Means of Grace

In a Christian school, learning is not an end in itself.  Instead, the classical Christian teacher asks God to use his or her teaching, dispositions, and actions as an instrument in His hand to cultivate the students’ souls toward holiness.  In this sense, learning can be a means of grace.

This is a far cry from contemporary education, which all too often is idolized as a messiah.
