Vision of ALCS

Scripture teaches that the source of all knowledge, wisdom and truth is GOD. Our vision is to impact our young people through Christian education.

God created each of us out of love and with a purpose. Today more than ever, our youth need to feel special, competent, and worthwhile throughout daily interactions within school and with those in the world around them. It is our goal to make each individual student strive toward his or her God-given potential so that they may go out and reach the world for their Savior, Jesus Christ.

Our mission: To raise up this generation to be fully equipped with the message of the Gospel so our students can reach their world for Christ. To prepare them with continued dedication, devotion, and commitment to the Lord. To embrace their future by giving them a firm foundation on which they will be able to build their lives with the clear message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ within their hearts so that they can engage the culture, change the moral landscape of our society, become Kingdom shakers, history makers, and world changers for Jesus Christ.

We, at Abundant Life Christian School, believe that God has entrusted us with the great responsibility of guiding young people as they continue to grow spiritually, academically, mentally, emotionally, socially and physically. A student’s well-being is dependent upon the care and support they receive both at home and at school. We seek to work together with parents in order to provide an educational experience for the students to develop as whole individuals.

We strive to achieve academic excellence as we meet the developmental and educational needs of each student. This process can be achieved as students interact with a curriculum that is developmentally appropriate based on each student’s individual performance level and enriched by a Christ-centered approach. We are committed to providing a Christian educational experience of the highest quality to the students in our school at Abundant Life Christian School.
