A Christian school is run by a Christian organization which runs on the principles of Christianity. These are also known as missionary schools in India. Organizations like ACSI (The Association of Christian Schools International) have started various Christian schools in America and other countries. Several thousands of schools are now members of ACSI.
The main aim of Christian schools is to provide personal and professional development in a child. Teachers of Christian schools are trained to teach children in the field of moral education as well. Through the stories of Christ, children are taught moral values like sincerity and chastity. In several places, Christian schools are run by a group of nuns dedicated to the service of children. The funds required to manage the schools are sent by the association the school is associated with. They have set principles and policies for the governance of the school. Discipline is given a lot of importance and the students are continuously monitored for their behavior in the school.
Several categories like Roman Catholic, Episcopal, Lutheran, Conservative Protestant and other orders run various Christian schools in the US and other countries.
Christian schools offer quality education at very reasonable prices. Parents trust Christian schools as they are known to impart value education along with class room teaching. Children are encouraged to participate in various competitions organized by other schools. Overall development of the child takes place if the child is exposed to other activities other than text books and class room teaching.
Christian schools offer free education to children who belong to the weaker section of the society. Proving quality education is their motto and they seem to be successful in their end favor in all the places where they have set up their schools.
Christian schools are set up usually in spacious locations. The infrastructure is suitable for running a school. Vast playgrounds encourage students to participate in various sports and games conducted in the school. Physical education plays a vital role in the overall development of the child. Children spend most of their time in a school and it becomes the responsibility of the school to impart education that supports the overall development of the child.
Every year several Christian schools are being set up in the country. Parents are also satisfied with the kind of education these Christian schools provide and want to enroll their children in their schools. As the society encourages their establishment, several Christina schools look forward to setting up their branches in various locations.
