In a Principle Approach environment, students learn through a method of scholarship that teaches them to think and reason from biblical principles. Students learn to develop the skill and habit of reflective thinking and deductive reasoning derived from Scripture. This technique develops a skill, a habit, a way of thinking, and, ultimately, shapes the worldview of the student. This process lays the truth of God’s Word at the center of learning, which helps teach students how to think—not what to think—while it illuminates the understanding and consecrates the mind.
Each classroom brings the fundamentals of the Principle Approach into every aspect of learning. In Kindergarten, the Principles are introduced as the basis of all decisions and actions. Over the course of a student's learning experience, these Principles will be clearly demonstrated in critical thinking, problem solving, and leadership capacities.
