Our Philosophy of Christian Education

Milpitas Christian School is dedicated to a philosophy of education based on the word of God. The purpose of the school is to glorify God by partnering with parents to achieve academic excellence, spiritual maturity, and the emotional, physical, and social development of children.

Our Purpose

We desire to provide the best academic education using proven current and traditional teaching methods, tools, and technologies. Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEAM) are balanced with exposure to music, drama, art, physical and outdoor education.

Our students receive a Christian worldview in all subjects to maximize their God-given potential and to appreciate the beauty in His creation. We seek to bring students to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to disciple them in Biblical truth and to apply it in their daily lives. Christian character development is a prime goal at Milpitas Christian School. Using Biblical guidelines, we strive to provide the foundation of a strong Christian character leading to self-discipline.
