At Cole Valley Christian Schools we desire to help kids be real about their faith and help them toward an authentic relationship with God, even when that means asking hard questions and being brutally honest. We want to teach them how to build a foundation on His Word, the Bible. Therefore, we infuse scripture into every subject - not just Bible class - and we give our students opportunities to connect with God outside of daily classwork. Spiritual growth also happens through interactions in community with people doing life together.
- Lessons infused with scripture - all subjects
- Weekly Chapel
- Advisory Groups (grades 7-12)
- Bible Classes
Chapel is a weekly occurrence on both campuses. At our Secondary Campus, our chapel service is on Thursdays. High School and Jr High chapels meet separately except on occasion when they will meet together for a special speaker or topic. High School Chapel can be watched on Facebook live. Chapel is held on Friday mornings at our Elementary Campus and parents are welcome to attend. Both campuses have opportunities for students to be involved in leading worship and playing instruments.
Following Chapel each week students in grades 7-12 meet in Advisory Groups with an adult and 8-12 same gender classmates. This gives them an opportunity to be known, to discuss topics further, and to learn and pray together.
Bible is also a separate subject for all of our students. In grades 7-9, students will walk through an Old Testament Survey, a New Testament Survey and Foundations of Faith. Students in grades 10-12 have the opportunity to select semester long Bible classes from topics such as: Biblical Leadership; Biblical Relationships; Biblical View of Law; Church History; Comparative Religions; Ethics; Fundamentals of Faith; Global Outreach; Life of Christ; Ministry Development; Missions; various books of the Bible.
Teaching students to pray is done through modeling by our teachers - and then giving students an opportunity to pray in class. Our teachers value opportunities to pray for and with their students. And many have led students into a personal relationship with Christ as a result. But they also realize that great growth can come from walking with students in difficult seasons as well and so they desire to shepherd students through those moments or seasons.
