At CCS, we establish the Bible as the foundation of truth (John 17:17) in developing a Christian worldview that will influence, impact, and be integrated into all academic areas, as well as the student’s personal life (Hebrews 4:12). The explanation and memorization of Scripture helps students grow in building a faith and trust in the Lord. Bible accounts and application stories challenge students to live a Godly life through the examples of Biblical characters. Prayer is an important part of Bible study. Through daily prayer, students are encouraged to develop and strengthen their own relationship with the Lord.
Although formal assessment is not administered for previous instruction from one grade level to another, the scope and sequence within the curriculum itself is designed to prepare students to know and apply the Word of God. Assessments are gathered through oral discussions, questions and answers, written practice, and tests, as well as through student presentations, journaling, storytelling, drama, drills, and games.
Higher order thinking skills are developed in Bible through discussion, drama, and roleplay. Students are challenged to judge between good and evil and right and wrong. Discussions include comparing and contrasting ideas and thoughts, determining cause and effect, and making evaluations. Journaling provides a means of reflection, expression, and application of each student’s understanding of the character traits, as well as a venue to share what is learned in weekly chapel services.
