Major Description

The Christian Education major is designed for students who desire to teach elementary children in a Christian day school or to teach their own children in a home school environment. The major has been designed to teach children from a biblical worldview and to apply all principles of knowledge and learning to every area of life. Christian schools recognize that God gave authority and responsibility for raising and teaching children to parents, not to schools. When children are taught well and consistently by parents, churches, and schools, good fruit is often borne in the lives of students.
