Modeling Discipleship


Becoming a true disciple

Personal Development –

Art and Science of Leadership:

The Art – thought process, mind-set, attitude
The Science – actions and skills
The building blocks of purpose driven, servant leadership are woven throughout our program in the academic curriculum and enrichment activities. Students prepare talks, welcome other students, direct the morning devotional, and teach younger groups of students. Students learn to take initiative to plan, accomplish, report, and adjust their goals.

Discipleship: RELIGION at American Family Education

We honor the values and beliefs of the multi-denominational families we serve and provide a positive environment for all students to explore and strengthen their faith while learning academic principles. As students find relationships between academics and their faith, they present these ideas to their parents to be approved and expounded upon. The teacher’s role is to encourage the student to find these relationships and share these discoveries with their families.

We keep to the following foundational tenets as explained by the Founding Fathers:

Recognition and worship of a Creator who made all things.

That the Creator has revealed a moral code of behavior for happy living which distinguishes right from wrong.

That the Creator holds mankind responsible for the way they treat each other.

That all mankind live beyond this life.

That in the next life individuals are judged for their conduct in this one.

Part of how we structure the schedule of class time, how teachers lead and how the curriculum work is designed is specifically to encourage the connection between the student and their Creator.

See the printable version of the EDGE Journal for Explorers, Scholars and Mission Phase students on their page.

Each block of classes, Family Council meeting, or staff meeting begins with a devotional.


This is a quiet, reverent time after devotional when students can record their discoveries, feelings and promptings. This is a wonderful time for creating a written record of lessons learned and how this knowledge applies to that student’s individual mission. (Students are invited to be writing the entire time which is usually about 10 or 15 minutes.) This exercise is not about spelling/handwriting. Instead, it is for the student to learn to ponder, to listen and be taught by the spirit. This record will be the main resource when writing a thesis on purpose.
