The model of discipleship is that as we grow closer to Christ we share Christ with others. This is how we approach the work at our school, both in the classroom and abroad. The Makarios school not only serves its local community, but also shares what it has learned with the world.
Our students receive a quality gospel-centered education and are equipped to take on life's challenges through a biblical worldview. Our school is primarily funded through our student and staff sponsorship program. Through this support, students also receive breakfast and lunch every day at school and have access to basic medical care through an onsite physician.
Over the years, our teachers and staff at the Makarios School have taken advantage of opportunities to minister not only to our students but to their families as well. The influence of the family on a student’s educational success and overall wellbeing is significant and so we have prioritized building strong relationships with the whole family. In 2016, we formalized that investment and created our Family Empowerment program. This team of staff starts walking alongside families when their child enters the Makarios School at the age of 3 and provides tools and resources all the way until a student graduates. Our staff accomplishes this by providing regular parent training based on the child’s development stage, visiting the families in their home, offering biblical counseling, and putting on family events throughout the year (Father-son, Mother-Daughter, Marriage events etc.) Our hope for these families is that they experience spiritual restoration through the love of Christ, are equipped with the tools to have healthy families, and are positive role models in their communities.
As students and families progress through the school years, our staff identifies those who need extra support whether it be related to academics, behavior, or addressing emotional and spiritual needs. Our counselors and academic interventionists work as a team with teachers and families to create individual plans to make sure struggling students have the support they need in order to thrive in their classrooms. Some of the types of support include counseling, reading intervention, and a movement room for our youngest learners (based on the program Ready Bodies, Learning Minds).
