Since 1988, Tupelo Christian Preparatory School has been leading students, in partnership with Christian families, to know Christ and make Him known through rigorous academics, challenging athletics, stimulating arts and servant-hood activities. TCPS is dedicated to the glory of God and is founded on the belief that God is the source of all truth as revealed in the Person of Jesus Christ. All areas of learning (spiritual, academic, physical, and social) are taught from the biblically-based belief that truth is revealed in the Word of God. The Bible has prime significance in all subject areas.

  The Goal of Education

At Tupelo Christian Preparatory School (TCPS) the goal of education is to glorify God by developing students who are equipped and motivated to serve God and others, as they apply a Christian worldview that sees Scripture as authoritative; man as created in God’s image, yet fallen; and God as Creator, Lord and Savior (Proverbs 9:10).

Because the Bible is true and authoritative, it governs the entire curriculum at TCPS (2 Timothy 3:16). The content of every subject reflects who God is and what he has done. God not only reveals truth through the word he has spoken in Scripture, but also through the creation he has made (Psalm 19:1). Consequently, since our world was created by a wise God, not random chance, science and math can be tested and proved. The words we speak or write have meaning and are true or false, good or evil, creative or destructive.

Students are a crowning part of God’s creation, made in his image so that they can think his thoughts and do his will (Psalm 8:3-6a). God has given them a mandate to, be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it (Genesis 1:28). This is the purpose of education, equipping the mind and character for a life-long adventure of learning and practice, to fulfill the creation mandate in a godly manner.

The task of true education is to develop in students an understanding of God and the reality he has created; to practice that understanding to exercise a creative-redemptive dominion over creation within the context of loving God and fellow human beings. With an attitude of worship, God is glorified as his image is reflected in the lives of students, teachers and parents.
