Our Philosophy

The philosophy of Bates Memorial High School is based on the premise that God is the supreme ruler of the universe, and as such He should be made the foundation all life's operation. We believe that man was made in the image of God therefore, he is unique. He is capable of developing to his fullest potential spiritually, physically and mentally. Christian education provides the students of Bates with a true knowledge of God, fellowship with Him in study and service, and with the opportunity to be restored in the image of the creator.
