About New Christian Schools
For well over forty years, a powerful educational movement has been growing across the nation. With a desire to put Jesus at the centre of education and to build schools on a strong Biblical foundation, a wide range of churches and other Christian groups has been asking serious questions about the education that their children are receiving. Since the late 1970s and early 1980s, more than a hundred of these groups have taken the radical step of actually starting new schools where Christ is the centre of the educational process.
Although the movement has received very little financial backing from either the churches or the Government, it has seen tremendous fruit in the lives of the children and young people it has touched. This new generation of Christian schools is often referred to as the”new Christian schools” although some are now more than forty years old!
