Life at Lipscomb Academy is a daily, personal process of growing more aware of God’s presence and becoming more like Christ, through the Spirit. Members of the Lipscomb community strive to live in the right relationship with God, ourselves and others, in every dimension of life.
Spiritual Life is woven into everything we do, including academics. Science experiments become an opportunity to recognize the power and activity of God on earth. Historical events become a chance to discuss relevant issues and topics in society today. Journaling on literature becomes your child’s doorway to see how their life is a part of God’s bigger story.
Faith is integrated into Lipscomb’s curriculum through foundational standards that start with the spiritual formation of our faculty and staff so that they can guide students in how to engage the world with a kingdom vision, how to encounter God’s presence, and how to see all people as created in God’s image.
The theme for the 2021-2022 School Year
Our spiritual theme for this school year is BEHOLD. While this isn’t a word that we use regularly in our
vocabulary, its meaning is poignant. To stop and gaze at something is a concept that is quite often trumped by the hurried pace of our lives. Our desire is that our community pauses often to behold the nature of our God and to gaze on his beauty. By discovering who He is and His ways, we discover more about who we are as his children which influences how we interact with others.
Lipscomb Academy’s chapel practicum class appoints a spiritual theme for each year. The students prayerfully ask for God to give both clarity and discernment in selecting a theme that is of His will for the upcoming school year. They also spend class time researching ideas and gathering input from teachers, staff, and students from our youngest Mustangs to our seniors. They design a logo to depict the theme and present their final idea to administrators in the late spring. Throughout the year the theme is used to shape chapel, teacher development periods, and advisory discussions ensuring its impact extends beyond just an idea.
The spiritual themes have been a source of unity and purpose that helps to focus us on God’s mission for Lipscomb Academy.
Relationship. Presence. Image. Relevance. Giftedness. Service.
Spiritual formation should be displayed in the life of your child in real and meaningful ways. Our strongest desire is to see our students live more like Jesus and become disciples with an active, living faith.
