Why Christian Education?

Why Christian Education?

Why choose Christian Education . . .

  1. Children do not become stronger Christians by being taught non-Christian thinking, but by being taught Christian thinking, and there is no such person as a “neutral” school teacher who neither advances nor inhibits religion. School represents at least 16% of your child’s time. It is prime time, a training time, and Christian school education represents a positive Bible centered form of instruction that will build a child up in the faith – not tear them down.

     Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.

    Proverbs 19:27

  2. In a Christian school, a student is exposed to the centrality of God in all of life. In public education, a student is legally “sheltered” from this important dimension of education.
  3. Even though students in Christian institutions are not perfect and still sinners, overall their influence is usually more constructive and different from the ones you might find in public schools. Christian education offers a place for students to create good friendships as well.

I prefer to send my children to a Christian school because Christ is central to all information taught and caught. The public school is basically humanistic and materialistic in its approach to life and the fundamental questions of human existence and purpose. The Christian school holds a unique position with the home and the church.
