Our Philosophy of Education

The Bible is the philosophical basis of La Molina Christian Schools.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” (2 Timothy 3:16-­‐17)

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: the knowledge of the holy is understanding." (Proverbs 9:10)

“And He (Christ) is before all things, and by Him all things consist...That in all things He might have the preeminence...For in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him...” (Colossians 1:17-­18, 2:9-­10)

 

We believe that education is the responsibility of the parents and that the school acts as an agent in the process, cooperating closely with the parents in every phase of the student’s development. Our view is Christ-­‐centered, and we believe that because all truth is God’s truth, the universe and man are dynamically related to God, and both have the purpose of glorifying Him.

 

We believe that the Bible is the written Word of God and the only source of true wisdom. LMCS is committed to the entire development of the student.

 

We consider that the spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual and social aspects of each person are inseparable, requiring training that considers each aspect of the human being. For this reason, it is indispensible to teach the Bible as an integral part of the curriculum and not just as a religious or philosophical course. The Bible is the central thread that is woven throughout the curriculum and the training of the students.

 

It is our desire that every student acquire an education which allows him to think wisely and with discernment, in other words, to think critically. This level of thinking requires the presence of correct information which allows for correct knowledge which in turn increases the capacity to be able to discern with precision. This order is critical.

LMCS is committed to this fundamental process and considers that the orderly transmission of precise information through qualified teachers, who, with various essential and proven tools, conduct the students to a knowledge which will allow them to think critically. Some of the essential tools are as follows:

  • Comprehension and appreciation of literature in two languages
  • Written and oral expression of ideas and individual conclusions in two languages
  • Identification and solution of problems
  • Fascination and love for learning

We also believe that it is indispensible that, in order to raise children correctly, the family should belong to a local church where the holy doctrine of the Word of God is preached and studied. Only then can a child be raised “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” [Ephesians 6:4] and become an integral person during their life.
