What is a Christian School?

Christians believe that God has revealed himself to us through the Bible: who he is, what he requires of us, and what he has done for us.

What God reveals affects many areas of life, including our understanding of the word, our ethical systems, our purpose in life, our understanding of the world and how it operates, our relationships and many other things – our world view. Consequently, Christians over the centuries have often felt that to educate their children in a way consistent with the Bible, they have needed to establish schools which employ teachers and staff who understand and believe in this worldview.

Christian schools, teach all their subjects from a distinctively Christian point of view. However, just as importantly, teachers and staff model to the students what it means to live and relate as Christians.

Christian education, though is not seen primarily as the responsibility of the School and the teachers. It is fundamentally a responsibility of the parents of the children. The School is only intended to provide reinforcement for the values and beliefs that are being taught and modelled in the home.

That is why Tyndale Christian School is a “parent-controlled” school. This means it is owned and governed by an Association of like-minded parents who work together to operate a school according to their Christian beliefs which are outlined in Tyndale's Educational Creed.
