How Private School Benefits High Schoolers

Monday, 05 September 2022 15:53

High school is one of the most exciting and challenging times in a young person’s life. It is the season when many students will begin to make their faith their own and begin to understand better how God is working in their lives. At the same time, they will be developing lifelong friendships, finding and benefiting from mentorship and thinking more about their futures. 

Being the parent of a high schooler is beautiful and nerve-wracking. On the one hand, you get to see many of the lessons you’ve instilled in your children finally bear fruit. On the other hand, it can be scary to feel like you’re taking your hands off the wheel and letting them do the steering (literally and figuratively). 

Attending a private high school can help ensure your teenagers get the most support possible as they approach the last few years before adulthood.

High school is one of the most challenging and rewarding seasons for parents and students. From grades nine to twelve, you will see your teenager grow and mature into a young adult. 

All of the time and energy you’ve invested in instilling lessons that build character will come to fruition. They will come into their own and begin to make valuable contributions to their community and the world. 

It is a busy time with school, athletics, clubs, friends, relationships, and everything else that happens during high school. However, it is vital to make sure your teenager is preparing for the future. Whether it’s college, gap year missions, or something else, we want to help make sure you are equipped to guide them through high school while looking forward to what’s next. 

One of the most exciting and nerve-wracking days of the year is the first day of school. On the one hand, kids are excited to meet their new teachers and make new friends. They might look forward to a new schedule, getting a locker, starting new sports, and returning to their favorite extracurricular activities. On the other hand, they might be nervous about studying new subjects, fitting in, and other challenges. 

The nerves associated with the first day of school may be heightened by starting at a completely new school and phase of education. Starting sixth grade is a big deal. It’s the beginning of middle school. 

When considering a school, we know that parents want the best for their children. Each child is different, and each age group has different necessities. 

As children develop, they go through different stages where different things become more important to them than other things. They’re changing and growing, and that means their needs are changing and growing as well.

If you are debating between public or private school for your elementary or middle school-aged child, we have seen firsthand the benefits that our students have had here at a Christian private school.
