Education is never neutral. It is more than the mere transmission of facts; it involves the communication of life principles and values and, therefore, requires a spiritual context. Because God created, sustains and will consummate all things through His Son, Jesus Christ, we believe that facts, whether mathematical, historical, scientific, or otherwise, can only represent truth if they are taught in the context of a Christian worldview. This belief will permeate our goals and objectives, our teaching methods and our curriculum.
We love Jesus, and everything we do is centered around Him. Even in its inaugural year, Oakwell students have stated, "Wow, I feel so peaceful when I am at Oakwell!" One student, at home and in bed for the night, came down to his mom and dad to say, "I can't sleep because I keep thinking of how much I love Oakwell!" Honestly, a response like this can only be attributed to the presence of God.
You will know a tree by its fruit, and the fruit of Oakwell Academy is healthy. This health comes from the school and our families being centered on Jesus. He is our only source and life.
