If you're looking for alternatives to public school, consider attending a private Christian school. Whether online or brick and mortar, a Christian school can offer your child high quality academics, smaller class sizes, and more individualized attention.
The benefits of higher achievements in private schools are well known to be above public school test results. However, a Christian school can also offer your child the following holistically beneficial features in addition to academic excellence.
Safer environment – When asked if they felt safe in school, 64% of private school teens said yes, as opposed to only 36% of public school teens. (State of Nation's Youth, 2000).
Faith-based learning – What's at the core matters. Christian schools promote spiritual values and instruction in ethics which fosters a completely faith-based worldview.
Secondary education – In a certain study, high school students who attend private school are 88% likely to apply for college, as opposed to 57% of public school high schoolers (National Center for Education Statistics).
Community involvement – Stats show both church-related (42%) and non-church related private schools (41%) are more likely to require community service than public schools (17%) (National Center for Education Statistics, 2000).
