Prospective students often wonder, “What advantages come from a Christian education?” Good question. The short answer is: holistic.
A line from the Bible gives the foundation for what that means. Colossians 1:20 says that Christ “reconciles to himself all things.” The rest of that short book makes it clear that “all things” includes everything that has been created, all wisdom and knowledge, and all philosophies and human traditions. In Christ we have a holistic view of life.
Christian education builds on that thought. Public education requires that all matters of faith be separated from academics. No prayer in schools. No faith assumptions in the classroom. A secular education excludes the Bible from discussion.
Christian education says that holistic instruction means that all academic issues be integrated with faith. It says that because Christ first reconciled all things to himself, we can build on that reconciliation to have a holistic worldview.
Why choose Christian education? In short, only Christian education includes “all things.” Like Colossians says, nothing is left out.
