Prince William County Private and Christian Schools:
Why Choose a Christian Learning Environment Over Public?
Prince William Christian schools and private Christian schools may have a stigma of being super strict and that they emphasize discipline. This has often detoured parents from Christian schooling. Although this has some truth in it, based on past history, today’s Christian private schools have moved along with the times. Not only are Christian beliefs upheld but classrooms, teaching methods, and new research have been given a more modern approach.
Christ is Our Keystone of Learning
Ad Fonte Academy, located near Prince William County, lives and breathes with hearts fully engaged with Christ our Savior. From the classrooms, teachers, facilities, and activities, Christ is our cornerstone. Learning God’s word and how it applies to our lives, families, and teachings provides a solid foundation for our students.
“You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul. And you shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and and when you rise up.” (Deuteronomy 11:18-19)
A public education setting typically does not provide the opportunity to let God’s word be a critical part of a child’s day. When your child is spending over 6 hours in a school setting it’s vital to be in an environment that encourages walking in Christ’s footprints.
Understanding Christ’s message to the world gives students the spiritual tools to make better decisions at home and school. Children are easily influenced by other beliefs in a public setting. We do encourage discussion and discovery, but without proper understanding of Christ’s work it can be easy for a child to become confused and manipulated in a public setting.
In addition, a public education doesn’t offer an opportunity for students to learn how to be servant leaders. Basic subjects are studied, but leadership skills are not a core skill in a public setting.
“The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.” (Luke 6:40)
