OUR SCHOOL CULTURE
Our school culture, thrives on excellence, fairness, friendliness, inclusion, and godly incarnational relationship. Our students are trained to be excellent in character, charisma, and credential.
They are empowered to discover, develop, and use their God-given gifts and talents to serve others with the mindset of Christ. The school culture help students pursue educational experience that fosters exploration of new ideas in light of the scriptures, developing leadership skills and experience that equip them to be world changers through innovative and inspiring instructions, thereby creating passionate desire and willingness to acquire sound and wholesome knowledge.
It is the blending of biblical principles as found in scriptures with traditional subject matter areas. Integration begins with the recognition that all truth is God’s truth. Within all disciplines, subject areas and activities of the school, there are elements that can point students in the direction of their Creator. The task of the Christian school teacher is to help students discover those elements by integrating applicable scriptures and scriptural principles with what they are learning in math, science, literature and indeed all subjects and activities of the school. For students to develop a biblical worldview, all subjects must be taught from an integrated Christian perspective.
Brief History of the School
The school was founded on the 10th of September 2012 by Rev. Samuel G. A. Kargbo and wife, Mrs. Emma E. Kargbo. The school started with 37 students and was run for three (3) years before it was formally registered and recognized by the Ministry of Education as a private Christian school. Agape is a one shift mixed school for both boys and girls. The purpose for establishing the school was to provide quality education school that is mission driven in the Rokel community of the Western Rural District of Freetown. The school started in the compound of Mr. Alex for three years and later moved to its own school property of 12 classrooms at # 1 Fire Force Drive, Sima Town, Rokel in 2016.
