School Philosophy

St. Matthew’s offers a full academic curriculum. All subjects are taught in accordance with the full conviction that the Bible is God’s true Word and the final authority for all matters that pertain to Christian teaching, faith, and life.

The school’s philosophy is firmly centered on two central teachings of the Bible: the Law, which shows us our sin, and the Gospel that shows us our Savior. The Holy Spirit works through the Law to bring us to a knowledge of our sins and the need for a Savior. The Holy Spirit works through the Gospel to create and sustain saving faith in the Savior that God sent: Jesus Christ.

Through faith in the Gospel, the students of St. Matthew’s are motivated to express their love for Jesus in their worship life, through their daily conduct and in response to the Savior’s commission to “preach the Gospel to every creature,” and lead others to a saving faith in Christ.
