What is the Value of a Christian Education?

Providing the Tools to Make the Right Choice

Our children will spend almost 16,000 hours in school from Kindergarten through 12th grade. During that same timeframe, our children have the potential to be in church 676 hours if they attend one hour every week for 13 years. When you look at the time spent in each of these areas, you will quickly realize the impact that education has on a child. Our children are spending more time each day with their teachers when they are awake than with us as their parents.

Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil. -C. S. Lewis

Logos Academy - Affordable Christian School

Jesus said in Luke 6:40 that “the student will become like the teacher.” 16,000 hours of education will have a considerable impact on your child and the kind of person they will become. Education will help define your child’s worldview. Martin Luther made an incredible statement about education long before our country took prayer out of school. Luther declared:

I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth.

If we are to raise Godly kids, a Christian education will play a major role in that pursuit. My wife, Karen, and I made the commitment when our first child was born to provide our children with a Christian education and to ensure that our children would be daily exposed to a Biblical worldview.

I am convinced that it is important that we as parents intentionally plan to give our kids a Christian education and trust God that it will indeed be the right way to go. Scripture confirms that education with the Bible as its source of truth will make a difference in your child’s life.

One such promise is found in Isaiah 55:11:

So shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; It shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

My prayer has always been that the truth of this verse would be a reality for my children because I have centered their education on the Bible. As the parent of children who are grown, I have been blessed to see the Word prosper in the lives of my kids. From this blessing, I can tell you today that providing a Christian education for my children has been the single greatest investment of my life.

At Logos Academy, we seek daily to partner with you our parents in providing a distinctive Biblical education to your children. We appreciate the financial sacrifice you make to provide a Christian education for your kids and we are committed to working hard each day to honor that sacrifice.

We treasure our families and the community of Logos Academy!

    Parental Partnering Essential for a Christian Education

    The Role of Parents in Their Children’s Christian Education

    At Logos Academy, we believe that God has designed the home as the ideal environment in which to train children. Further, God intends parents to be the primary agents in training their children. Schools should exist simply to assist parents in fulfilling that responsibility. The problem is that most schools simply occupy too much of the child’s time. By age eighteen most students will have spent most of their waking hours for the last thirteen years away from their homes in school or school-related activities. Yet most people who come to Christ do so by age eighteen—the very years that are best spent at home, where parents can teach their children their values.

    God commanded the Israelites,

    “These words which I have commanded you today shall be upon your heart. And you shall impress them deeply on your children and shall speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise (Deut. 6:6-7).”

    In all its courses the Logos Academy seeks to involve parents actively in their child’s education. We do this by teaching less than five days per week and assigning work to be done at home under the parent’s supervision. This parent partnering is not only more efficient, allowing the student much more time at home, but also draws the parent actively into the educational process. The Academy exists to assist, not to replace, parents in fulfilling their responsibility to train their children.

    The question rises as to whether teaching less than five days per week is adequate academically. In a word, it is. We provide a college preparatory curriculum. A student who enrolls full time will complete twenty-four of the twenty-six credits required for the Texas Education Agency’s Recommended High School Program. (The only credits that the Academy does not provide are one credit of physical education and one credit of fine arts, which we leave to the parent’s discretion.) We believe in excellence in education.

    Logos Academy: Offering Quality & Affordable Christian Education

    Logos Academy is a Christian school supporting home-centered, college preparatory education majoring in the Bible and theology. A major drawback to most Christian schools is that they are simply too expensive. We make Christian education affordable and therefore accessible to most Christian families.

    By parent partnering we not only involve parents actively in their children’s education, but also keep our costs to a minimum. Our goal is to teach the Bible and theology to as many students as possible. We do this by making education affordable.

      Biblical Emphasis in a Christian Education

      Teaching the Relationship Between God and Man

      The highest pursuit of the Christian’s mind is to think the thoughts of God. Since academic training is designed to develop one’s understanding, academic training for the Christian should focus on teaching who God is and how man should live under His authority. As Solomon summarized,

      “Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecc. 12:13b).

      Logos Academy - Affordable Christian School

      Of all academic disciplines, biblical and theological studies alone pursue this goal, since they alone study the Creator rather than the creation. Therefore they are the queen of the sciences, which Logos Academy seeks to make the heart of its curriculum. To this end, all graduates of the Academy will have spent three years studying every chapter of the Bible, will have read the entire Bible and will have memorized select passages. They will have spent another three years studying systematic theology topics and will have studied two years of New Testament Greek. Our goal is to make all of our students competent in biblical and theological studies.

      The Logos Academy recognizes that mastering any academic discipline requires specialized training. This need is quite apparent in biblical and theological studies, since the Christian faith rests wholly on a body of ancient literature, our Bible, which is far removed linguistically, culturally, chronologically and geographically from twenty-first century America. One need only thumb through the Greek New Testament to realize that its authors wrote in a language and a culture very different from ours. It is because of this gap that Christianity has always been a religion of education. Wherever the gospel has spread, there has been the need that its recipients be trained in the Bible formally in order to understand, live and teach its truth faithfully and to pass this heritage on to their children. Logos Academy exists to meet that need.
