While many students can thrive in public schools, others do not fare so well and could benefit from more personalized instruction in a different school environment. If you are wondering whether private school is right for your child, we encourage you to keep reading to learn how to make that call.
Our team at Renaissance Classical Christian Academy has extensive experience in education, and we can help you figure out whether private school is the right environment for your child.
- Individual Attention- If you feel that your child is not receiving enough one-on-one attention or support from their instructors, we strongly encourage you to consider enrolling your child in private school. Most private schools, including ours, maintain a lower ratio of students to teachers, meaning your child’s teacher will have more time to devote to them individually.
- Academic Standards- Another sign that you should consider enrolling your child in private school is a lack of educational rigor in their public-school curriculum. If your child is coasting through their studies without being pushed to realize their full potential, a private school may be just the thing you need to give them the motivation to improve. Private schools such as ours typically offer more rigorous curricula than are offered at most public institutions.
- Values- A third thing to consider when choosing whether to enroll your child in public or private school is what values you want their education to teach and model for them. Specifically, if you want to raise your children with strong Christian values, you should consider enrolling them in a private Christian school where the staff will reinforce those values every day.
