what is christian educationWestern North Carolina is among the most beautiful places to live in North Carolina. A satellite town to nearby Asheville, Waynesville is the perfect place to live and raise a family within the Asheville metropolitan area. There is no shortage of outdoor activities, parks, and restaurants for children and adults to enjoy in Haywood County. The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad is a popular attraction less than an hour from downtown Waynesville.

It is no wonder people are choosing Waynesville and Lake Junaluska when moving to the area. Nevertheless, parents in Waynesville and throughout Haywood County wrestle with whether to send their children to public, charter, or private Christian Schools. For those weighing their options, we want to quickly define Christian Education.

What is Christian Education?

The mission of Haywood Christian Academy is to develop students into Christian leaders by providing an excellent educational experience on a foundation of Biblical truth. Christian education is rooted in the truth of the Bible as the foundation of all knowledge, but study is not limited to Scripture. Our teachers help students develop a Biblical worldview through which they can influence their academic experience.

Christian education benefits students in several ways, including but not limited to:

  • Students are regularly presented with the Gospel and the love of Christ
  • Students are placed in smaller classes than public school
  • Students are discipled by their teachers
  • Students are educated in an environment of excellence
  • Students are presented ministry opportunities
  • Students are challenged to share their faith in their communities
  • Students are granted the tools to become Christian leaders
  • Students are prepared for college and employment
