Principal's Welcome


Who am I? Why am I here? These are two questions that people inevitably ask themselves as they try to find their place in this great, big world. At Oskaloosa Christian School, we want to help our students answer those questions in a way that makes sense and fills them with hope for their futures.



Our school theme for 2019-2020 is “Living Out God's Story”. Essentially, the theme points our students to the understanding that each of them is a vital and integral part of the story God is telling as history unfolds. There is no one on this earth by accident; each individual is a special creation of God, designed to bring Him honor and glory and to enjoy his Creator, both while here on earth and in eternity to come. We ‘live and move and have our being’ in Him, touching the lives of everyone we meet and, in the process, build relationships and change the courses of each other’s lives. We reflect God in how we think, act, and speak, and we want to teach our students to do that in a way that makes them salt and light to whomever God places in their paths.



Simultaneously, we want students to understand that they are children of the Heavenly King. Their identities are not caught up in their gifts and talents, their peers, or their circumstances. Their identities are as image bearers of Jesus Christ, and ‘neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ (Romans 8:38, 39, NIV) They can go through life with a deep, abiding hope that they will always be loved by their Heavenly Father, and no one can ever take that away from them.

I would love to visit with you and tell you more about this blessed institution, a place where God lives and moves each day and where His presence is abundantly felt and humbly appreciated by students, parents, and staff alike.



In Christ,
