Guiding Principles

Call to Action









CCA Guiding Principles are: 1) Christian Principles and Character  2) Christ Centered Academic Excellence

GUIDING PRINCIPLE 1
CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES and CHARACTER. It is founded on Galatians 5:22-26. Galatians 5:22-26 – “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.”
This guiding principle breaks down into four main goals with supporting scripture references:

1) Love for God – Matthew 22:37
2) Love for Learning – Proverbs 1:5
3) Love for Others – Matthew 22:39
4) Love for Country – Excerpt from Planned Patriotism

Matthew 22:37 – ….“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind”
Proverbs 1:5 – “A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel”
Matthew 22:39 – “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”
Excerpt from Planned Patriotism – “Patriotism is an inner feeling that is difficult to define; for each of us it has a different meaning and each of us meets it with a different emotional reaction—feelings of pride, gaiety, a lump in the throat and a tear in the eye, a swelling of the chest and quickened breath, a fierce desire to battle for that which we believe, and even the dedication of one’s life to a cause.”

GUIDING PRINCIPLE 2

CHRIST CENTERED ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE. It is founded on Colossians 3:23.
Colossians 3:23 – “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men”.
This guiding principle breaks down into four main goals with supporting scripture references:
To:

1) Provide a Safe, Loving, Nurturing, and Christian Environment – Colossians 2:2-4, 6-8

2) Develop a God-Centered and Biblical World View – Isaiah 43:7

3) Develop the Ability to Think Creatively and Critically – Proverbs 1:5

4) Partner with the Home and the Church in Training the Child – Proverbs 22:6

Colossians 2:2-4, 6-8 – “That their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ; in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Now this I say, lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words. As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him, and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.”
Isaiah 43:7 – “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
Proverbs 1:5 – “A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel”
Proverbs22:6 – “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart form it.”
