Healthy Peer Culture
Every student is included as a valued member of the peer group at Evangelhouse Christian Academy. We offer a unique social structure that cultivates 360-degree feedback from peers, parents, and professional staff. Such feedback hones students’ awareness of their behavior and its effects on themselves and others. The connection between their actions and resulting consequences is emphasized in order to develop enhanced social skills. At Evangelhouse Christian Academy, consistent social structures, biblical guidance, and 360-degree feedback produce emotional growth and social maturity.
With supervision, students experience the social atmosphere, group therapeutic process, and spiritual tone of campus life. We nurture a healthy peer culture that emphasizes social responsibility, accountability, and leadership. The staff leads weekly interactive small-group meetings to teach students character development within their current social interactions. Here students learn relevant ways to apply biblical teachings to their actions. As students progress, they learn to look beyond themselves to provide encouragement and support for others.
At Evangelhouse, we have designed our activities and daily structure to improve social competence. Personal responsibility is encouraged and rewarded in our community, and any hurting behavior is totally unacceptable. As Evangelhouse students become more committed to caring for themselves and others in the community, they abandon hurtful behaviors.
