Cascade Vista Baptist School

Cascade Vista

The primary purpose of CVBS is to provide an opportunity for children to learn and study in a Christ-centered academic environment.

Since it is futile to teach students how to make a living without teaching them how to live, it is the objective of CVBS to teach each student the Biblical principles which give a proper Christian perspective of his world and equip each student to live a knowledgeable, responsible and creative Christian life in this world.
Christian education is the teaching of God’s revealed truth through the study of God’s Word. All subject matter is to be explained in the light of God’s truth. We seek to educate children so that they may learn to successfully integrate God’s Word into every aspect of living. When one has a personal relationship with Christ, who is both Creator and Sustainer of the universe, the sciences become more exciting. History assumes fresh importance when understanding that nations do not rise and fall without God’s allowance or intervention. The social sciences become more meaningful when seen through God’s redemption and unconditional love.

The primary responsibility of Christian education rests with the Christian parent. We strive to establish close cooperation with parents to assist in the awesome responsibility of training their children to know, love and obey God.
