Staff Core Values
CP will model classroom instruction after the example of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has taught with the authority of ultimate truth. Biblical truths will permeate the classroom through the instructional process and program.
Recognizing the example of excellence in the life of Christ, the staff should strive for excellence in all areas of their professional life.
The student-teacher relationship encompasses modeling Christ-like behavior and discipleship just as Paul demonstrated in his relationship to Timothy.
CP recognizes the parent-teacher relationship as the interaction between the leaders of the home and the leaders of the classroom. We recognize the parent as the primary educator and will focus our goals and methods to help parents understand and fulfill their God-given responsibilities to Biblically educate their student.
Faculty members will model Christ in their personal lives. They will teach with their actions as well as their words.
