Greetings From the Principal’s Desk

Greetings From the Principal’s Desk

I cannot begin to impart to you, in words, how exciting the beginning of the MLCA school year has been! As with every year, school faculty and staff vote on a yearly Bible verse. The verse serves as our school theme and so much of what we do revolves around this Bible passage. This year’s verse is Joshua 1:9:

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

 I cannot think of a better message to instill in the hearts and minds of our precious students. It is a blessing to work in a school where the very methodology, our educational philosophy, arms every child that roams our halls with the armor of God. Our students are reminded DAILY that God is with them. We are blessed to be in partnership with our families, working hand-in-hand to educate their young minds and spread the Gospel. MLCA is building a strong foundation in each child. We are unapologetically Lutheran and decidedly Classical. We have adopted the term “delightfully rigorous”, which communicates to the world our desire to teach in a developmentally appropriate way that capitalizes on the way that God designed us. Our aim is to instill in young minds a love of learning that continues well after the school day is done.

At MLCA, we seek to build character, not self-esteem. We teach students to think, in a world of chaos and uncertainty. The Classical Method teaches young minds to look at all of the facts and discern, reason it out, ask questions, and form their own opinion. We are not isolating the students: protecting them from the worldly wishy-wash, or building a moat around them. We are inoculating them with logic, reason and Godly wisdom. As Frederick Douglass once said, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” An education at Messiah Lutheran Classical Academy builds a strong foundation on which a child’s life can be built. WHAT A LEGACY!
