The mission of Taylor Mill Christian Academy is to provide a well-balanced spiritual, academic, social and physical education in a Christ-centered environment. Focusing on the individual needs of the child, our school provides students with an atmosphere that nurtures both personal growth and Christian service.
Seventh-day Adventist education is dedicated to the fulfillment of one great purpose in cooperation with divine agencies:
"To restore in man the image of his Maker, to bring him back to the perfection in which he was created, to promote the development of body, mind, soul, that the divine purpose of his creation might be realized." Education, pp. 15, 16
In the beginning, man was created in the image of God and was "Endowed with a power akin to that of the Creator-individuality, power to think and to do." Ibid. p. 17
The human capacity for free, creative, responsible thinking and acting has been considerably diminished by sin. It is therefore, the purpose of Christian education to restore this power in each student. Knowledge of God, His plan for our redemption, and the kind of persons boys and girls may become as they are restored to His likeness is of first importance throughout the total school experience. Such a transforming restoration is envisioned by the Bible and provided for by the Holy Spirit. It involves the development of the whole person; physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually.
Seventh-day Adventist education places a high estimate on the infinite worth of every individual and seeks to provide a climate in which wholesome self-worth may be developed. The necessity of providing opportunities for students to secure a preparation that will fit them to live successfully and productively is recognized. Students are encouraged to take an active interest in making the community a better place to live, to appreciate the cultural and scientific advances of the age, and to develop a personal sense of mission for giving the gospel message to the entire world in preparation for the soon return of Jesus.
Seventh-day Adventist education seeks to give students an intelligent understanding of the principles governing the functions and proper care of the body and to help them establish habits and practices that foster physical vitality and health.
Seventh-day Adventist education seeks to acquaint students with great literature, art, and music, and to develop appreciation for
"Whatever is true, whatever is noble whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, and whatever is admirable." Philippians 4:8, NIV
Seventh-day Adventist education is dedicated to teaching the student to think and to do, to be honest, courteous, obedient, respectful of others, and industrious; to be aware of the student's responsibility to God for preserving and developing the child's physical and mental health; to be discriminating in the use of leisure time and the choice of entertainment; and to create in the student an awareness of the times in which we live so that the student may be ready for our Lord's soon return.
The Taylor Mill Christian Academy operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
