Overview

Overview

Kalamazoo Christian Elementary School says

The Kalamazoo Christian Schools, in partnership with Christian families and churches, prepare students to serve God responsibly in His world, by equipping them with knowledge, skills, and a biblical vision for life, for the advancement of His kingdom. West Christian Elementary is established and operated by Christian families in obedience to God's command to "nurture your children in the ways of the Lord." We believe God instituted the family giving parents primary decision making and responsibility for a child's instruction so that His promise of redemption would be passed throughout the generations. Our educational aim is to place God at the center of all that we do and teach. The whole child is educated to be Christian in all the God-created aspects of his/her life; spiritual, mental, physical, social, and emotional. As a child learns each must come to know, to enjoy, and to serve God according to his/her God-given abilities. Each child is guided to explore all of the various dimensions of God's creation from a Christian perspective. It is this all-encompassing Christian perspective - or 'world and life view' - that West Christian seeks to create and nurture. Though the historic roots of Kalamazoo Christian Schools lie with the Reformed and Christian Reformed churches in the area, today the Kalamazoo Christian Schools serve a wide spectrum of Christian churches with well over one hundred congregations represented.
