School Reviews

5  
South Haven Christian School supplies Robertson County, TN, and surrounding areas with more than well-educated graduates: the students here are trained to be a light in a dark world. Both my sons got scholarship-worthy test scores on ACT/pre-ACT, but what good is a college scholarship if a student hasn`t yet learned how to live or why. To me, this is the greatest strength of this school. I pray the administration always keeps the main thing the main thing: that Jesus Christ is Lord, and only in the light of His gospel do any of us have hope for this life or the next.
