Purpose & Philosophy
Capital Christian School is a ministry of Salem First Baptist Church. Our desire is to bring people into a life-changing relationship with God and each other. Therefore, at Capital Christian School we seek to provide opportunities for children to study in a Christ-centered, Bible-based academic environment. Our desire for each student is for them to develop to their full potential spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.
The function of Christian education is to assist parents in fulfilling their responsibility in the provision of a sound academic education integrated with a Christian view of God and the world. A conscious effort is made to view every area of life from God’s perspective. In addition, our desire is to support parents in the training and development of Christian character traits and values based upon the Word of God.
History & Heritage
Capital Christian School has been serving the Salem community for over 30 years. It is an amazing school which offers many enriching and healthy aspects of a child’s education. Our curriculum is Christ centered. Time is set aside daily for Bible instruction and prayer with chapel held twice a month. In addition to academics, our students are instructed in music, physical education and computers. Field trips, that enhance and complement curriculum, are taken by students of all ages.
