Each family is asked to sign a written copy of the statement, thus affirming their support of the School’s mission and policies.
We the families and staff of Kuyper Christian Prep School affirm the following:
THE SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT:
“Our mission is to humbly provide an excellent classical education, challenging students to understand the responsibilities of personal freedom for the purpose of advancing the Kingdom of God.”
Our Mission Statement is based on the belief that to whom much is given, much is required. Only one in seventeen people have the privilege of living in the United States of America, the most prosperous country on earth. As Americans we enjoy a rich heritage of political and religious liberty and the greatest amount of personal freedom of any people. We are truly an experiment in self-government under law.
The founding fathers declared their firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence and pledged to each other their Lives, Fortunes, and their sacred Honor.
The privileges of a free market economy, personal liberty, and prosperity should be valued as gifts from God almighty. We should then use our wealth and freedom to accomplish God’s eternal purposes.
We desire to instill in our students the responsibility to preserve the legacy of what it means to be an American. We train students with the end in mind that their education should ultimately be used to further the Kingdom of God on earth.
Therefore, we endeavor to equip every student at Kuyper with the greatest academic education and an understanding of their American heritage. We will challenge every student to achieve the highest level of personal discipline, moral development, and dependence upon God.
School Life (from the Kuyper Preparatory School Educational Philosophy)
Students and parents respect Kuyper Preparatory School teachers, as role models and instructors, for their commitment to truth and their genuine concern for children. Intelligence, creativity, responsibility, and loyalty are characteristics of the faculty. Parents expect and appreciate direct and regular communication from faculty regarding their children. Reciprocally, parents are responsive to suggestions from teachers and administrators for helping students.
The headmaster, under the authority of the Board of Directors, oversees the implementation of the Mission Statement in the school. In their capacities as policy-makers and community leaders, these administrators advance the School’s role as an institution dedicated to providing the best education for children. By providing Biblical moral and ethical standards, the School prepares its students to accept the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship in a democratic society that honors and respects Jesus Christ. Every child is capable of achieving his potential to the fullest extent when afforded respect, fairness, kindness, discipline, and appropriate instruction.
THEREFORE WE SUPPORT the Mission Statement as it is expressed in the curriculum and school culture of the School. We uphold the Student/Parent Handbooks. This includes support of the high academic standards of our school; the uniform code; the code of discipline; the code of good sportsmanship in athletics; and a general culture of respect for the administrators, teachers, and students of Kuyper Preparatory School.
