Our mission is to foster academic excellence and biblical virtue to equip students for lives as local and global Christian servants.
Discipleship. Scholarship. Excellence. TPS promotes excellence in discipleship and scholarship as an integrated process (2 Pet 1:5-7).
Discipleship – Teaching is a mentoring role that influences not just the mind but also the heart and character of the student.
Scholarship – Sincere pursuit of knowledge considers sources and perspectives throughout history and across cultures. Worldview provides a framework for understanding knowledge and seeking truth in faith. Sincere scholarship can build and strengthen true faith.
Excellence – The traditional concept of virtue (an older word for excellence) assumes that knowledge and character are interrelated and inseparable, with each developing and reinforcing the other. TPS – The Potter’s School was originally called The Potter’s School (from Isaiah 64:8). TPS’s founding and ongoing purpose is to provide academic excellence from a biblical worldview to homeschool and independent students worldwide.
