The philosophy of LUOA is based on the premise that man’s ultimate purpose is to glorify God (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 10:31); thus LUOA serves as an extension of the family to aid them in their God-given responsibility to educate their own children for the glory of God (Psalm 78:5-6). LUOA exists to help each student reach his full potential by guiding him in developing spiritually, morally, personally, socially, and academically (Luke 2:52). The faculty and staff recognize that only when a student accepts Christ as Savior and yields to His Lordship can he realize his own unique potential (Romans 10:10-13). LUOA is an academic arm of Liberty University. Teachers and administrative staff must be born-again, professing Christians who are committed to living for Jesus Christ, understanding that their lives serve as an example to those whom they teach. Education and learning are biblical imperatives (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Proverbs 3:1-9); therefore, all instruction is biblically based (Deuteronomy 4:2-9). The curriculum was designed and is maintained based on the following biblical themes:
CREATION: God’s mandate at creation was for mankind to have dominion over the earth (Genesis 1:1; 26-28), which has grown to require learning in the areas of language, mathematics, the physical and natural sciences, history, technology, and the fine arts.
THE FALL OF MAN: The hostile environment resulting from the Fall of man (Genesis 3:9-24), intensifying his need to understand all areas of general curriculum, as well as the social sciences, health sciences and the study of God’s written word.
REDEMPTION: Man is saved by professing Jesus Christ as Lord (Romans 10:10; Ephesians 2:8). Our curriculum is written with the intent of teaching all students this biblical truth.
DISCIPLESHIP: The command for Christians to evangelize the lost and to disciple believers (Matthew 28:18-20) further elevates the need to master all of the above areas
RESTORATION: Jesus rose from the dead and prepares a place for all those who believe, in order that they may be restored with Him (Hebrews 9:28; John 14:3).
