Why attend a Christian school?
In Christian schools, students learn to see the world through the lens of God’s Word. Christian school teachers don’t avoid the world. They help students see it just the way it is: created by God, smudged by sin, and restored again in Christ. This education is Biblevision in full color. It is learning to use the glasses of the Bible to figure out the world.
