“Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.” — Philippians 2:3.
Jesus had a way with words. He listened carefully and spoke straight to the heart of people by his words and actions. Our desire is to teach our students this truth — that they love others through their words and actions just like Jesus did.
In Bible lessons, we teach them why we should love God above all else, and love others as we love ourselves. But what does that look like?
At The Master’s Academy, Jesus is the “why” and Responsive Classroom is the “how.” We can’t expect our kids to know how to do this unless we intentionally model and practice right behavior. By implementing “Morning Meeting”, proactive learning structures, and consistent logical consequences, students begin to understand why and how they should make good choices. They are given time to reflect on their choices and to consider what they could do better next time. Furthermore, when students understand how to communicate and act respectfully, learning reaches new depths and academics SOAR. We focus on building a community of learners who take ownership of their learning, who support others in their journey and work together toward God’s purposes.
