Our staff at GATS takes developing cutting-edge curriculum seriously. Jim Poitras in Achieving Excellence in Bible School Administration stated, “There is tremendous value in a well-conceived curriculum. It forces us to focus on the needs, objectives and reasons for the school’s very existence. Jesus said, “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost…” (Luke 14:28, NIV). Someone has said. “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” Excellence is never an accident. A carefully planned curriculum ascertains what the school is trying to accomplish; and determines: (a) why? (b) when? (c) where? (d) who? and (d) how? It ensures that there is a balance between curriculum content and experience; between learning and doing. Truth transforms (John 17:17). D. L. Moody said, “The Bible was not given to increase our knowledge but to change our lives.” A good curriculum and comprehensive objectives require careful planning, implementation, evaluation, and continuous improvement. Curriculum comes from a Latin word that means “race course” and shares the same root word as “current” –the flow of water moving in the same direction. A well planned curriculum will enable students to run the race, move in the right direction, reach their goals, and say with Paul, “…I have finished my course…” (2 Timothy 4:7).” At GATS we are also involved with the pursuit of quality curriculum. In that race there is no finish line. It is a daily quest for continuous improvement. “A school armed with a vision, solid objectives, excellent curriculum, quality academic dean or principal, dedicated faculty, and diligent students that explore academic excellence can one day say, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:6-7, KJV). They will hear the Master Teacher respond, “Well done!” (Matthew 25:21).”
