spiritual/ Character Development
Character is developed through meaningful experience and intentional instruction. Daily worship, service projects, and an atmosphere of grace build godly character in our students.
A highlight of Spa Christian is the time of daily worship. The entire school gathers to praise God with contemporary praise songs and hymns. Each child has opportunity to lead a scripture verse and the pledges. This is one aspect of our school that alumni frequently tell us that they miss most about our school.
A foundation of Biblical knowledge and insight is crucial in developing a solid understanding of every area of learning and academics. God’s revelation about Himself and His world is the foundation. Knowing His purpose in creation and in redeeming a people for Himself makes the difference as children see a reason to study, to learn, to grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man. (Luke 2:52)
Spa Christian students will be prepared to move on to higher grades with a sense of how to interpret the world around them from a Christian perspective built upon a Biblical foundation.
