A message from the principal
Blake with Central Valley Christian Schools
Central Valley Christian Middle School is a place of community. We work together. We value others. We encourage one another. Simply, we do life together. And it’s a place of learning. We study all aspects of the gift of creation that God has blessed us with and endeavor to discover how we might redeem those fallen parts and try to put them back together, in a way that echoes Eden’s original beauty.
At the middle school we’re blessed to have a dynamic team of educators who love Christ and excel at sharing the wonders of His world with adolescents. From the intricacies of a single human cell to the complexity of an algebraic function, from the richness and depth of the Old Testament narrative to the wonder of literary creativity woven through classic adolescent novels, these teachers strive to unveil the beauty of creation to these precious middle school students and perhaps teach them a little bit about what it means to live in community together.
Unfortunately, living in community together is a goal that’s sometimes made elusive in the world’s shadows. Our school theme this year is “Be the Light,” based on the Apostle Paul’s instruction to the church at Ephesus to “live as children of light.” It’s a pretty good recipe for these middle school children who live a world that tries to swallow them with darkness: Live as light. Reflect the light of the God of light. As we do life together this year, we’ll strive to live in the light of the Lord.
As folks who teach the wonder that is the modern adolescent, we know the meaning of change and gradual growth. To train servants of the King, we partner with parents who love Jesus and we cling to the words of the apostle Paul: “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Grace and Peace,
