Lofdal Christian School believes that learners should be taught how to live, and not simply how to make a living. Thousands of people in the world are merely living today, because they are in a situation they don't like or did not choose to be in. They make a living by earning a big salary, living in a mansion and driving an expensive car, but they do not live.
According to us, education is not only about academics, but also about teaching children morals and values, how to cope with difficulties, how to prepare them for the "big world" out there and how to live God-fearing and God-honoring lives.
In such an environment children are equipped for life – they are able to make wise choices, realize their potential and purpose, and live fulfilling lives knowing that by the grace of God, any situation they undertake, will be successful.
1 Corinthians 13:13
'But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God , hope unwaveringly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.'
