4 Benefits of a Christian Education

A Christian education combines the benefits of a private school education with the benefit of spiritual formation. If you’ve considered enrolling your child in a private school, take a moment to look at the benefits of a private school offering a Christian education.

The Benefits of A Christian Education

Teachers as Role Models

A Christian education centers on the same values you teach at home: love, kindness, discipline, and a relationship with the Lord. At a Christian school, the teachers are consistently modeling these values to your child. Your child’s school years are a prime time for their developing worldview, and having continuity between what is taught at home and at school can have a big impact on their development.

Prayer Time and Study

As parents, we try to teach our children the importance of building good habits, like brushing their teeth every day. A Christian education helps your child develop good spiritual habits. Consistent prayer time and Bible study are usually a part of that education and are two habits that will benefit them their entire life. Not only do they allow your child to reflect on their actions throughout the day, but it grows their relationship with God. Plus, they learn how to study God’s word on their own.

A Safe and Nurturing Environment

A Christian campus gives your child the opportunity to make friends with other students in a safe environment. Instead of just being punished when they break a rule, faculty has the opportunity to encourage resolution through a Biblical response. The concepts of forgiveness, kindness, and humility are inherent in a Christian education, and play a  valuable part in your child’s social interaction and conflict resolution skills.

Academic Achievement

According to the National Center for Education, more private school students consistently perform at the advanced level than public school students. Combining the advanced academics of private schools with the advantages of a Christian education creates a rewarding and effective education for your student. Not only do they graduate prepared for college and adult life academically, but also spiritually.

  1. I like how you said that a school like this allows your child to make friends in a safe environment. Personally, I believe that it would be a great way to get them Christian school leadership because of their close involvement with the teachers who will probably have a deep background in their belief system. This would allow for your child to learn and grow more quickly and potentially help them know what it takes to help run a congregation in a specific area.

      Yes! Safety is of utmost importance. In addition, being around strong Christian leaders is a definitely a PLUS. Teaching is one thing, demonstrating is another!

  2. It was helpful that you mentioned how a Christian campus can provide a student with a safe environment to learn and develop friendships. I like how you included that a Christian education can help install spiritual habits into their everyday routine. My niece will be going to high school soon. Considering attending a Christian accredited high school could be very beneficial to her development and education.
