Curriculum Theological Underpinnings
“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.”
(Psalm 24: 1)
Using poetic imagery, the biblical authors not only want us to understand that God is ruler over all the earth and its processes but that we have a duty to care for the environment. Every student will have an opportunity to explore and understand the ecology of both their physical and human environment.
