    *BWI definition and application adapted from Roger Erdvig in Beyond Biblical Integration (Summit Ministries, 2020), pp. 10, 28

    Excellence in the CCS 4 Pillars
    • Creating an environment in which people are known and valued, have a sense of belonging, and function from a position of common purpose and interdependence 
    • Creating a culture in which everyone is treated with love and respect, and accepts each individual as uniquely created in the image of God 
    • Emphasizing the importance of unity within community 


    Educational Philosophy

    The educational philosophy of Cascade Christian Schools at all educational levels has its foundation in a God-centered view of truth as presented in the Bible. The integrating center for the educational experiences of a student is found in the person of Jesus Christ and in His written Word—the Bible (Proverbs 22:6, Deuteronomy 6:1-6, Matthew 28:19, Luke 2:52).

    Recognizing the pressures upon a young person today, Cascade Christian Schools offers an environment that promotes and teaches spiritual principles of living and that encourages human relations within the context of biblical imperatives (2 Timothy 3:15-17). Cascade Christian’s curriculum arises from a philosophy that places God, not man, in the center of all things (Colossians 2:3, Proverbs 1:7, Colossians 1:17). Emanating from this philosophy is the challenge to students to use every talent vigorously, “as unto the Lord” (Colossians 3:23). Students should be prepared to meet life’s intellectual and philosophical challenges with a well-reasoned faith (2 Timothy 2:15, 1 Peter 3:15, Colossians 2:8, 2 Corinthians 10:5).

    At Cascade Christian Schools, we desire that our entire organization be aligned to our Guiding Principles, including our educational process. We are committed to educating the whole child, in all areas of their lives as students begin to understand and apply who God designed them to be and how to effectively impact their world. We purposefully work with all students in four key areas:

    • Academic Excellence
    • Leadership Development
    • Personal Character Development: Respect, Responsibility, Relationship
    • Spiritual Formation

    We refer to these areas as the CCS 4 Pillars and have developed Expected Student Outcomes in each area. It is our desire that students who graduate from Cascade Christian Schools be able to apply these skills for the next part of their journey in college and career.
