Overview of the ministry of TAPS Christian Academy

The ministry of TAPS Christian Academy exists to assist parents (Deuteronomy 6 and Psalm 78) in training up their children in a distinctively Christian educational environment. We are committed to do so by providing a caring, devoted, staff who are devoted to the purpose of training children in Godly character and discipline, employing such curriculum and instructional materials that accomplish that goal. TAPS Christian Academy exists to serve you and your family. TAPS Christian Academy is dedicated to helping each child discover and develop his or her full potential in Christ through Biblical training, academic mastery, spiritual growth, and physical development. Through training and developing a Biblical Worldview in each of our students, we endeavor to train a generation to change their world by building a legacy of leaders for Christ (Proverbs 22:6; 2 Timothy 3:16).

TAPS Christian Academy is a hybrid school combining the best attributes of traditional homeschool, co-op, private school and university. In everything we do, Christ is our center.  We hold steadfast to a Christian Worldview as laid out in the scriptures of the Holy Bible.

TAPS is committed to…

FIRST and foremost to the spiritual growth and development of students

Second, academic excellence; Striving for academic excellence without God leads to a twisted and warped mind. Romans 1:21-22   21. Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God. Neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart became darkened.  22. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

Philosophy of Christian Education

It is the conviction of TAPS Christian Academy that children should be “trained up in the way that they should go” (Proverbs 22:6). Further, we hold that God entrusted parents and churches with the critical responsibility of providing biblical instruction for the next generation. The role of the Christian school is to join parents and churches by creating an academic environment that addresses the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development of the child. Education at TAPS Christian Academy is approached from a Biblical perspective that recognizes the sovereignty and authority of God. Biblical education focuses on what a person becomes rather than on what he knows. Therefore, knowledge ought to be primarily pursued as the basis for the development of wisdom and character. Further, the end of education is not the acquisition of status, but to glorify God and fulfill His mandate to subdue and have dominion over God’s creation. Education is the prerogative and responsibility of parents. The Christian school is in partnership with both the home and church to provide support and assistance in shaping a Christ-like view of truth and reality.  In order to accomplish that goal, TAPS Christian Academy embraces the following educational components:

  1. God is the author of all truth and has revealed Himself through His Word, the Bible. Thus, the Scriptures provide the foundation for all knowledge and living. We affirm that God’s truth is Universal in scope and that truth may not be divided into secular and sacred arenas. TAPS Believes that only when biblical truth is consistently applied and naturally integrated into the Curriculum, will students have a true understanding of themselves and the created world around them. TAPS helps students make sense of the universe and their place in it by filtering their learning through the truth contained in God’s word.
  1. Each student is a unique creation of God and possesses intrinsic value. A Christian education shall lead the student to become productive, Christ-honoring citizens who seek to advance the Gospel of Christ to all people.
  1. TAPS Christian Academy is a partner with parents and churches in the education of the student. As such, the school functions in cooperation with the parents to nurture the development of the child. The school desires to instill a sense of honor for the home and church in the student.
  1. As stewards of the truth of God, a Christian school education shall epitomize honest investigation in all disciplines from a biblical worldview, excellence in instruction at every grade, hard work, critical thinking, and the highest integrity in our personal lives and corporate operations for the glory of God.
  1. Teachers serve as models of morality and a Christian lifestyle. As such, they will seek to incorporate biblical truth and prayer into daily instruction. Jesus instructed his disciples “to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength” (Matthew 22:37).

Note: In all instances, the word “parent” is the equivalent to “legal guardian” when applicable.
