The Framework for Understanding the Principles

character and actions. Life Values are the guiding themes, which result from applying the implications of the truth about who God is to how we should conduct our life. Educational Principles are rooted in the beliefs and values. They create a framework for godly decision-making. They set a prescriptive standard for the ideal attitudes and actions we wish to see lived out in our midst. They embody a posture of the heart and a perspective for doing that which love and wisdom dictates. School Practices are the practical outworking of the educational principles in a given location. The practices detail the procedural dynamics necessary for implementing the principle in a way that shapes how it is to be lived out in any given educational institution.
