Division Philosophy

 

 

The Philosophy of the Education Division

The shared vision of the Education Division of Brewton-Parker College desires that its graduates teach all students effectively, while upholding a Christian worldview.  The theme, Reflective Pathways from Theory to Practice, which our teacher candidates pursue for this vision to become a reality, relates to the historical principles of the college as a church-related institution.  Thus, our teacher candidates will become reflective educators who possess strong academic knowledge and appropriate dispositions.  The teacher candidate will also demonstrate the principle of “soul competency, the worth of the individual, and the freedom of individual conscience. The principle of religious liberty affirms education, but not indoctrination, and the principles of the priesthood of the believer affirms the equality of all students in the learning process” (Brewton-Parker College 2005-06 Catalog, p. 11).

 

The mission of Brewton-Parker College, a Georgia Baptist college, is to develop the whole student through the application
of Biblically-centered truth to a liberal arts curriculum in a community of shared Christian values.
