Choosing an all-boys school will offer your son the chance to grow and develop at the same pace as his classmates—unlike at a coed school where girls mature faster than boys. He’ll also join a learning environment where he can maximize his academic and personal potential.
Choosing a Christian school for your son will bring a lot of opportunity for him. He’ll be attending a school where he won’t be told he has to be Christian, rather why and how to be Christian. One thing you need to remember before deciding on a Christian school is that many schools follow different Christian curricula. For example, while some schools may teach based on the Catholic calendar, others may follow and teach under the Protestant tradition.
