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.

47.8 Christian Education Worth the Cost?

Is it really worthwhile to spend your hard-earned money on a Christian education? At ACSI, we firmly believe it is. I’ve invited Karen Winter, superintendent of Turlock Christian Schools (Turlock, California), to share some of the reasons why Christian schooling is worth what it costs. —Dan Egeler

A Biblical Model for Discipline and Dismissal

Though letting a person go under the "at-will" presumption is legal in most cases, it is not always the right or wise thing to do.

Bilingual Education in a Globalized World

Not all schools are in a position to offer a high quality bilingual program, so ACSI has developed an English as a Foreign Language learning program specially designed for schools who are not ready or able to be fully bilingual but want to equip their students through a robust language arts program in English.

Transgender Bathroom Admissions Policy  
I'm curious if anyone here has seen this link...? They are under fire for having policies that discriminate against gay or transgender students. It is espoused that this is not allowed because they accept money for free and reduced lunches.
Final Exams     
Does your school have a policy on final exams—for example, final exams count as x% of the semester grade—or do you leave that up to individual teachers to decide?
Online Resource for HS Bible Teachers
I invite you to check out this Bible Project link. Having checked out the free videos (donations accepted to complete the project), I believe they are excellent in quality and would be welcomed by most of our member schools.
