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.

The Role of Athletic Directors in Operating a Safe K–12 Athletic Program

Athletic programs are particularly vulnerable to lawsuits because students are involved in high-risk activities. While all sports involve higher risks of injury for students than they would otherwise face in their normal academic settings, some sports clearly have more risk of injury than others.

Grade Conversion for Unusual and Traditional Chinese Transcripts   
Does anyone have a good source for converting unusual transcripts to match the U.S.GPA system? We have a couple of student applicants with transcripts reflecting scores of 1–8 by subject, with 1 being low and 8 being high. The school and agent were not able to provide a standard for converting the grades to percentages.    
Homework?      
This will be my second year in 4th grade and I have so many questions...Do you give homework?  If so, how much and how often? 
Using Scrip Funds for Tuition
I have heard that there are schools that allow parents to apply the profits made from Scrip sales toward their tuition accounts. We have a similar opportunity for parents to earn tuition dollars and I am interested in how that works both legally and practically.
