The Genesis Experience
At Genesis Academy believes that each child is made in the image of God, given special gifts by God and has a God-ordained purpose in life. The job of all staff and teachers is to seek and harness those special gifts. Thus, we are committed to academic excellence guided by Biblical truth. The school strives to meet these special needs in four primary areas: academic, physical, spiritual and social. The school attempts to develop an integrated academic environment wherein each student is challenged and effused with enthusiasm for learning. In the physical area, the school desires to develop in each student a healthy respect for his/her body and the importance of enjoying leisure and sports activities. Spiritually, the school will strive to help the student grow in his/her respect and love for God and for others and for the wisdom of God’s Word. Within a Christian worldview, our philosophy emphasizes developing a student who finds confidence in self and learns how he/she relates to authority, family and peers.
Genesis Academy’s Philosophy of Education is to see children oriented Biblically, motivated creatively and assisted practically to become the best they can be in every aspect of personality and area of performance in life.
The classical Greeks sought to focus on the development of a ‘sound mind in a sound body’ and the ancient Israelites emphasized the development of ‘a sound soul’. Similarly, combining these three strands of profound truth from the sages of the ages - ‘a sound body in a sound mind with a sound soul’ - Genesis Academy declares in summary the school’s Philosophy of Education to be: ‘Christ centered, Child centered, and Community centered’.
The Genesis Academy Vision begins with the understanding that each child made in the image of God, has been endowed by God with special gifts, and has a God-ordained purpose in life.
The Genesis Academy Vision is designed to ensure that each child is given focused attention and assistance to maximize potential for development, in every aspect of personality and in every area of life, regardless of any child’s race, color, ethnicity or any other restrictive or distinctive defining feature of humanity.
The Genesis Academy Vision is grounded in the concept that every child should be instructed and nurtured in an environment of learning that is physically safe, academically challenging, culturally enriching and socially enhancing.
The Genesis Academy Vision is committed to the proposition that learning must go beyond rote and rituals and stimulate in children the ability to think, reason, and express themselves with competence, clarity and creativity. Therefore, children must be exposed to learning experiences that will encourage them to pose questions, exercise sound judgment, develop skills of analysis and logic in the process of mastering time-tested truths and information, moving from strength to strength, and grade to higher grade with confidence and smooth transition.
