CHRISTIAN EDUCATION: WORTH THE COST?
Taken from CHRISTIAN SCHOOL COMMENT Volume 47, Number 8, 2015/2016
Is it really worthwhile to spend your hard-earned money on a Christian education? At ACSI, we firmly believe it is. I've invited Karen Winter, superintendent of Turlock Christian Schools (Turlock, CA), to share some of the reasons why Christian schooling is worth what it costs. - Dan Egeler
Our kids mean the world to us as parents. We would do anything to help ensure their future success and Christian character development. However, as financial pressures weigh on families across the country, you may have wondered whether a Christian education is really worth the cost.
As a Christian school superintendent for 35 years in both church and independent schools, I've had the pleasure of hearing hundreds of testimonies from students, parents, and alumni about the exceptional academic education they received at our Christian schools. One of our recent graduates, who attends a prestigious university, recently shared her professor's accolades: "in all my years, I've never had a student who could think and debate with facts so clearly and not just argue. Where did you learn to debate with such conviction?" With a confident smile, our graduate replied, "Senior Bible class."
