Is a Faith-Based School Right for Your Family?

Parental anxieties around how some schools handle education (on a wide variety of issues) has caused Christian education to grow.

Choosing a path for your kids' education is a huge deal; postpandemic, never before have the individual needs of kids been so pushed into the spotlight. Selecting where your child — and family — commits itself for education is no small matter.

"The individual needs of the child should shape the choice for parents," says Myra McGovern of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the largest association for independent schools in the nation. And faith-based schools continue to be a popular choice for parents who, according to the Association of Christian Schools International, want to instill strong principles and values in their kids.

The Faith-Based Difference

While private schools can focus attention on a student's particular talents, private christian schools reach the "principles and values" goal by providing religious instruction, too. Deliberate spiritual teaching can be included in a curriculum that is also strong academically — and it's important to many parents who want their kids to

receive a "built-in moral compass" through their education.

Private Christian schools also:

• Focus on Character Development

Some of a Christian school's beliefs include learning about morals and ethics in light of the Bible. In addition, Christian schools integrate service opportunities into coursework.

• Align Curriculum with Christian Values

Students can explore concepts like science and math through a Christian lens to develop their worldview. In studying academic topics, conversations can transition to discussions about God.

• Include Prayer

Christian schools believe that prayer is the pathway to a relationship with God.

Benefits of Private Education (Secular and Non-Secular)

• Excellent teachers

Educators usually teach in their areas of expertise and are passionate about what they do. With more autonomy within

the classroom, teachers are also able to develop a full understanding of how each student learns and what motivates and inspires each child.

• Greater likelihood of a student completing a degree

Independent schools nurture students’ intellectual abilities and curiosities in addition to their personal and social growth.

• A community of parents who actively participate in their children’s education

Private schools promote rigorous communication between students, parents and teachers to ensure everyone is working toward the same goals for the student.

• The opportunity to choose a school with a like-minded mission

You can select a school whose philosophy, values and teachings are right for your family.

Choosing a private school for your child takes time, research and tenacity. Be informed and resourceful to make the best match for your kids.
