Why Christian Schooling...
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!"
The understanding of Christian education is the understanding that
"the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom”. Without Christ first in all things, life is meaningless and education can be misdirected. Christian education is based on God’s Word because God is the basis for understanding all subjects. We understand
the sciences better by recognizing that they are a tool for
describing God’s handiwork in creation. We appreciate math for its
ability to define the processes that take place
as the Lord God directs and sustains our world. A Christian worldview is formulated in the minds of students by examining every subject in the light
of God’s Word.
There are many benefits to Christian schooling, including an
excellent education, Christian teachers and families, and a positive
Christian environment. But the primary reason for parents to send their
children to a Christian school is to train them to love the Lord God with
all of their heart, mind, soul and strength. When we train our
children’s minds, we affect how they think and how they live.
Christian education has been criticized as sheltering children from
the “real” world. Rather, it provides training
for young minds to make wise choices in their lives. It also provides a
Scriptural perspective so students can understand and consider the world
through the lens of God’s Word. Our hope and prayer
is that our children will grow in the love of the Lord and will gain
the mind of Christ. Christian education is an eternal investment!
