Welcome to Parkway Christian School
CHALLENGING MINDS | CAPTURING HEARTS | CULTIVATING GIFTS
Parkway’s vision and mission can be summarized with our motto: Challenging Minds, Capturing Hearts, and Cultivating Gifts. We consider this the framework that gives Parkway a unique identity. By filtering everything through this framework, we are best able to accomplish our goal of educating the whole student in preparation for future endeavors utilizing a Biblical worldview.
Our vision is to develop a Christian School that challenges students to reach their highest potential academically, presents the gospel in a way that promotes a Biblical worldview, and identifies and develops individual gifts and talents.
"Our focus is on each individual student, and how their unique gifts and abilities can be used to impact this world for Christ." - Lila Place (Head of School)
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.
We believe that the church, family, and school are to partner together to train up our youth, therefore, our policies and programs are built to strengthen both the family and Church. By implementing a philosophy of education termed Kingdom Education, we purpose to align every area of our community with the Bible and teach from a biblical worldview.
At Parkway Christian School, we endeavor to offer a broad, differentiated curriculum for our academic programs of study including honors and AP classes. Knowing that students come to us with many different backgrounds and abilities, our programs are designed to meet the needs of all students, helping each one reach their full potential. 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 Christian Schools International and AdvancED accreditation.
The genuine care and compassion for the students, expressed by the teachers and staff, is beyond measure. Knowing that they are not just fulfilling a job in educating my children, but that they are praying for them and greatly surpassing normal responsibilities, is something that this world needs more of. - Parkway Christian School Parent
