Our Mission Statement
Rehoboth Christian School challenges its students to know the Triune God and equips them to love, serve and transform the world in His name.
Rehoboth Christian School seeks to provide a strong academic, liberal arts education from the perspective of a Reformed world view for students from diverse socio-economic, ethnic and academic backgrounds. We pledge fidelity to Jesus Christ, offering our hearts and lives to do God’s work in God’s world.
Vigorously Academic, Beautifully Diverse, Thoroughly Christian
Core Values/Shared Commitments:
Rehoboth Christian School claims the following core values and shared commitments. We believe that these commitments make our school distinctive in the past and in the present. And we collectively pledge to insure that Rehoboth will always retain these values and this identity:
We are claiming to be vigorously academic. Our intent is to take each student and challenge and equip them with discipline and experience. We do not define ourselves as a prep school that admits only students of high academic achievement. Rather, we admit students we believe we can serve well and who, with their parents, are willing to covenant with us to give solid and consistent effort toward academic achievement.
We intend to be beautifully diverse, serving primarily the Native American community, but not exclusively. We understand the enormous privilege it is to have a student body of mixed ethnicity. Each ethnic group brings wonderful patterns and values to the whole, enabling students not only to learn how other groups function, but further to learn to cherish the experience, opportunity, and friendship that often results. Further, diversity shows itself in more ways than ethnicity. At Rehoboth there is also significant economic, academic, and denominational diversity, which we believe contributes to the richness of a Rehoboth education.
Rehoboth strives to be "thoroughly Christian." The range and scope of Christ's claim is over the whole educational enterprise. If Christ is Lord of all of life, if our whole world belongs to God, then there is not one small part of our task that is outside of God's care and concern. We endeavor to emphasize and enact in both form and substance a comprehensive, holistic, thoroughly Biblical educational program.
Rehoboth values community. We are committed to keeping RCS a comparatively small school that provides a safe environment for all who are present. We value the participation of parents and families in the life of the school. Our students will receive individual attention from caring adults who will teach, tutor, mentor and pray for their growth and maturity. Too, our staff will practice Christian community in their professional and personal lives.
Rehoboth Christian School is committed to respecting Native culture and language. While all cultural patterns throughout time and history need to be evaluated by Biblical standards and transformed accordingly, we honor those aspects of Native culture that enrich and model Christian living and desire to be a school that is sensitive to the cultural context in which we live.
