Juniata Mennonite School
Philosophy (Beliefs)

Philosophy

Students are taught from an Anabaptist worldview of servanthood, peace-making, discipleship, and  community.  We exist to produce academically sound, Spirit-directed servant-leaders for future  generations.   Philosophy of Education   Juniata Mennonite School believes that the purpose of Christian  education is to guide children toward a life orientation centered in  Christ and the kingdom values He taught.  The Christian school  partners with parents who bear the primary responsibility for their  child’s education.   Our approach to Christian education rests on the following principles:       God is the author of all truth.      The Bible is the final authority for faith and life.      All curricula are developed through study, discussion, discovery, and practice of subject matter.  New Testament understandings such as discipleship, peacemaking, Christian community, service,  and mission are emphasized throughout the curriculum.      Spiritual, physical, social, emotional, and academic maturation are all crucial to God's design for His  created children.      A child's true value will be found in proper relationship to God and others.      The spiritual and professional integrity of school personnel is vital to the educational experience.
