"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself." Luke 10:27
Step by Step Christian School endeavors to promote the social and emotional growth of our students at all levels. Our goal is to socially equip our students for fellowship in the body of Christ throughout their lives. By teaching children to respect themselves and others, to appreciate both the differences and similarities God has blessed us with, and to cherish others as a gift from God, we create a loving environment that allows students to be happy in the Step by Step community. All students at Step by Step wear uniforms every day. This improves academic focus and behavior in the classroom by removing the element of peer-pressure over material status, so that students find value in others based on positive personality traits.
Step by Step's small student body allows our school to function with a family atmosphere. Small classes lead to strong student teacher relationships, and allow for our staff to care for each child and each child's family with compassion. We recognize that modeling and nurturing positive relationships at school continues to serve children when they leave for the afternoon, as well as when they have graduated from our school into their next experiences.
Within a cooperative learning environment, we strive to celebrate not only success on an individual level, but to teach children the joy of sharing and celebrating the success of others. Our school community rewards hard work with appreciation, so that students' self-esteem grows. Step by Step helps students to feel pride in their accomplishments, promoting a strong work ethic that will support them in a future in the service of the Lord.
