Teacher Application Background Information

“Teachers in the schools of the Eastern Christian School Association recognize that their calling to the profession is based upon our commitment to God as Creator and Lord and to His Word as the standard for faith and living. They recognize that while the parents of students are primarily responsible before God for the instruction of covenant youth, the Christian school is the medium which parents have chosen to enlist partnership in fulfilling this responsibility. Faculty recognizes the Board of Eastern Christian School Association as the governing authority delegated by the parents to see that the schools are administered well.

Within this framework Christian educators affirm their belief in the worth and dignity of man as a being created in the image of God and recognize their obligation to pursue the truth, to encourage scholarship and to promote meaningful Christian citizenship in our democracy. Christian educators regard as essential to these goals the protection of the freedom to learn and to teach and the guarantee of educational opportunities for all.

They also acknowledge their responsibility to practice their profession according to the ethical standards as revealed in the Word of God and expressed in the basic Reformed principles (outlined below) to which our Christian school community subscribes. “ (excerpt from ECSA Application Information document)
