All students are required to memorize portions of Scripture each month.
Christian Americanism places emphasis upon the greatness of America’s heritage and the sacrifices of her heroes. America’s Constitution guarantees liberties to educate to preserve freedom. We unashamedly teach the Biblical doctrines of self-discipline, respect for those in authority, obedience to law, their natural outgrowth, and love for flag and country. All students and parents are required to memorize these pledges and to stand and recite them at the appropriate times.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
- Pledge of Allegiance to the Christian Flag:
I pledge allegiance to the Christian flag, and to the Savior for Whose kingdom it stands, one Savior, crucified, risen, and coming again, with life and liberty for all who believe.

I pledge allegiance to the Bible, God’s Holy Word. I will make it a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. I will hide its word in my heart that I might not sin against God.
Christian Leadership Training

A Teacher can and will be jailed and / or fined for failing to report alleged child abuse.
