We are a Kingdom school.
Kingdom Education is the life-long, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading our children to Christ & building them up in Christ so that they are equipped to serve His kingdom.

Home | Church | School
Kingdom education takes place when educational principles that God has revealed in Scripture are consistently and holistically practiced in the central environments of a child’s life. The ecosystem of Kingdom education builds a solid foundation for the next generation because the same truths and values are taught in the home, church, and school.
Doing Our Part
At Northland Christian Schools, providing a Christian education means more to us than simply providing Bible courses. Northland Christian staff and faculty pursue a holistic integration of biblical Truths in every aspect of learning. We believe the Holy Spirit is moving in every lesson, every encounter, and every child. We walk with each student on their faith journey, recognizing that a relationship with Christ is the most important gift of education.
Together with parents and pastors, our goal is to disciple children in a
holistically biblical environment so that they may know and be known by God.
Principles of Kingdom Education
Taken from Dr. Glen Schultz’s book Kingdom Education: God’s Plan for Educating the Next Generation.
The education of children and youth is the primary responsibility of parents.
Deuteronomy 6:4 – 9; 11:18 – 21; Psalm 78:1 – 7; Psalm 127:3; Proverbs 22:6; Malachi 2:13 – 16; Ephesians 6:4
The education of children and youth is a 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week process that continues from birth till maturity.
Deuteronomy 6:7; 11:19; Proverbs 22:6
The education of children and youth must have as its primary goals the salvation of and discipleship of the next generation.
Psalm 78:6 – 7; Matthew 28:19 - 20
The education of children and youth must be based on God's Word as absolute truth.
Matthew 24:35; Psalm 119
The education of children and youth must hold Christ as preeminent in all of life.
Colossians 2:3; 6 - 10
The education of children and youth must not hinder the spiritual and moral development of the next generation.
Matthew 18:6; 19:13 – 14; Mark 10:13- 16; Luke 18:15 – 17
The education of children and youth, if and when delegated to others by parents, must be done by teachers chosen with the utmost care to ensure that they all follow these principles.
Exodus 18:21; 1 Samuel 1:27 – 28; 3:1 - 10
The education of children and youth results in the formation of a belief system or worldview that will be patterned after the belief systems or worldviews of the person's teachers.
The education of children and youth must lead to true wisdom by connecting all knowledge to a biblical worldview frame of reference.
Romans 1:20; Psalm 19:1; Proverbs 4:5, 7; 3:19; 9:10; Psalm 104:24; 136:5; Jeremiah 10:12; Romans 11:33; Luke 11:52; Colossians 2:3; 1 Corinthians 8:1; 13:8; Romans 1:2
The education of children and youth must have a view of the future that includes the eternal perspective.
Colossians 3:1 –2; Matthew 6:19 – 20; 2 Timothy 4:6 – 8; Acts 20:24; Hebrews 11:13; Colossians 3:23 - 24
