Those of us who are involved in Victory Christian Academy believe that a school's ultimate purpose should be to equip children to understand the truth about life, the world, and their place in it. Throughout this week we will be looking at ten advantages to the value of a Christian education.
1. You are accountable to God for what your children are taught in school. Proverbs 22:6 is a direct command to parents. It says, "Train up a child in the way he should go..." What your children are taught in school should be a direct extension of your parental views. The teachers under whom your children are taught should be the kind of teachers you would personally hire if your children were being educated in your home.
2. Christian schools offer a better level of instruction. There is no question about it. The test scores over a long period of years are conclusive. The annual Stanford Achievement Test administered to first through eighth grade Christian school students in the western states shows these students to be seven to nineteen months ahead of the national norm in reading, and seven to thirteen months ahead of the national norm in all subject areas.
Desty Cox and Kate Tillman, our teachers at Victory Christian Academy are two of the finest women and teachers I know. They are committed to providing the very best educational experience in a loving caring Christian environment. If you know of a child entering pre-school, starting kindergarten or early elementary age, come to Victory Christian Academy’s OPEN HOUSE on Tuesday June 2nd at 6:30pm and find out for yourselves about the benefits of a Christian Education at VCA.
