The Rhema Difference

Community

The society is made up of members, both parents and non-parents, who take final responsibility for the education of the children at Rhema. This community is a supportive one caring for the needs of all involved. The larger Christian community forms a support base for the school–financially, prayerfully, and physically.

Curriculum

The curriculum meets all Ministry requirements while also fulfilling the norms of scriptures. It is sufficiently diverse to meet the needs of all students and the goals are rooted in biblical principles.

Discipline

Christian freedom combined with the call to obedience translate into a code of responsibility. The teachers and the pupils bear the responsibility of living together in a Christian manner. The atmosphere of the school is one of joy, love, and security as a result of mutual respect and a common bond in Christ.

Family

The family has primary responsibility for the education of their children.  Home and school must work together so that the children will be nurtured in the Christian faith. Close cooperation between home and school is integral to the success of the school.

Prayer

Daily prayer is essential to the existence of the school. The community prays daily for the school. Teachers meet regularly for devotional times. Classroom prayer begins and ends the day and is interspersed throughout the day. Individual situations are dealt with prayerfully.

Staff

The staff is made up of qualified Christian professionals. All staff seek to be Christian role models and work together in harmony. Teachers, support and administrative staff are regarded as equal partners in the task of Christian education.

Students

Each child is valued as one of God’s children and His special creation made in His image. Each student is taught to develop all talents to the glory of God. Each child is regularly encouraged to commit their lives to Christ and to deepen this relationship with Him.
