The fundamental reason for the existence and operation of a Christian school is to educate children. About this there should be no debate. Noted Christian educator, author, and speaker D. Bruce Lockerbie says it best: "The primary and only legitimate purpose for our school's existence as a school is to be a place of academic teaching and learning where Jesus Christ is honored as Lord. Note the absolute phrase as a school. We who have been called by God to serve Him might have chosen to do so in any of at least a hundred different ways. We might have founded a yearlong youth retreat; we might have begun a drug counseling center or a hospice for unwed mothers or a senior citizens' community. Instead, we chose to found or join a school, which by its very name conveys certain expectations among those who choose to enroll and send their children to us" (2005, 7-8; italics in original).
