With a new school year approaching, I’ve noticed that now more than ever Christian parents are seeking more from their children’s schools. Families have faced a myriad of challenges when it comes to education over the last few years, leaving many with feelings of frustration and uncertainty.  
 
A recent study by Stride, Inc., revealed that 66 percent of Christian parents are concerned about the quality of education their children are receiving, and nearly half of Christian parents—that is, 43 percent—say that public education does not reflect their personal values. 
 
Being in the education field for more than 20 years and seeing the recent uproar over the current state of education, I understand these parents’ concerns. When it comes to children, we need education options that provide a world-class learning experience—without compromising Christian values. 
 
That’s why in 2021, I developed Faith Academics and launched a network of private online Christian schools under the FaithPrep brand, including FaithPrep Academy. FaithPrep helps students pursue excellence, develop Christian character, and discover their gifts, talents, and purpose to follow God's calling in life. 
 
Online learning does cause some parents concern, such as learning loss and their child’s sense of community and socialization. For many parents, students, and even teachers, the COVID-19 pandemic was their first experience with online education. However, this quick shift to the virtual world did not accurately portray what real, proven, virtual education looks like.  
 
Stride, Inc., a two-decade online education provider, uses a comprehensive learning platform for students (the company has served over two million students and has a parent satisfaction rate of 80 percent).
 
Faith Prep and Stride have partnered to provide students with a full-time K-12 school program that offers faith-based online learning education with a focus on core character building through instruction by Christian teachers. Students have access to a full course load across the core subjects of math, science, English/language arts, and social sciences, as well as career-oriented pathways and options to earn college credit. 
 
I’m involved in various local and international ministries, so I understand the value of community and being surrounded by people who align with your beliefs. FaithPrep students will connect with Christian teachers during live instructional sessions and will work with fellow students in small-group activities, all-class assignments, hands-on projects, and more.
 
Online school offers flexibility, which means students can customize their schedule around any required live class sessions and pursue other opportunities and interests outside of school, like church groups, music, sports, and more. Students currently utilizing Stride’s online learning platform have thrived in their education, while pursuing a music career, participating in cooking competitions, and chasing Olympic dreams.
 
As summer ends and parents consider their children’s options, they can explore best-in-class online education options rooted in a mission to develop the next generation of Christ-minded servant learners. FaithPrep Academy offers these opportunities. Learn more.
