Forest Lake Christian School
Choosing the right school has become one of life’s most strategic decisions, because that institution can shape the values, philosophy and direction of a young person. It demands a quality choice. Education is not value neutral. Every institution will work to shape the worldview of an impressionable child. School is where we learn to think. School is where we learn to work with and relate to others and ultimately it helps determine what our impact will be upon this world. If that whole process includes God’s own viewpoint, then we provide our children with a truth laden education which they are able to apply to every aspect of life.
The mission of Forest Lake Christian School is to provide an education based upon the truth of God’s word so that students are able to discern right thinking and action from a Biblical world view and are thereby empowered for a life of enduring commitment to Christ, moral integrity, and intellectual growth. A team of dedicated and professionally trained teachers provide daily instrution from God’s word and provide a model of Christian excellence in and out of the classroom. We trust that this site will help you determine that Forest Lake Christian School offers the best perspective on the issues of moraliy, ethics and education.
Forest Lake Christian School was founded in 1966 as an independent, evangelical Christian day school. We are a charter member of ACSI and welcome students of any race, color, gender, and national or ethnic origin.
Forest Lake Christian School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), a member of the the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and is the longest running Christian school in the Northern California area.
Last week in chapel, our speaker, Pastor Chris Ritter of Harvest Ministries, shared a story of when he was in college at Point Loma Nazarene University. He described in detail the location of the college which is right on the bluffs of San Diego. Having visited Point Loma myself, the views are breath-taking. Pastor Chris went on to talk about the magnificent sunsets he experienced every day from his dorm room — sunsets with vivid colors of yellow, orange, pink, and purple, sometimes nestled in puffy white clouds. During his first months on campus, Pastor Chris was mesmerized by the evening sunsets until a few months later when he could not see them anymore. You see, the sunsets became “ordinary” to him. The colors were not brilliant, and the time of day just another hour on the clock. Pastor Chris related this “ordinary” feeling or emotion to how our lives can be with God – just simply ordinary.
