Repost: Christian Colleges

This has been published before but since there are new visitors and the information is still relevant, it is being reposted for those who missed the post the first time round.

 

People attend college to attain particular skills for a future profession.

If you are looking for industry-type professions, you might consider looking at MikeRoweWorks.

Community colleges are a place to gain skills at a lesser cost than a four-year college.

There are two aspects to community colleges.

Some offer graduation in hands-on professions, such as welding, auto mechanics,  and computer graphics.

Some offer the initial lower level courses, also known as the basics or initial courses required for a four-year degree.  If the first two years are taken at a community college, it may be possible to save a lot of money compared to attending all four years at a larger college or university.

It is possible to save money if you have a wise strategy.

For someone planning on ultimately attending a four-year college, by completing the first two years at a community college, it may be possible to save a significant amount of money.

Another strategy to save money is to take dual credit courses in high school.   These courses count towards college credits.

Take dual credit courses in high school.  Take community college courses.  CLEP out where you can.  Mix up the strategies to do as much, get as far as you can concerning the degree you want for as little money as possible.  Some colleges now offer evaluations of life experience that can may turn into a certain number of credit hours.  You have to check with different educational institutions to find out whether they do this or not.    It is worth exploring the different possibilities to find a way that will work for your situation.

CLEP-ing out of tests is a possibility.  There are other tests besides the CLEP test as well.  You need to check with those colleges/universities you are considering to find out the possibilities that they offer.

Some universities offer the ability to create a degree where life experience counts.  You tailor the degree towards gaining the specific extra training you need.

Beyond saving money and getting through a college, it is important to pick the right college or university, not just in terms of a major, but also for character development.

In today’s world,  many secular colleges and universities teach things like marxism or  transgenderism.

If a student ends up in a class like that, or with a teacher of that ilk, it might not be possible to get a passing grade unless the student pleases the teacher with papers that harmonize with the teacher’s philosophy.

Students need to be able to live according to their conscience and not write papers contrary to their conscience.

Here are some Christian Colleges and Universities that offer many different majors.

The school below is a Bible College.  However, it does have partnerships with some four-year schools so it is possible to attend the Bible College, earn some credits, and then finish a four-year degree through certain schools in partnership with the Bible College.  Or, a person may go to the Bible College and then go on into the ministry.  It is important to check out what they have for more details rather than relying on this simple summary.  There are various pathways of study through this school, so check the details.

Something that is newer on the horizon is training through apprenticeships; this is an up-and-coming option. Apprenticeships or on-the-job training have been around before, but seem to be making a comeback.   Since this is something new that seems to be re-emerging, it is necessary to search and see where things currently stand in fields of interest.

The bottom line is that there may be more than one way to get the training you need for the field of work you desire to enter.

Psalm 51:1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

Why Some People are Against Home Schooling

Whether it is through private or public schooling, the majority of people in American society have attended regular school. Those same people tend to be against home schooling. The people who take a position against home schooling do so for many different reasons.

People who are against home schooling cite that regular schools give children the opportunity to make friends, and join school clubs.  This gives them the opportunity for more social interaction.  The argument against this is that this is a changing world.  School acquaintances may have a broken home life and be involved in drugs or worse.  Being social for the sake of being social alone is not a valid reason.

Plus, there are home school clubs in some communities.  These groups plan group activities for children so there can be social interaction there.  In addition, many times there are several siblings being home schooled.  Growing up together teaches them to be friends for life.

People who are against home schooling argue that parents cannot provide their children with the same level of academic stability and opportunity. Parents who home school their children have to rely upon either their own planned curriculums, or curriculums that they find.  Again, there are many resources to choose from.  Home school is not a new phenomena.  There are home school events where a parent can learn about curriculums and the many options available to those who home school.

Today, public school has degerated.  With common core math, which many parents are unhappy with, and revisionist history that is teaching socialism, communism, CRT,  transgen or other things parents might object to as more incentive to find a good curriculum and have home school.

There are far more materials available to home schoolers than those who have objections realize.  Pureflix offers home school materials, including documentaries.  Wallbuilders has excellent historical material.  Hillsdale College does as well.  The Rush Revere series is a good series for the children to read.

While socialization factors are perhaps the most prevalent reason why some people are against home schooling, one cannot deny that, like it or not, home schooling is a choice made on the part of the parents for children.  After all, it takes a lot of effort and no parent does it unless he or she wants the child to succeed.

In the end, it has been true that those who resist home school may continue to resist even after the children graduate, do well, open businesses and succeed.  Some people just are stuck on the narrative they have learned that public school is best, even though it currently has some serious problems.  So it does not pay to rely on someone else’s opinion, as it may be a misguided negative opinion about home school.  Many, many home school children have graduated and gone on to get higher degrees and been successful.
