Mission, Vision and Values
Biola Youth Academics is committed to serve and support the homeschool community, along with public, private and missionary students, by providing academically rigorous programs from a biblical worldview. In partnership with parents, we educate students, equipping them to engage culture as disciples of Christ.
To empower Christian parents to cultivate and nurture their child's unique purpose to become a relevant and redemptive voice in a changing world.
The values of Biola Youth Academics are those essential things that guide how we carry out our mission. Our core values are Academic Excellence, Spiritual Growth and Community. These three values cohere with Biola University’s learning outcomes of truth (patterns of thought), transformation (patterns of heart) and testimony (patterns of action) as we live and learn in relationship.
- Academic Excellence: We believe in doing our best to glorify God, whether in preparing students for higher education, trade school or the workforce. We seek to inspire students to become life-long learners and to pursue subject matter mastery.
- Spiritual Growth: We believe that spiritual growth and transformation are paramount in the life of the believer to become closer to God, to become more like Him and to lead godly lives for His kingdom.
- Community: We believe that through interactions with fellow Christians in community, and dependence upon the Spirit, character is sharpened, and we grow in our ability to live out authentic, Christ-honoring lives.
Statement of Faith
"I believe in Jesus Christ as my Savior and that the Bible (both Old and New Testaments) is the inspired and infallible Word of God. I believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, and His personal return in power and glory and in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit."
