5 Elements That Are Essential In A Christian School


This morning we started our day 'rolling out the red carpet' for our students and their families as they arrived for the first day of school. There was joy on our students faces as they walked up to the entrance way and saw a bright red carpet lined with blue and gold balloons set there especially for them. As a school, we want them to know how special they are to us and how important it is for us to establish that 'partnership' with them from the beginning.

I was reading an article the other day that said the greatest strength to these precious students education is the relationship they (and their family) have with their school and the partnership that is formed. Here at Calvary Academy we couldn't agree more.

Proverbs 22:6 states: "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." We believe that parents have the primary responsibility that is biblically mandated to do just that. We are honored to partner with parents to train up their children, giving our expertise in academics, spiritual teaching and the nurturing of a child's heart.

The article goes on to list 5 elements that are essential in a Christian school and how you, as parents, can count on your "partner" for these critical elements. Here are those 5 elements and we pray they will serve your family well.
