It has always been God's plan for parents to take the primary responsibility for educating and training their children. (Deuteronomy 6:6-9; Ephesians 6:4). Eagle River Christian School serves as an extension of the home by assisting parents with the moral and spiritual training of their children. It also provides technical and academic assistance to help children master
academic skills and concepts.
It is our goal to guide and establish learning experiences that will assist each student in becoming a mature Christian, and a responsible, productive member of society. It is essential that our school families and school staff work together to impart knowledge, understanding, wisdom, and a God-centered view of life to our students.
We believe that attending Eagle River Christian School is a privilege. The purpose of our school is not to reform but to train Christian youth, of every ability, in the highest principle of Christian leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship Philosophy of Education Our school's premise is that true education comes from God. This premise is based on the fact that only Christian education deals with all the dimensions of life viewed from a Biblical perspective. True education does not just present data, but relates everything to God's plan for mankind.
In order for an educational program to be academically sound and instructionally effective, it must be founded upon Christian educational principles that recognize the true nature of God, of truth, of knowledge, and of man. Implicit in Christian education are these basic truths:
Man does possess a spiritual dimension. (Genesis 1:27)
Education involves the total being - spiritually, intellectually,
physically and socially. (Proverbs 9:9)
Each person possesses unique, individual potential, traits andneeds.
The educational experience must involve the development of
Christian beliefs, attitudes, and skills.
Eagle River Christian School is a multi-denominational, Biblically-based school which partners with Christian families to develop a Christian world view, promote academic excellence, and prepare children for a lifetime of service to Jesus Christ. Our Motto is "Reaching Others through Education".
We offer classroom taught A Beka courses in conjunction with ACSI and BJU curriculum.
Consisting of grades KR3 through 12th, our programs are designed to include academics, athletics, music, foreign languages and college preparatory programming.
We are known as the Soaring Eagles and our school song is "Soar" by Meredith Andrews.
"Here I remind myself what you said over me. Here I remind my soul who you are.
You said you won't relent, won't let go, won't forget every promise you have whispered to my heart.
As I wait, as I wait on You.
I'm gonna run and not grow weary.
I'm gonna walk and not grow faint.
Rise up on wings like eagles to soar.
I know in everything You're with me. I
know You're working as I wait.
Lift me up on wings like eagles to soar.
This desert holds a song I will sing on and on.
You're a river when the ground I walk is dry.
You will set the crooked straight, clear my path, make a way.
You will lead me from the valley to the heights.
As I wait, as I wait on You Creator, keeper, life breather.
Your name is greater than anything I face.
Sustainer, savior, stronghold breaker.
Your name is greater than anything I
face. As I wait, as I wait on You. I will wait, I will wait on You."
Our school scripture is Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will
run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
