I feel that a Christian education, one that stays in the Bible to answer Biblical and life questions, is the best education a child can get! An education like this starts when the child is read to, like my mother did with me, and continues with my children. Even though I went to private and public schools for my secular education, I attended Southwestern Christian College in Terrell, TX, one of the best Christian colleges in America! 

The teachers are the best, and the curriculum is not Bible-based, it is Bible period! I am now attending the Jamaica School of Preaching and Biblical Studies, along with my husband. He's an aspiring preacher, and my Biblical knowledge has grown by leaps and bounds. A lot of our friends are the products of SwCC and other Christian colleges around the country, and they have gone on to lead exemplary lives for Christ. Many are well known and respected preachers, and there are doctors, lawyers, truck drivers, FedEx employees, phone company workers, etc.

Sending your child to any one of the colleges and universities affiliated with the church of Christ is the best investment and education your child can get.
