The Indian Rocks Christian School Vision
The founding philosophy of Indian Rocks Christian School was centered on the saving work of Christ and the idea that Indian Rocks Christian would provide a comprehensive, quality education to Pinellas County families who desired such for their children.
Accomplishing a mission which contains a seeming contradiction (Accessibility and Quality) is not an easy task. Providing a comprhensive, quality education comes at a great cost. The facilities, equipment, and personnel at Indian Rocks Christian reflect an environment of a school that should have a much higher tuition. However, higher tuition levels could limit the part of our philosophy that demands an education at Indian Rocks Christian be accessible to the families of Pinellas County.
The solution comes from God's provision, a partnership with a healthy local church, dedicated staff, and a community of parents and partners who see the benefits of supporting a local school.
What Do We Stand For?
Isaiah 40:31 states, "but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint " (ESV). This is the verse chosen to be the school verse for Indian Rocks Christian School. It encapsulates what we are trying to achieve through the school ministry. It is our desire that the successful student who graduates from Indian Rocks Christian will know Christ as his/her personal Savior, and will understand what it means to serve Christ in an ongoing/growing relationship. Bolstered by a foundation in Christ, the student will be able to soar to their potential in Christ. This means relying on Christ to meet the everyday challenges of life and to never give up.
