Transformation through Education
The foundation of this transformational process is love for God and for each other.
Our education process is cyclical in nature. Each experience is an opportunity for discovery and rediscovery of who God is and how to engage with Him in all things. The process emanates from the atmosphere of our school community. Our atmosphere facilitates experiences, both shared and individual, that encourage skill development critical for students to be productive and effective in our contemporary culture.
As a life-giving atmosphere is cultivated, it facilitates shared experience essential to the growth and maturity of faithful servants of God. We desire every student at CPA to experience being known and valued and to experience challenge and failure, coupled with perseverance and success. We desire every student to experience being a part of God's larger story to contribute to something greater than themselves.
As students share an array of critical experiences, CPA instructors seek to prepare students to be culture shapers by teaching these skills:
- Christian worldview analysis
- Creativity and innovation
- Critical thinking and problem solving
- Communication and collaboration
- Literacy (information, cultural, technology)
- Life skills (flexibility and adaptability, productivity and accountability, leadership and responsibility)
One cannot force belief. We focus on our processes and trust the Holy Spirit to ultimately refine our students' character in Christ. When the atmosphere, experiences, and skills are vibrant and knowledge is filtered through the narrative of biblical truth, students will be equipped for character growth and develop traits such as courage, humility, integrity, and empathy.
