Our ESLRs are designed to apply
to every area of a student’s life, including but not limited to spiritual
growth, academics, relationships, and physical health. We do not believe an
individual can focus on one area to the exclusion of others. Jesus himself
referred to “heart, soul, mind & strength.” Our ESLRs demonstrate our
commitment to growth in all of these areas.
E: Evangelistic Believers. Not only do we work with families to reach and train up each child in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we work to disciple them into young believers who can articulate, defend, and lovingly share their faith with others in a confused and sinful world. We model, instill, and overtly instruct the Christian character and morality that is fitting for an ambassador of Christ, deeply inculcating a biblical worldview across all disciplines, content, and programs.
A: Agile Learners. With the goal of
developing life-long learners who can adapt in a fast-changing environment,
students will be inspired and challenged to intrinsically desire their growth,
and progressively become more self-directed in the learning process, from
developing and defining the problems to sharing solutions. Students will also
gain a firm grasp of any necessary resources, skills, and tools that would enable
them to thrive in the 21st century.
G: Graceful Communicators. We work with
students to build the most solid foundation in language skills as possible,
enabling them to both perceive and project critical ideas and messages in a
world of information and media saturation. Students are led to understand the
significance and power in their expression, including digital and virtual
venues. They will be taught the need for God’s grace and wisdom, as well as obedience to
the Holy Spirit, in all forms of communication.
L: Leading Thinkers. Our program is designed to continually introduce students to situations and assignments that call for a wide variety of critical thinking skills. This includes their creativity and persistence as well as integrating and extending ideas across disciplines and contexts. While remaining faithful to a comprehensive reception of the truth, students will learn to critically evaluate and apply concepts in novel contexts, paving the way for new conclusions and insights.
E: Exemplary Members. MBCS helps to prepare students to fulfill whatever vocation God may call them to. This includes college, military service, trade professions, church ministry/missions, and more. Foundational principles such as obedience, love, duty, service, and leadership are woven into our program design to allow students to appreciate, and desire to emulate, the sacrifices entailed in healthy communal life in local, global, and digital contexts.
