Last question-- I promise! I am wondering if anyone here has information on the Christian schools in the area, specifically the Grand Rapids Christian school system and Ada Christian School. We sent in a request for information and will be seeking part time enrollment (art classes, sports, etc.). I was wondering if anyone knows something about them that isn't posted on the website: cliquey families? cliquey students? competitive parents? do they all attend the same school? how are the academics? how strong is the Christian influence?

Thanks very much for all your help on all my posts. I promise this is my last one!

Put your kid in a public school and experience the world first hand. He or she will be a stronger Christian in the end.

Plus you save money : )

Oh, c'mon... a lot of the Christian schools around Grand Rapids are really good. Great education, nice people. I don't think the OP was looking to be talked into a different educational philosophy.

I wish I could help you OP, but I don't really know the answers to your specific questions. Just that I know a few people who have very good experiences with Christian schools around GR, including GR Christian High.

A good majority of people I see that have come out of Christian High or South Christian either do not believe in God anymore or are very luke warm. I hear teenage pregnancy is an issue at South. The public schools in GR are awesome... Forest Hills, Northview, EGR, Rockford... and they all have a good chunk of solid Christians. I have gone to public and private school... The most I was on fire for God was when I was in a public school.

My 4 kids go to Ada Christian. We love it. I know lots of people who go to Grand Rapids Christian and Northpointe Christian. I would be happy to tell you more. We get financial assistance, so families from all econimic groups attend.
