Educational Philosophy


Teaching of Science, Social Studies,  Mathematics, Language Arts, Performing Arts, P.E. and Health classes are supported by Biblical principles from a Judeo-Christian worldview under the direction and leadership of the Keystone School Board and Administrator. Keystone Christian Academy uses a variety of  curricula—both secular and Christian—to provide a relevant and  challenging academic program to develop the mind and character of each student.
(II Timothy 3: 14- 16; I Peter 3: 15, 16; Philippians 1: 6, 9)

Keystone teachers educate with creativity in a flexible environment with attention to individualized needs. Relating to the students with respect, the teachers create a joyful learning environment and cultivate curiosity.


Parents are the principle trainers in the Character Development of their children, and all Keystone staff co-labor with parents in this endeavor. We believe that an authentic personal relationship with Jesus is critical to the development of their character and their future successes. Consequently, KCA staff members each model a growing relationship with the Lord and encourage that commitment in each  student.
(James 3:16-18; Proverbs 22:6; Deuteronomy 6: 6, 7; Ephesians 2:10)

Character Development includes recognizing the natural “bent” of a child (Proverbs 22:6) and shaping relational skills and processes compatible with that bent according to Scriptural principles. The motivations of a child influence his/her attitudes and behaviors. We purpose to guide students in a flexible way as they attempt to handle the effects of their own attitudes and behaviors as they relate to others.


Since the goal of Keystone Christian Academy is to partner with families to provide a Biblically-based education, it is essential that those families are integrated into a church body. In this way, KCA becomes a partner with the church in influencing transformation within their family. Keystone Christian Academy is a non-denominational school that functions based on the doctrines detailed in the Statement of Faith, while not emphasizing doctrine associated with specific denominations.

We seek to walk with the Lord and in unity with churches, parents, the staff, the school board, and Lifepoint Church, under whose roof we are currently housed. Partnership in unity directly impacts the environment of the school, the learning process, and student outcomes.
(Matthew 28: 19-20; Ephesians 2:21, 22)
