Educational Goals

For the intellectual growth of the student, Neighborhood’s goals are to:

  • promote high academic standards within the potential of the individual as uniquely created by God and to help the student realize his full academic potential;
  • help the student communicate by teaching the fundamental processes of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and mathematics;
  • teach and encourage the use of good study habits;
  • motivate the student to pursue independent studying areas of personal interest;
  • develop creative and critical thinking and the proper use of Biblical criteria for evaluation;
  • develop good citizenship through developing understanding and appreciation of our Christian and American heritage of responsible freedom, human dignity and acceptance of authority;
  • discuss current affairs in the various fields and relate them to God’s plan for man;
  • produce an understanding and appreciation for God’s world, an awareness of man’s role in his environment and his God–given responsibilities to use and preserve it properly;
  • cultivate an appreciation of the fine arts through the development of the student’s understanding and personal expression.

For the spiritual and moral growth of the student, Neighborhood’s goals are to:

  • teach the Bible as God’s inspired Word and to develop attitudes of love and respect toward it;
  • teach a child to pray and grow in intimacy with Jesus Christ;
  • lead the pupil to a decision of confessing Christ as Savior and Lord;
  • develop a desire to know and obey the will of God daily;
  • equip the student to carry out the will of God daily;
  • impart an understanding of each Christian’s place in the church;
  • develop proper attitudes toward godliness and sin as they grow in the “fruit of the Spirit”;
  • teach submission to authority;
  • encourage the development of self-discipline and responsibility;
  • help the student develop for himself a Christian world view by integrating life and studies with the Bible; and
  • teach the basic doctrines of the Bible (see our Statement of Faith).

For the personal and social development of the student, Neighborhood’s goals are to:

  • help the student develop his personality by accepting himself as a unique individual created in the image of God and by developing his own capabilities;
  • teach the student to treat everyone with love and respect since they, too, are made in God’s image;
  • make the student a contributing member of his society;
  • promote responsible understanding of time as a God-given commodity;
  • show a realistic and Biblical view of life and work and provide skills both for personal relationships and for future endeavors;
  • develop both good and proper attitudes toward marriage and the family and also the understanding and skills needed to establish God–honoring homes;
  • promote physical fitness, good health habits, and wise use of the body as the temple of God;
  • impart a Biblical attitude toward material things and to encourage students to use them for God’s glory.
