In pursuit of excellence in education, the mission of Parkway Christian School is to function as an extension of the Christ‐centered, Bible‐believing home and church by partnering with parents in providing an education, which promotes the development of the whole child: spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically, and artistically.
As a multi denominational school, we adhere to the words of Augustine "in essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things love." We rely on the Word for instruction and directing students to parents for doctrinal questions. What your child learns at school should complement, instead of contradict, what is learned in your home and at your church.
Statements of faith
In our effort to partner with the home and church we design our programs to reflect the teaching of both home and church by creating a climate that has Christ as preeminent. Our teachings adhere to the belief that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and as stated in II Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,”
We believe that the church, family, and school are to partner together to train up our youth, and endeavor to strengthen both the family and church through our policies and programs. By implementing a philosophy of education termed Kingdom Education, we align all that we do with the Bible, and teach from a biblical worldview.

STRONG CURRICULUM, INCLUDING BIBLE
At Parkway Christian School, we endeavor to offer a broad curriculum for our academic programs of study using differentiated instruction, and by including honors and AP classes. We recognize that students come to us with many different backgrounds and abilities, and that our programs must be designed to meet the needs of all students, helping each one reach their full potential. Proverbs 22:6 admonishes us to: “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Our belief is that by concentrating on the gifts and abilities of each student, integrating the biblical worldview in each subject, and offering a comprehensive curriculum that includes classes for a wide variety of students, we are fulfilling this directive. In addition, we believe students attending Christian schools should have ample opportunity to learn from the Bible, and therefore, Bible is considered not just a spiritual class but an academic one as well. We have AdvancED accreditation.
BIBLICAL FOCUS IN ALL ASPECTS OF SCHOOL LIFE
Our required Bible classes are developed to provide a solid, biblical foundation at every level, and students are given an opportunity to learn more about the Savior through the Word, resulting in a deeper understanding of Christianity. Parkway adds a deeper dimension to biblical understanding with the inclusion of biblical worldview integration. This integration makes sure the Bible is woven into all teaching, not just provided as an independent subject. Each teacher participates in an extensive training program to learn how to integrate biblical concepts into every subject. This allows for a seamless weaving of the Bible into every aspect of academics and fine arts. To supplement these procedures and classes, students in elementary are involved in a ministry group, where they learn how to serve by praying, sign language, media, and other areas of interest. Students in Middle School and High School are encouraged to participate in leadership groups where students learn servant leadership both in school and by going into the community to serve. Finally, our commitment to celebrating the uniqueness of each individual student provides the framework of all of our programs and policies. In these ways and many others, Parkway seeks to live out our motto, Challenging Minds, Capturing Hearts, and Cultivating Gifts.
