Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and diligence.
We focus on the Intellect and Intelligence of each Child
The common standard of education focuses on the strength of an academic program. To be academic according to Webster's 1828 means, "One who belonged to the school or adhered to the philosophy of Socrates and Plato." As a Christian parent, is this what you are seeking for you child(ren)? First off, this word limits a pupil to a school setting alone. Secondly, it requires an adherence to the worldly philosophy of Socrates and Plato.
We find the words intellectual and intelligent to better describe a Biblical education. Both of these words refer to the power of understanding and reason. These are faculties of the mind that God blesses mankind with to have an understanding of His Word for life application. These words do not limit a student but instead, separates out learning from a worldly philosophy for learning through Biblical reasoning.
"The mind of the intelligent and discerning seeks knowledge and eagerly inquires after it, But the mouth of the [stubborn] fool feeds on foolishness" (Proverbs 15:14).
It is through the power and liberty of the Holy Spirit that each child can reason and understand what they are learning. It no longer is a mechanical duty to adhere to a vain philosophy only in a school setting. All children have intellectual and intelligent potential in the light of these definitions!
