In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made, without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men.”
At Joy Christian School we believe that your children, the students that begin this school year, 2015-2016 are God’s gracious, excellent creations. Each student is a gift of God to you and to our campus. And tonight we celebrate them and we celebrate you.
At Joy Christian School we believe that each child, each student, first imagined by God, is fearfully and wonderfully made. Each child was formed in the womb by a God who delights in giving life, who delights in creating in His own image and he desires to give us eternal and abundant life.
At Joy Christian School we celebrate His creation, these students that you are committing to this place, we promise to nurture, to teach and train, and to love.
At Joy Christian School we believe our calling is to educate students to productively and positively take their place in our world. The world is comprised of that which can be seen, felt, touched and experienced in myriad and mysterious ways. Every effort is and will be made to draw our students into the unfolding excitement of education that informs the mind with skills to steward, manage, explore and live in harmony with God’s creation.
At Joy Christian School we view the world through the lens of the Creator, Lord and Master of the universe who has revealed Himself through Jesus Christ as recorded in the 66 books of the Bible, empowered and understood by the presence of His Holy Spirit. This lens of a Christian Worldview shows up in the discovery of math, science, language arts and fine arts. This lens of a Christian Worldview informs our life on the field and in the gym, it informs extra-curricular activities, it informs our art, music and dance.
At Joy Christian School we are intentional in pointing all our students to Jesus. His simple call is “follow me.” With all our heart, mind, soul and strength this is what we, the faculty and staff that serve you and your children do. We “follow Jesus.” And this is the journey at Joy we invite you into.
At Joy Christian School we seek to live “as one”. We are a Christian community called to love and care each for the other, called to pray for one another, called to build each other up, called to affirm one another as God’s creation. We celebrate love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness…..qualities of living and loving that the whole world celebrates to an extent……….. but for those of who follow Jesus they are the heartbeat of the Kingdom of God, the heartbeat of how we do life together.
At Joy Christian School we love our kids, your kids and our intention is to provide the finest education as we grow Christian leaders for the next generation and this we do together, AS ONE. Significant steps have been made this summer as 3 of our four Junior and Senior math classes are now dual enrollment opportunities with Grand Canyon University. A new elementary math curriculum is now in place as we live into the new day of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Music, Dance and Art promise to exceed our greatest expectations. Our sports teams are poised for action, prepared for victories, always reminding us what it means to “soar like eagles.” The classrooms are now ready with teachers ready to teach and lead your students into horizons academically, socially and spiritually.
It is with great joy I welcome you to the 2015-2016 School Year. Welcome home!
