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.

47.7 Protect, Pamper, or Prepare?

"One of the greatest temptations for us parents may be to overprotect our children. But as Dr. Barrett Mosbacker writes here, we harm them by doing so. I hope you’ll enjoy this second installment of Dr. Mosbacker’s series on dangers to our children." —Dan Egeler

Understanding Academic Rigor in the Early Education Classroom

When young children attend an early education program that uses research to inform practice, intentional and active learning takes place throughout the day. Children sing, move, and play as part of their learning experience.

Clear Focus on Our Students

When I talk with Christian school teachers and leaders, I often ask them to describe their greatest joy in ministry. Almost without fail, the answer is a who—seeing the life-changing impact of Christ's love in a student or colleague.

Online Community Discussions 
Mandatory Devotions For Staff
I incorporated mandatory morning devotions (Monday–Thursday) for staff this school year and have received a bit of kickback from some staff members for a variety of reasons. I would love to know of other schools who have devotions and how they have found the best buy-in and success.
Preparing New Teachers   
Our teachers come from a variety of backgrounds. Though all are credentialed, many have not been prepared to develop or deliver instruction from a Biblical perspective. How do you prepare new teachers for this in your school?
Digital Libraries     
Can any of you recommend digital libraries for Middle School and High School which your students have had success with and enjoyed using?
