Our philosophy is simple. San Francisco Christian School is dedicated to a Christian Philosophy of Education. Our Christian education is administered in a spiritual atmosphere and recognizes God as the Supreme source of all knowledge and wisdom.
Education at SFCS is based on the traditional Christian approach in contrast to the humanist, progressive systems of contemporary education. We believe the Lord’s approach provides students with the best possible programs and methods of study.
SFCS believes Christian education is the best content to be in harmony with “whatsoever things are true…honest…just…pure…lovely… [and] of good report…” (Philippians 4:8). We believe that the classroom methods should be teacher directed (Deuteronomy 6:7), with the student acquiring knowledge through studying (II Timothy 2:15), researching (John 5:39), reasoning (Acts 24:25), relating (Luke 24:27) and recording (III John 12).
We dedicate ourselves to the truth that Christian education is the only valid education. Our education is grounded in the person and character of God as revealed in His Word through the leading of the Holy Spirit. True education is God-centered rather than man-centered. This educational approach opposes the current humanistic and progressive systems of education.
