Sending your child to a Christian school allows them to participate in an enhanced educational experience, one that often offers more—at times considerably more—than they would find in a secular or non-denominational school.

Many parents of Christian school students appreciate the strong sense of community schools create. Shared values foster a tight-knit atmosphere for both parents and students and this communal feeling cultivates a school where everyone is comfortable getting involved.

Christian schools offer a full curriculum while also providing a strong foundation in the values, character, and the traditions of Christian life. In addition to the core curriculum, they typically also have required religion courses in the faith of the school.

Christian schools welcome students of all beliefs.  While schools provide an education conducted through the lens of basic Christian values, students come from a wide range of traditions and backgrounds. What faith-based schools offer is an enhanced curriculum, one that provides an explicit attention to values, ethics, character, and the students' spiritual life.
