The Role of Studying the Bible in Your Child’s Education

The Role of Studying the Bible in Your Child’s Education

How the Word of God Is at the Heart of Our Curriculum

“But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”  – 2 Timothy 3:14-15

At Medina Christian Academy, the Word of God is at the heart of our curriculum. We teach all subjects from a Christian perspective. This is the foundation of our school’s Statement of Faith: We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, and the Christian’s final authority from God.

These are just a few of the ways that we incorporate studying the Bible into our students’ curriculum at every grade level, from preschool through the twelfth grade:

• Bible time for our PreK3 and PreK4 classes
• Weekly Bible memorization verse for Lower School students
• Weekly Chapel visits for all students
• Bible courses taken each semester in the Upper School

What role does studying the Bible play in your child’s education at MCA, and why is it important? We believe that our students can only know God and develop a strong relationship with Christ by reading, studying, and engaging in Bible study. Our students are encouraged not only to read the Bible but to discuss it, share and explore their questions, and ultimately find strength, courage, and resilience in Biblical truths.

Studying the Bible helps our students learn important life lessons

From an early age, children can learn so much from the Bible. Our preschoolers and kindergarteners learn weekly memory verses to help reinforce those truths and build a solid foundation in faith. Our elementary and middle school students participate in service projects that help them explore the Word of God in action. And, our high school students learn how to become stewards of God’s Word and be strong in Christ.

Students draw strength from God’s Word and learn how to cope with doubt and anxiety

Rather than shelter our students from the real world, we guide them in fostering a strong faith and relationship with Christ that will serve them well as they face future challenges or adversities. In God’s Word, we find our hope and strength and answers to our greatest questions. Studying the Bible helps our students better understand the world around them and prepares them for life after graduation.

Students learn how to research and navigate a complex text

The Bible is a rich and intricate text that takes time and practice to navigate, read, and understand. As our students develop their language and comprehension skills, as well as expand their knowledge and critical thinking, the Bible is an excellent subject for study and exploration.

We invite you to learn more about our school, how we incorporate the Bible into our academic mission, and the difference of a private Christian education for your child. Please reach out to our admissions team at any time with questions or to schedule a visit.
