At Westlake, we tell our students each day that Jesus is their personal Savior who died on the cross to save them from their sins. The faculty and staff model this faith throughout the day and show how God can be found in all areas of study. The students hear bible stories, learn memory verses, and actively pray with one another. Our goal is for our students to become disciples who are able to share their faith with those around them.
In Preschool (3's and 4's), students learn that Jesus loves them and is their friend. Teachers present age-appropriate Bible stories to help the children understand God's love and faithfulness.
In Lower School (Kindergarten-5th grade), students continue to develop their relationship with Christ by studying Old and New Testament Bible stories and memorizing scripture. Students gain more in depth knowledge as they help their class prepare to lead chapel services. They also study the Law and Gospel; confession and repentance; and forgiveness and grace.
In Middle School (6th - 8th grade), students begin experiencing emotional, physical and spiritual changes. We strive to make these, often challenging years easier to navigate with a strong faith and understanding of the Gospel.
Every day, God gives us the opportunity to live, to learn and to love. He challenges those of us who follow Christ to do that by developing a Biblical worldview and to put our faith into action. These statements act as a template through which we strive to become all that God calls us to be.
