Bensalem Baptist School is an agency of the home that espouses Christian education. The school was begun as a discipleship ministry of Bensalem Baptist Church. It is designed to train only young people who have received Jesus Christ as their Savior or who come from homes where parents are saved and are fundamental in their doctrinal positions. The school is an integral ministry of the church; therefore, its philosophy will be consistent with the doctrines and philosophy of Bensalem Baptist Church.
The academic program, through the traditional approach, is developed to provide students with the best possible program of studies. We emphasize the mastery of the fundamental blocks of material necessary for satisfactory achievement and stress the acquisition of facts and concepts in the various areas of study, leading to the development and exercise of the powers of reasoning. Methods of teaching proven to be effective are utilized with a constant search for better methods. Realizing the difference in innate ability, we encourage and expect each student to do their best. We believe the traditional system of education educates the mind and builds character. It encourages competition and teaches the value of living under a free enterprise system of government.
Character training is an important element in Bensalem Baptist School. We believe that at the heart of character training is obedience (deciding to do right), which will eventually cultivate an inner self-discipline, and is essential to the emotional, physical, social, and spiritual well-being of the student. The teacher is the authority in the classroom. Discipline is administered firmly but fairly. To obey, to do right, to love God and country, and to always measure one's attitudes against the principles laid out in the Scriptures, are characteristics we strive to instill in each student, thus equipping them for their role in God's plan for their life and for their proper place in society.
