Our Philosophy of Education

La Molina Christian Schools provides a Christ-centered education with the Bible as its philosophical foundation. The universe and everything that exists in it were created by God, who is the Sovereign Lord.  The supreme purpose of human beings is to glorify God and enjoy a personal relationship with Him forever.

 

We hold that the Bible is inspired and that it thoroughly equips us for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17); it is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness. Therefore, the education we offer is based on the premise that all truth in the universe is God's truth and that human beings can access, study and cling to that truth (John 8:32).

 

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding"(Proverbs 9:10). For people to obtain true wisdom and understanding, it is essential to teach in the love of God and with respect for Him, as well as to sow a passion for knowing God through His Word and through the investigation of His creation. As an educational institution, we encourage the general study of a wide range of knowledge, positions, and theories, and, at the same time, we provide the tools of discernment that allow the student to "test all things and hold fast what is good" (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22).

 

We consider the spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual, and social aspects of each individual to be inseparable, requiring an education that takes into account every aspect of human beings.  Therefore, we believe it is essential to teach the Bible as an integral part of the curriculum and not just as a religious course. The Bible is the central thread woven into the entire curriculum to guide the formation of the student.

 

Our academic approach is aimed at establishing a fascination for learning by following an ordered sequence, starting with teaching basic concepts that generate valuable information and working to consolidate knowledge in each area, thus allowing the development of critical thinking.

 

To ensure that the formation of our students transcends their years at the school, we believe it is necessary for the family to be part of a community of Christians (local church) that is fully committed to the Gospel of God's grace and studies the sound doctrine of His Word (Ephesians 6:4).

 

With the understanding that the formation and education of children is the responsibility of the parents, LMCS cooperates with the parents by providing the tools necessary for the students' all-around development throughout the educational process, establishing the Word of God as the foundation.
