Zion Christian School offers a rigorous liberal arts curriculum appropriate for college preparation and vocational training, as well as early childhood education, elementary school, and junior high. We trust that our students will learn to the best of their abilities, as they are called to do all things as unto the Lord (Col 3:23). We expect that our administrators, teachers, and students alike will strive joyfully and zealously to discover, exercise, and develop all the gifts God has given them.
As a campus serving students from 3 to 18 years of age, we have a special environment in which to learn and grow from each other. Older students are able to advise younger ones, while the smallest children reflect the childlike awe and wonder of God and His creation.
This engagement between grades and ages happens every day in impromptu hall and classroom interactions, as well as intentional opportunities. These programs include our “reading buddies,” students serving as teacher aides or recess monitors, and the presentation of projects and labs for younger students.
In this way our families are engaged with one another on a regular basis, and the result is a supportive sense of community. We are grateful for these opportunities to develop tomorrow’s leaders and look forward to how these mentoring opportunities will serve our students in their future callings.
Our student and family handbook is intended to give you the information you need to work together with the Zion staff in providing a distinctly Christian environment and education for each one of our students.
We request that all parents not only read the entire handbook, but also help in enforcing the policies and procedures described. Students are also requested to read the handbook, committing themselves not only to abide by rules, but also to work with the staff in a spirit of Christian love and submission for the greater good.
It is expected that all parents will be aware of what their children wear to school and will support the school in requiring clothing which shows consideration for the feelings and convictions of others and is consistent with Christian modesty and humility.
