Institutional Goals for CISP

 

In addition to the outcomes expected in teaching, guiding and forming the CISP learner, CISP endeavors to:

  • provide an education that is Christ-centered, displaying an understanding of how the Christian worldview applies to all areas of knowledge;
  • demonstrate what a community of grace looks like by treating the students and each other with the same gentleness and compassion which God uses in dealing with us;
  • provide a relationally nurturing community space, where children feel accepted and encouraged to find and strengthen their gifts, and further develop weak areas;
  • provide a launching pad for students to be more involved in their communities in healing and creative ways;
  • provide the above at a price that is as affordable as possible to all sectors of the Czech and expat communities, and in so doing, provide a Christian service to our host culture, seeking outside sponsorship to help make available the possibility of a Christian education to those who could not otherwise afford to send their children to CISP;
  • provide assistance to the home-schooling community within the Czech Republic;
  • expose families to biblical literacy and issues of faith;
  • become and remain a fully recognized member of the Czech educational system as an English-language, faith-based international school;
  • become and remain fully accredited by the appropriate accrediting agency (ACSI);
  • become independent with respect to facilities by purchasing our own building(s) when it becomes fiscally possible and responsible to do so.
