Shiloh Hills Christian School seeks to provide, in a loving and safe environment, a balanced and quality education with a Christian emphasis in academics, fine arts, and athletics.  Its foundation is the Word of God.

VISION STATEMENT

Educating - Molding - Equipping

STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY

Shiloh Hills Christian School is founded upon the Bible, God’s inspired, inerrant revelation. We believe in God’s creation and revelation (John 14:6; John 1:1; Colossians 1:16, 17; John 17:17; Psalm 19:1; Romans 1:20). We believe children are a gift of God (Psalm 127:3-5). We believe that God has given the responsibility for educating the children to the parents (Deuteronomy 6:6, 7). We believe that He permits the Christian school to exist within His will and to act on behalf of the parents in educating their children. Education finds its purpose in the glory of God (I Corinthians 10:31). The redemption of the child, and the growth of the child should be toward Christ-likeness (II Peter 3:9; Romans 8:29; II Corinthians 3:18). Christian education should consider the whole child: cognitive, physical, spiritual, and social as defined in Luke 2:52. Christian education must consider the developmental growth of the child as confirmed in I Corinthians 13:11. Christian education should include only those activities of which Christ can be center.

STATEMENT OF SCHOOL GOALS

Each child shall learn how to establish and maintain a Biblical relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ and God’s specific purpose for the life of that individual child. In order to achieve this goal, the child must:

  • Be brought to realize his need and condition before God.
  • Be brought to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Be instructed in the teachings of the Bible.
  • Be motivated to full surrender and service.
  • Be brought to a realization of his responsibility to God and others to carry the Gospel both near and far.
  • Be loyal to his local church in attendance, service, and giving.


Each child should receive guidance and direction in developing to his highest potential spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically. In order to achieve this goal, the child must:

  • Be guided by teaching and example toward a desire and a love for learning.
  • Be provided with appropriate and sufficient opportunities to expand his interest and abilities.
  • Be sufficiently grounded in the essential verbal and computation skills.
  • Be trained carefully in how to live as well as how to make a living.
  • Be properly grounded in Christian ethics and moral values as delineated in the Bible.
  • Be challenged to reason and to solve problems from a basis of Biblical truth and be provided with the facts and concepts, which are the foundation for reason and problem solving.
  • Develop an appreciation of work as desirable, honorable, rewarding, and necessary to fulfill God’s purpose for providing the daily needs of man.
  • Develop an awareness of an ability to manage the responsibility for the stewardship of his financial resources and economic obligations.


Each child should understand and use basic requirements of responsible citizenship and should appreciate the American democratic way of life. Responsible citizenship is based principally upon knowledge of and a willingness to pursue the rights, privileges, and responsibilities given to each citizen by the Bible and the United States Constitution. Every child therefore needs:

  • Respect for and obedience to all God-given authority in the home, church, school, community, and nation.
  • Respect for the rights, properties, and well being of others.
  • Knowledge and appreciation of the history of our community, state, and nation.
  • Knowledge of our political system and the ability to make intelligent choices between opposing issues and candidates.
  • Knowledge and appreciation of our free enterprise system.
  • Knowledge of the electoral system, how to vote, and how to make his voice heard in the American democratic system.


Each child should develop an appreciation of and satisfactory relationship with other persons. Because the process of living involves living with and for other people, the child should:

  • Gain an understanding and appreciation of the Biblical view of the home.
  • Gain an understanding and appreciation of the organization and responsibilities of the local church.
  • Gain competence in interpersonal and group relationships.
  • Gain a vision of the needs of the people of the world both spiritually and materially.
  • Gain a willingness to establish good relationships to those in authority as well as to those of his peer group.


Each child should develop an appreciation of nature and aesthetic values. Because God is the Creator of all that is harmonious, symmetrical, orderly, and beautiful, the child should:

  • Develop an ability to make intellectual and Scriptural value judgments about right and wrong in regard to man’s artistic endeavors.
  • Develop an enjoyment of the natural beauty and orderliness of creation.
  • Develop a respect for the conservation of the creation and ecological balance.
  • Develop knowledge of cultural achievements both past and present.
  • Develop acceptable skills, crafts, or hobbies to provide enjoyment in times of leisure.


Each parent should view the school as an extension of, reinforcement of, and partner with the home. The God-given responsibility to “train up a child in the way he should go” belongs to the parents. The local church and Christian school were established to assist the parent in carrying out this responsibility. Therefore the parent:

  • Needs to be aware of the goals, objectives, standards, and instruction of the school.
  • Needs to be willing to uphold the respect of the child for the school, its administration, and staff.
  • Needs to be willing to cooperate in any necessary discipline of the student both in conduct and appearance.
  • Needs to feel welcome to communicate with the administration and staff of the school.
  • Needs to hear both sides of an issue before taking a position.


Every teacher should view the school as his God-given ministry, the parents as his co-workers, and the children as the reason for this ministry. An effective teacher never stops learning. He learns as he teaches and he learns in order to improve his teaching. Because education is a sacred ministry, the Christian teacher:

  • Must realize he teaches more by modeling than by method.
  • Must realize that teaching is giving of self, not getting for self.
  • Must realize that real teaching takes time; therefore, much patience and understanding are necessary.
  • Must realize that the teacher exists for the students, not the students for the teacher.
  • Must realize that dealing with souls is a life or death, Heaven or Hell matter, and some failures are eternal.
  • Must realize that he has not taught until someone has learned.
  • Must realize that while a child is born with a sinful nature, he does not always do that which is wrong.
  • Must appreciate the uniqueness of each individual child as being made in the image of God and seek to develop a positive relationship with each child.
