Cortland Christian Academy's Core Values
The objectives in building a private Christian school are to obey the Scriptural imperatives of Deuteronomy 6:5-7a. "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children." and of Proverbs 22:6 "train up a child in the way he should go". Teaching is training. Training for life must include training for eternity.
A Christian school is an extension of the Christian home in training young people for time and eternity in a Christian environment. The school staff works closely with parents to train the whole child.
Attendance at this school is a privilege and not a right. The goals of this school are not to reform but to train youth of every ability in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship. This school stands without apology for the Gospel and the highest standards of morality and Christian behavior. We will endeavor to:
...teach that the Bible is the only Word of God. It is practical and important. Pro. 30:6, II Tim. 3:16, Job 23:12b
...teach that application of Biblical principles to every part of daily life.
…teach the students to get along with non-Christians and with Christians who hold differing views
...integrate academic subjects with the Bible.
...teach that God is the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe and man. (Col. 1:16, 17)
...teach the student to apply himself to his work and to fulfill his various responsibilities. (II Tim. 2:15)
