CurriculumEdit

Morrison Academy's approach to education integrates "Biblical truth with educational knowledge".[3] The academy teaches a Bible curriculum;[4] other subject areas, including science and social studies, are taught to be used from a Christian perspective.[5][6]

Morrison Academy teaches Earth Science, Life Science, Physical Science, and Engineering Design in elementary middle school.[7] In high school, the scope and sequence are Biology, Chemistry, Human Anatomy, Physical Science, Physics, AP Biology, and AP Chemistry. Morrison Academy has a "Biblical worldview."[7][8] The school's science curriculum guide states that, "Morrison Academy insists that God made the universe... Science, as exemplified in the scientific method, is a process that enables all mankind to gain knowledge about creation, the laws that govern it, and the character of God."[7]

Views on marriageEdit

Morrison Academy actively promotes the biblical belief that marriage is "the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union" as per Genesis 2:18-25 and that sexual intimacy is "only between a man and a woman who are married to each other" as per Matthew 19:4-6. Although Morrison Academy emphasis marriage, divorce is not automatic grounds for job termination.[9][10]

SportsEdit

Morrison Academy's sports teams compete in the Asian Christian Schools Conference in basketball,[11] in the Far East High School Girls Division II Volleyball Tournament which they won in 2011 and 2012,[12] and in the TAS Tigersharks Invitational Swim.[13]
