I am looking for a Christian School in the Metroplex. Ideally here is what I am looking for: I prefer a larger school because they are able to offer more programs, like strings. I want a school that is bible based but non denominational and not extremely evangelical. I want a school that is truly a Christian school - not just in name. I want a school that reinforces Christian values throughout schoolday. I want a school that has control over the students - not a bunch of behavior problems. I want a school that is in a nice area with homes available in the upper 200s. I want the school to be on the outskirts of the city w/easy accessability. I want a school that resembles the top notch independent schools without the snootiness. What school, in your opinion, comes closest to fulfilling these criteria?

Hi
We just moved here last May and went thru checking out a bunch of Christian schools ourselves. Likewise, we wanted a school that reinforced Christian values and had concerns about "snootiness" that comes sometimes with private schools.
We found a school in Keller call Messiah Lutheran Classic Academy (www.mlgs.org) If you are not familar with classical curriculum they give a good summary about it on the web site. They are Lutheran, but 55 % or so of the students are not from the church. We are selves do not come from a Lutheran background and find them to be a very Christ centered group of people. You mentioned "strings" is that meaning musical? They have a strong musical curriculum as in 1-6th they learn piano and upper grades they pick a string instrument to play. The school is still young and growing. A new building was built last spring and now they have doubled in size to 100+ students.
Keller area is one of the nice growing areas of Fort Worth and has homes in that price range. There are also 2 or 3 other schools in the area that I might be able to get info on if the above is not what you'd be looking for.
One last thing about the school, I was worried that because of "classic" in the name, the school would be "elitist". It is far from that they don't require testing before you enter, they feel all God's children should be able to get a Christian Education. Also my kids came from a regular type of school and have been doing just fine at this school, and in fact are loving it!!

Liberty Christian School in the Denton area might be worth checking into.
Denton is a suburb of the Metroplex, north of Dallas & FtWorth, along I-35.

I'm afraid that Liberty might exceed your limits on the snootiness meter, based on my exposure to the campus. They also have chapel about once a month, not once a day or once a week like some other schools.

Default Input on Christian School

I work closely with my own private christian school and also help work the Christian school fairs.

with the criteria you mentioned, you might want to consider CORAM DEO. It is rigorous, but very conservative...and extremely reasonable in price. They have several campuses around Dallas.

You might also consider MCKINNEY CHRISTIAN ACADEMY. This is a GREAT school in my opinion...nice campus, humble attitude, but it was started by the person who started Prestonwood...and you know how much that has grown.

Does anyone know anything about Clay Academy? I was told that this is a good Christian school. Is it really a good school and is anyone familiar with the Christian teachings and curriculum?

Hi,

I'll be new to Texas in a few months and I would like to know where would be the best area to raise children under 5. I prefer to have them enrolled in a Christian school that teaches the Word, is ACSI accredited, small classroom sizes and not too 'elite' as someone indicated previously. Is Plano, Frisco and Carrollton really as good as I've been hearing?

Faith Christian in Grapevine has approx. 600 students PK-12th and Fort Worth Christian in North Richland Hills has over 700 students PK-12th with a Strings program. Both in very conveniently located suburbs with NRH probably being more in the housing price range you're looking for.
