The purpose of Christian Outreach School is to provide a Christ-centered
environment for the pursuit of excellence in education, discipling each
student to conform to the image of Jesus Christ, and to make Jesus Lord
in every life situation.
In order to accomplish this as we serve Christian families in the greater
Jefferson County area through our program for children and youth (K- 12),
without discrimination on the basis of race, gender, national and ethic
origin, or physical disability, COS submits that it must provide an education
Our goal, by the grace of God, is to lead each student to a personal commitment
to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and to encourage each student to maximize
his God-given potential by pursuing excellence in spiritual growth, academics,
athletics and physical fitness, fine arts, and vocational arts toward fruitful
service to his community, his nation, the church, and Kingdom work world
wide (Eph. 2:8-10).
In accordance with the sixty-six books
of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, the very Word of God, inspired,
inerrant, and infallible;
An extension of the home submitting
to the authority of the Christian Outreach Church leadership who, together
with the parents, is accountable to God for the fulfillment of His injunction
to bring up our children "in the nurture (training) and admonition (discipline/instruction)
of the Lord" (Eph. 6:4). Additionally, its commission is to equip
parents to achieve God's order for the family.
At Christian Outreach School (COS) we believe that we are an extension
of the Christian home, providing nurturing, training and discipling in
the Word of God for each child that participates in our academic programs.
The church, Christian school and the home provide the basis for the physical,
academic and spiritual development of the child. Our collective goal
is that once the student has completed his or her educational years at
COS that they be ready to make a positive contribution to society and be
effective "...witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and
to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8b, NIV)
In Proverbs 22:6, we are called to "Train up a child in the way he
should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Our ultimate
goal in providing Christian education is that each child discover God's
perfect plan and purpose for their life.
The Word of God will be our standard in developing Godly character and
instilling Biblical principles throughout all of our core educational programs.
Outreach School provides a Christ-centered environment for the pursuit
excellence in education. Students from K-4 (pre-school) through senior
high school are discipled to conform to the image of Jesus Christ, and
to make Jesus Lord in every life situation.
