Educating a student to live and work in the 21st century and beyond is no longer just about reading, writing, and arithmetic. Students need to learn to problem solve, think critically and creatively, and communicate their ideas to others. This approach to learning encompasses Lititz Area Mennonite School’s mission of educating to meet the needs of the whole child.
Educating the whole child means we are not only stretching students’ minds, but we are teaming with home and church to guide their spirits and grow their bodies in as many areas as we can. First Thessalonians 4:23-24 as well as Hebrews 4:12 are both examples of how God has created us with mind, body, and spirit. This can be seen in many ways throughout the school.
Teachers use a variety of teaching methods that allow students to grow in their areas of strength and stretch them to try new things. These various activities help the students develop their strengths, grow in their weaknesses, and most importantly nurture mind, body, and spirit.
The Bible puts it this way: What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul? Character is important. The success you desire for your children has faith and spiritual growth at the core.
LAMS regards the spiritual life of each student as critically important. Through Bible instruction, Christian discipline, chapel services and a moment-by-moment integration of faith and learning, students are taught what it means to live a life of obedience to Jesus Christ. Biblical principles and conformity to Christ’s teaching form the standard for all school experiences.
