The philosophy of Yorktown Christian Academy is based on the premise that man's ultimate purpose is to glorify God (I Corinthians 6:19, 20; 10:31). Yorktown Christian Academy exists to help each student to reach his full potential by guiding him in developing spiritually, morally, personally, socially, and academically (Luke 2:52). The faculty and staff recognize that only when a student accepts Christ as Savior and yields to His Lordship can he realize his own unique potential (Romans 10:10-13).
Education and learning are biblical imperatives (Deuteronomy 6:, 7; Proverbs 3:1-9); therefore all instruction at Yorktown Christian Academy is biblically based (Deuteronomy 4:2-9). The specific content grows from the following:
- God's mandate at creation for mankind to have dominion over the earth (Genesis 1:1; 26-28), requiring learning in the areas of language, mathematics, the physical and natural sciences, technology, and the fine arts.
- The hostile environment resulting form the fall of man (Genesis 3:9-24), intensifying his need to understand more deeply all of the curricular areas, as well as the social and health related sciences and the study of God's written Word.
- The command for Christians to evangelize the lost and to disciple believers (Matthew 28:18-20), further elevating the need to master all of the above areas.
All subject areas are taught from a biblical perspective and correlate with state and national standards.
