Share your insights to strengthen Christian Schools!


classroom
Too often, our society associates school improvement with test results. However, because schooling is about nurturing children toward the broad qualities of Christian adulthood, raising test scored does not necessarily strengthen a Christian school! What are our educational concerns and how do we address them? For example:

  • How do we reveal God’s character, nature, and wisdom through-out the school day?
  • What should a Christian learn and how is this best taught in each curricular area?
  • How can the school climate reflect God's concerns that we "love our neighbor"?

Under each curricular topic below*, follow the ongoing discussion forum OR just read the highlights chosen by director. Learn & Share!

*Home Schoolers - we need your input and critiques!
