After attending High School at Turlock Christian for 3 years, I can attest to some of the great things this school has done for my life. Even though I transferred in as a sophomore, I felt welcomed by the students and have made many close friends throughout my high school career. I am currently a college freshman, who entered college with 9 units of AP and Dual Credit. Had I been at Turlock Christian for 4 years, I would have had more. I was involved in a variety of extracurriculars, including ASB, FFA, Theatre, Cross Country, Basketball, Soccer, and Track. I also had the opportunity to serve on international mission trips over the summer in the Dominican Republic and during spring break in Greece. The small classroom sizes enabled me to better connect with my teachers and peers, and get specialized one on one time. The curriculum takes special care to integrate biblical teachings, enriching my faith through interdisciplinary classes, such as biology and math. The teachers and administration at this school are as equally invested in my education as I am and have inspired me to become a teacher myself. I was accepted to UCLA, Cal Poly SLO, and Concordia University Irvine. My education at Turlock Christian gave me all of the tools I needed to succeed at college, and I am grateful for the opportunities they provided.

I moved to Turlock from the Bay Area just over 2 years ago, and enrolled my kids in Turlock Christian Schools. My boys went to private Christian schools in San Jose before coming here. After about a couple of weeks they adjusted well and now absolutely love the schools. The teachers are great and really care about the students. The schools have a family feel and we were welcomed so wonderfully. Coming from the Bay Area, Turlock Christian exceeded my expectations and I am a happy parent.

We are a new family to the school and are very happy with what we are finding. Both my sons have been made to feel right at home by the other students which was a big concern of mine. The teachers have been wonderful and I feel much better about our relocation now that my children have found a school that they feel comfortable in right away.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
