Welcome to my
little piece of Academia on the Internet for
Christian educators! Christian Education is very
important to me and my wife, who has taught for
the past 17 years.
- I hope to
expand this site to provide YOU the help that you
will need to begin or continue to take the
rightful responsibility to see that your child(ren)
are given the best education they can receive.
Your ideas are appreciated! Click

- I have
purposed to keep this site as
Christian, traditional and
as conservative as possible, while realizing that
there are still some good solid academic
resources out there also.
- In 1975,
along with a large number of Christians in the
Greater Brattleboro Area, I helped to found
Christian Heritage School,
Inc. in Brattleboro.
- It was
evident at that time that the public and some
parochial schools were not meeting the standards
academically or ethically. That trend has
- I served on
the Board of Directors faithfully for the
following 20 years, Head mastered, taught occasionally and
Coached for 12 years. I left the Board in 1996
and returned from 1999 until 2002.
- During that
period I served on a number of educational
committees and boards, attended conferences each
year and served on the Christian Schools of
Vermont, Inc. Board.
- If you are
considering Home Schooling or sending your child(ren)
to a Christian School please - I challenge you
to do it for the right reasons. Do NOT
Christian Education is a conviction of the
Lord that your child(ren) must be taught in a
Christian manner and environment. Be prepared to
back that up!
- Your child(ren)
belong to the Lord first, then, secondly,
to you and you are entrusted by Him to care for
and be responsible for them. (Psalm 127:3)
- The Lord
also entrusted you first to provide for
their education. That's where Christian Education
you may choose to Home School, send them
to a Christian Day School, or a Boarding School.
If you do not Home School, you need to find a
Christian School that you can be assured
that what you have instilled or want instilled in
your child(ren) will not be undone.
- While you
will not have a problem with a vast majority
of Christian Schools, there are those who are
Christian in name only. They may have had a good
start at their inception, but lost it as they
watered down and sorely compromised their
closely at their Constitution. Look at their Philosophy of Christian Education, Statement of
Purpose, Statement of Faith, and By-Laws.
Unfortunately, there are schools who are NOT
following what they present themselves as
believing in. Lack of the aforementioned can
be a good indicator of what they really stand for.
WAY, it is still YOU who is
responsible for the education they do or do
not receive! The same applies if you play
school while home schooling.
Education is not an alternative
- Nor, is it
to be looked at as a reform school were
you send your child(ren) when you have lost
control of them.
