The philosophy of instruction at King's Valley is affirmed in the following:
1. King's Valley believes Christ is the Creator & Sustainer of life.
First and foremost, King's Valley Christian School is a Christian institution committed to sharing the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ. As a ministry of Life Church, we uphold the Bible as the infallible Word of God and accept that all Truth comes from Jesus Christ. Collectively, we provide the tools needed for students to develop an awareness and application of Christian principles, values, and spiritual growth necessary to prepare them for a life of faith-filled service. We believe that a Biblical worldview is integral to all academic study and that morality and integrity as defined in the Bible should govern our attitudes toward each other.
2. King's Valley stands for academic excellence.
We provide opportunities for our students to extend their abilities to reason and think in creative ways to apply what they know to the world around them, and to work together for common goals. As the world changes more and more rapidly, versatile academic skills like critical thinking and creative problem solving become increasingly important and are recognized in our curriculum. We endeavor to prepare each student to attend the high school of his or her choice, and we expect that all of our students will be attending college in the future. Our goal is to provide an excellent foundation for each child’s future.
3. King's Valley helps students discover their talents.
We believe that each student is individually gifted by God to do great things. Core academics do not encompass the vast spectrum of abilities that students possess. Art, drama, foreign language study, music, and sports provide opportunities for students to discover their talents and begin to develop them. We want every athlete to run, every singer and every actor to perform, and every writer and artist to create. Within the core curriculum, we want each mathematician, linguist, historian, and scientist to have opportunity to grow beyond the limits of the normal curriculum and truly excel. King's Valley Christian School works to develop the abilities of each of its students to their full potential.
4. King's Valley believes technology is important for today and tomorrow.
We look toward the future to anticipate the changes that will affect our students, and we work to prepare them for new challenges as they arise. Technology is changing rapidly and students must learn to apply new technology in the classroom in order to be prepared for the workforce. We want to be forward-thinking scholars who are prepared for the best things in tomorrow.
5. King's Valley serves its community.
We believe that one of the basic tenets of Christianity is to help others. We seek out places to help: locally, nationally, and even to the uttermost parts of the earth. The help we send may be spiritual, physical, or educational, but our goal is to involve our students in the process of cheerful giving while receiving nothing in return. Our students should come to appreciate the blessings of God in their own life and in the lives of others, seeing how God uses his children in one place to help those in need.
6. King's Valley recognizes and welcomes its diversity.
We highly value cultural and ethnic diversity, recognizing and respecting the individuality and dignity of all members of the school community. The variety within the KVCS community strengthens our ties to one another and broadens our perspective. This diversity places a responsibility on the school community to encourage respect for people because we are created in God’s image.
7. King's Valley believes in a positive attitude.
We believe that God’s grace and mercy are so great that the only reasonable response is a great attitude and positive outlook from day-to-day. All members of our community commit to being cooperative, edifying, and optimistic. Positive relationships between the members of the community--students, staff, and parents--are valued and encouraged.
