5 REASONS PARENTS SHOULD CHOOSE CHRISTIAN EDUCATION FOR THEIR CHILDREN

on .

1. PHILOSOPHY

Children are able to learn biblical philosophy in a godly and safe environment. The worldly philosophy that is constantly bombarding the family needs to be suppressed by the biblically-sound philosophy taught through a Christian curriculum by godly teachers.

2. CHARACTER

Children are taught character traits that are not only biblical in their foundation but are exemplified in the adults who teach them. Faithfulness, loyalty, obedience, and truthfulness are just a few of those traits that are so lacking in the public arena.

3. PARTNERSHIP

Christian school personnel desire to partner with parents in teaching their children. The responsibility of training children is given by God to the parents. It is a blessing when other Christian adults who are educators can come alongside parents and educate their children.

4. THE THREE R’S

Children are not only taught the 3 R’s—reading, writing, arithmetic—but are also taught history and science from a biblical world view. For example, the main purpose for teaching students to read is so that they can read the Bible. Without knowing the truth of the Word of God, we would be a people without the hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Saviour.

5. LIFE-LONG FRIENDSHIPS

Children make life-long Christian friendships with their peers as well as their mentors. Our five grown children still communicate with their childhood peers, many of them serving the Lord in ministries around the world. They also still contact their teachers and seek godly counsel from these wise adults.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION GIVES CHILDREN A HEAD START ON LIFE

on .

I love spring! After cold, harsh weather, the sun shines warmly on us. Spring is preparation for growth. People are preparing their gardens by pulling the weeds that have grown during the winter months. We are tilling the soil, adding nutrients to help those seeds, which will be planted, to grow into plants.

Years ago, someone told me that sending their child to a Christian school seemed like putting them in a “bubble” where they did not experience the things of this world. This person thought that Christian school children are sheltered from the real world, therefore, they would not be prepared for living in the real world.

I told her that rather than a “bubble,” the Christian school is like a

Passing on a Heritage

on .

A heritage is something that is possessed by one person and passed on to someone else who follows after. To the unsaved, heritage is often nothing more than material possessions, which are passed to family and survivors through wills, trusts, and gifts.

For the family of God, however, the important thing that must be passed on is a spiritual heritage the gospel and the principles from the Word of God which is extended to others through teaching, preaching, example, and prayer. The gospel and the Bible life principles enable men not only to obtain eternal life, but also to live lives that glorify and please the Lord.

Reaping the Benefits of a Christian School

on .

The joy received from watching a child grow academically and mature in the Lord makes all the effort, all the time, all the money worth it.

As a parent, you have prayed, researched, sought counsel, and examined all possible educational options. You have conscientiously made the decision to send your child to a Christian school because you understand the value and benefits of a Christian education. It might prove enlightening and encouraging to you to carefully re-examine the specific reasons that prompted you to make this critical choice for your child and why today you are reaping the benefits of a Christian school.
