EMPHASIS ON

 

The staff at Alliance Christian understands that students do not develop this relationship by chance. It is not enough for us to lecture students on what they need to do. Instead, we believe that we must be intentional about creating venues for our staff to build relationships with students in order to develop opportunities for them to speak into their lives. As such, we do not simply view the supporting programs we offer, such as athletics, theater, and elective classes, as only something fun for our students. Rather, we see them as among the chief venues for our staff to build authentic relationships with our students. Authentic relationships in turn build the trust that is needed for our staff to effectively disciple students through the more formal venues of chapel, mentor groups, and conferences.

WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE IN PRACTICE

AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS

If you were to sit back and think about the people that had the largest impact on your life, one thing that would be common to each of them was a strong and authentic relationship. You knew that person cared for you, spoke truth into your life, and wanted to see you grow. Most likely, that person was someone you met doing something you enjoyed, whether it was music, science class, sports, scouting, or something else. Over time, doing a shared activity built that relationship to the place that your mentor could begin to speak truth into your life.

 

Throughout our schools, you will find that students have opportunities to go beyond the core curriculum and explore things like the arts, music, theater, athletics, elective classes, activities, and more. This opportunities serve as some of the chief venues we have to build strong relationships with our students. Additionally, our small class sizes mean our teachers and staff have the opportunity to build relationships with students for years.
