Faith-based Learning

The ROBS learning experience is a holistic one that is grounded in our Christian faith. Character lessons based on the biblical “fruit of the Spirit” infuse social-emotional lessons throughout the day. The integrated approach helps students make connections across disciplines, from Bible class to the morning broadcast on KROB, advisory class, weekly Chapel, and throughout academic areas.

The Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Galatians 5:22-23

Our Community

We are a community of many faiths and belief systems, and we welcome all families who want their child to experience a ROBS education. Every faculty and staff member at ROBS has professed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, with many different Christian denominations represented. Our students also come from many different religious backgrounds. Here’s a look at our current enrollment:

What We Teach About Religion

We approach religious questions from a Christian perspective with messages such as these:

  • God created the entire universe, and he created us in his image.
  • Jesus died for our sins so we can live forever with God.
  • God gave each of us special gifts and talents, and we should use them to glorify him.
  • God is love. We show our love for God by loving and serving others.
  • The Bible is the word of God.

What does faith-based education look like in practice?

Students attend Bible classes regularly. The intentional lessons of these Bible classes are supplemented by the rituals of faith that have been here since day one: daily prayer and devotionals, weekly Chapel and advisory lessons, and the “fruit of the Spirit” that undergirds our character program. If you take a look around ROBS, you’ll see signs of God everywhere.
