The Curriculum Guide describes the educational philosophy of each course offered at SWCHS, as well as the overall philosophy of the school. Philosophy is simply the reason behind an action or idea—its underlying assumptions. Whenever someone asks “why?” he is asking a philosophical question. When a student asks her teacher “why are we studying this?” she is not being disrespectful; she is getting at philosophy. A ministry must know why it exists, or its activities become purposeless. Why does Southwest Christian High School exist? Why do we hold that education should be “Christian?” What “fruit” should a Christian education produce? What goals does SWCHS have for its students? How is the Bible integrated into the curriculum? How does each course implement the philosophy of the school? In answering these questions and others, the Curriculum Guide seeks to preserve the original and unique vision of SWCHS.
