Why a Christian School?
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” 3 John 1:4
What makes parents decide to send their children to private school? After all, there is a perfectly good public school down the street that comes complete with transportation.
The simplest answer: parents choose Christian schools so their children will have a Christian education. But what does that mean?
It means parents want God to consistently and thoroughly be part of their children’s worldview.
It means that every day, while their children learn academically, they also learn about God and faith.
It means that as their children’s young minds are being formed, so are their hearts and souls.
It means parents know that someday their children will graduate high school and go to college and maybe more school after that, and then their formal education will be over. But with their Christian foundation, they will continue to learn and grow and become closer to God. And their souls will never end; they will always have an eternal life ahead.
It means parents choose for their children to have an education rooted in Biblical truth.
It means that God has given them the gift of children and parents know they are responsible for caring for more than flesh and bones; they are also responsible for caring for souls.
It means that parents realize it’s their job to give their children the best opportunities to be good, Godly people.
That is why parents choose to send their children to Christian schools.
