It was a huge decision as to where our two daughters would be educated. We had presentations from the government schools where we found out that diversity and liberalism were the hallmarks. In interviewing Grace we found that diversity was assumed as God's plan (all in His image) and that abominations of the Bible were forbidden. It is a breath of fresh air as your children take their first steps on that straight and narrow road.

Open to different ways of learning. Well rounded school with plenty of extra curricular activities for children. A great school to be a part of.

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
