Why Christian Schooling?

Teacher and Students

The choice you make for your children's education shapes them academically, spiritually, and in their worldview and skills. At Christian schools, the faculty and staff are equipped to address each of these developing areas of a child's life. These schools take seriously the responsibility to develop children's minds, but they don't distance God from academics. They know that developing skills in young people is essential to helping them reach their God-given potential.

Steps to Dealing with Homosexual Issues

Many would agree that our culture has changed a lot in the last several decades. Unfortunately, not all of the changes have been good as our culture has increasingly departed from its Judeo-Christian heritage. One of the most significant changes is evident in the consideration of what is acceptable in the realm of human sexuality. People now seem much more tolerant of aberrant sexual behavior, whether it is premarital sex, cohabitation, marital infidelity, or homosexual behavior. The current culture eschews the biblical understanding of what is acceptable to God.

Fully Engaging Your Faculty

... without clear direction to provide a framework and accountability, staff members will do their own things and go in many different directions.

Online Community Discussions 
Teachers Mentoring Teachers    
I just had a meeting with two of my very experienced teachers. They are interested in starting a teacher mentoring program with two ideas in mind. One is to mentor teachers who are new to our school and the other is to professionally mentor teachers who are new to our profession. I am seeking assistance from anyone who has an established mentoring program.     
AdvancED Accreditation vs Reach
Does anyone know if the changes to Reach standards applies to AdvancED also?
