Our Mission, Our Vision

Mission

The Oaks Christian School, a ministry of Crossroads Community Church, seeks to glorify God by helping Christian parents provide their children with an excellent education, distinguished by a Biblical perspective, resulting in a thoroughly Biblical world and life view.

 

Vision

The Oaks Christian School stands as a lighthouse to those seeking a Christ-centered place of excellence with a loving and caring environment where students can launch into adult life equipped with the character and skills to navigate successfully for God’s service.

 

Statement of Faith

To know Christ and to make Him known together.

 

Our History

The Oaks Christian School, a non-profit, independent, non-denominational Christian school, opened its doors to thirty-two students in August of 1998; grades K-4 through 2nd grade were offered. Meeting in the facilities of Crossroads Community Church, the school was able to comfortably meet the physical needs of its academic body. In the second year, the school grew to 84 students, offering K-4 through 6th grade. Mr. Carver, the founder, felt called by God to prepare the children to function confidently as the Body of Christ in a world which strongly pulls them away from God and His Word. Bill's respect for parental authority and his appreciation for the uniqueness of each child is foundational to the school's philosophy of providing an education which ministers to the whole family. We are a ministry of Crossroads Community Church.

 

Our Faith

The school is absolutely committed to the central principles of the Christian faith but allows for a variety of convictions on secondary doctrinal principles. The people who make up The Oaks Christian School represent a diverse group of evangelical churches; we seek to build mutual respect between individuals and Christian unity between the families in the school.

 

Learning Environment

  1. Our first desire is to serve the parents as they fulfill their God-given responsibility to teach their children.
  2. We seek to impart an understanding of how to learn and develop a hunger to keep on learning through a lifetime.
  3. We wish to stimulate and foster a love for the Creator who has blessed us with the capacity to know Him and His creation.
  4. We attempt to cultivate and nurture Godly character and help the children discover their talents and gifts and use them to the glory of God.
  5. We encourage opportunities for parents and guardians to participate in the education process within the school setting and in enrichment activities.
  6. The Oaks provides an education with high academic standards, in an environment that teaches and models a Christian worldview. Our foundational worldview is based on the unchangeable Word of God---the Bible.
  7. Because God revealed Himself in His creation, in the Bible and in His Son Jesus Christ, we confidently teach all subjects in the light of His Lordship.
  8. We strive to consistently demonstrate Christian love and principles in relationships among students, teachers, administrators and parents.
