CCS Expected Student Outcomes / Goals

Cornerstone Christian School believes that only through ministering to the whole child―mind, body, and spirit―can we then train true witnesses to the community. It is our desire that our ministry will be to families locally through our students, and ultimately to the entire world.  In order to accomplish this task, we have divided our goals into four areas of training: spiritual, educational, social, and physical.

 

We desire the following outcomes:

A. Spiritual Outcomes

  1. The students will understand that the Bible is the inspired and the only infallible, authoritative Word of God (II Timothy 3:15-17).

  2. The students will understand and commit to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9).

  3. The students will know, understand, and apply God's word in their daily lives (Romans 12:1-2).

  4. The students will develop the mind of Christ towards Godliness through Bible memorization and the development of intensive Bible study skills (I Timothy 4:7, II Timothy 2:3-7, Psalm 119:11, II Timothy 2:15).

  5. The students will personally respond to and carry out the Great Commission locally and around the world in a culturally sensitive manner (Matthew 28:18-20).

  6. The students will respect God's authority and His authority structure as demonstrated through the lives of parents, teachers, and staff (Ephesians 6:1-3).

B. Educational Outcomes

  1. Students will develop self-discipline and learn to take responsibility for one’s own life and actions (Proverbs 16:32, Romans 12:3).

  2. Students will develop a Christian worldview by learning to discern all knowledge, thought and action from a Biblical perspective (II Peter 1:3).

  3. Students will develop good study skills, thus becoming students who desire true excellence (II             Timothy 2:3-7).

  4. Students will know, understand, and apply God’s word in daily life (Hebrews 4:15).

  5. Students will develop a Biblical understanding of the history of the world through the eyes of God, and how our nation fits into God’s plan for His church (Luke 7:15).

C. Social Outcomes

  1. Students will develop a positive self-image, as one who is created in the image of God (Ephesians 5:21).

  2. Students will develop Biblical skills for a Christ like personal and social life (Psalm 119:9-16).

  3. Students will have a critical appreciation of languages and cultures of other people’s, dispelling prejudice, promoting inter-ethnic harmony, and encouraging Biblical hospitality for the alien and stranger (I Corinthians 12:12).

D. Physical Outcomes

  1. Each student will respect his or her body as the “Temple of the Holy Spirit” (I Corinthians 6:19-20).

  2. Students will understand that, through salvation, our bodies are to become a living sacrifice   for God (Romans 12:1).

  3. Students will have respect for all human life as being “fearfully and wonderfully” created by the almighty God (Psalm 139:14).

  4. Students will be prepared to practice the principles of healthy, moral family living (Ephesians 6:1-3).
