CITY SCHOOL is a Christ-centered private school that provides a rich education to a diverse community, equipping children academically, spiritually, and relationally to be true servant-leaders. At City School our motto is Love to LEARN, Learn to LEAD, Lead to SERVE. There is a natural progression in this phrase that gets at the heart of being a student of God’s world and a servant to His people. We believe that, regardless of our age or station in life, we all are called to learn about God and His truth and to lay down our lives for others.
Children are natural learners, and the early years of a child’s life are filled with rapid knowledge acquisition and skill development. All too often, however, schools accidentally squelch children’s curiosity and love of learning. At City School we apply specific strategies to foster the God-given curiosity and love of learning that all children possess.
Leaders often are thought of as being out-in-front, the point-person, but that’s only part of a bigger picture. Before one can lead others effectively, one must learn to lead oneself. Toward that end we consistently work with students to develop habits of attention, respect, and self-control. We all are called to be leaders, even if only of ourselves at first.
True leadership of others involves service and sacrifice: it’s being out in front and being on your knees in service; thinking more highly of others than yourself; laying down your life for your friends. The service opportunities & requirements at City School allow students to learn through experience that leadership and service are inextricably linked.
