It’s not news to say that most Americans are disgruntled and dismayed with the situation in the schools. American schools are held to unrealistic standards that teach our children little that will aid them as they go out into the world. Between the rift of education is a rift in morality. Public schools are pressured into taking religion out of the classroom and focusing on a world view that encompasses a variety of cultural and religious standpoints that aim to take our children further and further from the truth of the Lord. The rise in Christian education was born in this rift. More and more, we seek to send our children to Christian schools that will not only give them the tools they need to venture out in the world but to do so with the beliefs so cemented in our faith.
Christian schools are rising in popularity, and with the growth of government issued school vouchers, they are becoming more and more of the standard in which we hope for. Some of the best schools in America are Christian schools and universities. Notre Dame is a prime example of a stellar Christian educational facility. Independent schools don’t have the constraints of standardized testing, which allows for teachers in these schools to focus on actually educating our children. In private high schools teachers are able to take the time in teaching our children the lessons of their faith within the confines of progressive information that will arm them. Students graduating from Christian schools and other private institutions are often looked at first by the colleges they apply to. It’s a testament to how serious a parent is about the education of their child.
A private, Christian day school is the best decision a parent can make for their child. Christian schools are vital to the unquestioning survival of our faith in an ever changing world. A Norfolk private school might not be the most cost effective option for educational needs, but the quality of the education provided is a priceless gift that we can give our children. Many Christian schools have funding options available that include loans, scholarships and sometimes even grants. Before dismissing the idea of Christian schools due to cost, you should look into what options are available to you. Education is the one gift we can give our children that will truly last a lifetime.
