The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
We are a Christian
school because of our belief that Christ is the Son of God and that He is our
Savior. We evidence our Christian belief by hiring Christian administrators and
faculty who demonstrate their faith in the lives they lead and in their
interaction with the students. We also evidence our Christian belief by our
maintenance of a required Bible curriculum in each division of the school. This
classroom study encourages a Biblical literacy that cannot be easily or widely
achieved without the academic rigor of regular, required inspection. In
addition to classroom study, we also provide a variety of opportunities outside
of the classroom, through service, missions, chapel and Bible studies, for
students to explore the ministry and teaching of Christ.
Wesleyan seeks to
introduce children to the reality of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit
through formal and informal contact with Christian teachers and through regular
academic and non-academic study of scripture; to nurture growth of faith in
Christ for students in whom the Holy Spirit has moved through ongoing and
frequent exposure to male and female encouragers of Christianity as a way of
life; and to provide and sponsor regular and scheduled opportunities for
worship, service and Christian inquiry both on and off campus throughout the school
Wesleyan offers is guided by Christian principles. The school believes in a
creator God who has revealed Himself to us through His creation, His
scriptures, His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. We are to use these
revelations to honor Him in humble obedience in all that we say, think and do.
Hebrews 10:25 - Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another —and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Throughout scripture we are reminded that following Christ is best done in community. We need brothers and sisters in Christ for encouragement, accountability, guidance, and fellowship. To that end, Wesleyan offers Bible Studies, divided by grade and gender, to all students who are interested. Each group is led by one or more faculty committed to the growth and guidance of students in their care.
Communal Worship is an integral part of a healthy walk with Christ. To that end, students in Lower School, Middle School and High School attend weekly chapel services in order to worship through music, prayer, and the study of scripture. Each division caters these services to the specific needs of their students, but all three share the same goal – to glorify, honor and praise the name of Christ.
One of the words most often associated with Wesleyan is “family”. The bonds created among the students, faculty and staff tend to resemble those of an intimate family relationship. It is only fitting, therefore, that we incorporate actual, real-life family into the fabric of the school as well. In the Christian Life department, we are always looking for ways to connect parents to each other and to the school, in order to expand the “Wesleyan family” beyond simply the student body and faculty.
