Learning and Discipleship
In scripture, a disciple is described as someone who is learning. Discipleship and learning are based on heart attitude. As we are learning, we need to choose to stay open minded. At CCS, we exercise a variety of conceptual and emotional skills – suspending judgment, reflecting on our own thinking, resisting being defensive, actively seeking making connections and investigating our own beliefs. This is consistent with our emphasis on discipleship and developing a biblical world view.
Our teachers and staff believe in this form of education and know they are called to support student learning. They are also called to hold students accountable for progress during their course. All curriculum and extra-curricular activities are designed with this learning and discipleship concept in mind.
Thinking is essentially problem solving. It is what we do when we do not have the answer. Students who are not taught critical thinking are not effective learners. Problem solving also encourages self-motivation, which is essential to living a successful life in the world. Self-motivation is often missing from the modern classroom, and will prove detrimental as the student progresses into adulthood. We give opportunity self-motivation at all stages, which is encouraged and monitored by caring staff and teachers.
