Ever since God made Adam and Eve in the Garden back in Genesis 1, God has called all human beings to community: but not just any community. As image bearers of the living God, God calls us to a mutual love and respect for one another and that it takes place within the diversity and expression of each of our unique personalities, skills, gifts, and talents. Education happens best within the context of healthy, vibrant, supportive and accountable relationships so the student can do more than just survive--but now--thrive. Hebrews 10:23-25 says "...let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good needs...encouraging one another as we see the Day approaching." Through classroom discussion, drama, music, service projects, athletics, retreats, leadership conferences, etc. the students learn about God, themselves, their obligation to others and ultimately God's kingdom vision for their lives from a diversity of opportunities afforded them here at Veritas Christian Academy.
