The Vision of Linfield Christian School is to be the standard of excellence in Christ-centered, college preparatory education.
Mission and Purpose
Linfield Christian School is an independent college preparatory school that exists to challenge boys and girls and young men and women —
To know Jesus Christ as Lord
To love others as themselves
To grow in knowledge and skill
— in order that they may serve the Lord and the world through their character and leadership.
Linfield offers a rigorous academic college-preparatory program rooted in and shaped by a Christian perspective. The curriculum at the high school adheres to the entrance requirements of the University of California. In addition to college preparation, studies in the Middle and High Schools encourage students in the areas of skill and character development, as well as moral judgment that will increase their potential for success in the business and professional world. Bible classes are an integral part of the academic program offered by Linfield; attendance at chapel services is required.
The curriculum at the Middle School includes: Bible, literature/language, mathematics, physical education, science, history and geography. Electives are offered in Associated Student Body, drama, yearbook, speech/photo journalism, beginning Spanish, Critical Thinking Lab, academic enrichment, American Sign Language, and mathematics tutorials.
The excellent academic program at the Elementary School provides a foundation for lifelong learning in a nurturing environment. A strong academic curriculum is offered in the core subjects: reading, mathematics, science, and history. Bible, Spanish, art appreciation, performing arts, technology and physical education serve to build a well-rounded program. Educational field trips and assemblies, reading incentive programs, band, honor choir, chess club, and sports camps offer enrichment opportunities.
