Student Life

Abundant life!

Under the academy's overall mission (see below), Lake Pointe supports a robust student life program, to support the relational and social sides of the students. The program is based upon the premise that students don't need more activities; they need more life in their activities!

A surprising student life mission

The mission of Lake Pointe's student life program is the academy's mission, one and the same. Oftentimes, student activities are treated with different expectations, because... well, because it's "activities," it's "fun", and, well... "just hanging out." You know.

No, we don't know.

Jesus doesn't exclude any areas of life when He said, "Follow me, and I'll make you fishers of men."
The New Testament gives constant examples of Jesus interacting with others, socially, conversationally, and in service capacities, and He always honored His Father God. Jesus allowed Himself to have such a good time, that the sour-faced Pharisees hounded Him, calling Jesus a "drunkard and a glutton." 

We shamelessly pursue good, clean fun!
  • We want to teach our students to have such a good time in God-honoring ways that students would never want to slink into inappropriate or risque forms of amusement.

We unapologetically seek to prevent adults from getting in the way!
  • Staff members and parents do provide mentoring, wise counsel, and modeling, but it is not the role of the adults to do all the planning, work, and follow-through for fully capable, emerging adults. LPA uses student life activities brainstorming, planning, and execution to teach young people how to lead, to serve, and (gasp!) how to work!

 

How Lake Pointe's mission applies to athletics:

Partner with parents to lead students into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by
       educating (modeling and teaching students to relate in enjoyable ways that "live in the light")
       encouraging (allowing students to take risks and to learn by succeeding and failiing in a relatively safe environment)
       and equipping them (building skills and discernment by causing students to lead and plan their own activities)
in intentional excellence from a Biblical worldview.
