Does the Christian boarding school you have enrolled your teen have a plan to help our teen excel? Have you really looked at all they offer (or even what they do not offer)? There is life after school for the teen. Have you taken this into consideration when it comes to preparing the way for them? Have you prepared them for the reality that is set before them in their life walk?
All viable questions that, we as parents, should have in the forefront of our minds. Today’s society has woven such a tangled web that our teens can easily be "sucked" in to the world’s concept of what life is supposed to be, including many Christian boarding schools. Be sure that you see their agenda from the get-go. We, as Christian parents, cannot assume that because "Christian" is in their name that they are able to prepare the teen to be "in the world" instead of being "of the world". Do your research and know that the foundations that are presented to the teen are founded in God’s Word AND that there is a program to assist them (the teen) to stay on track for a fruitful and positive life. At Zion Educatuinal Systems, the leadership program goes hand-in-hand with the fully accredited academics that are offered. The leadership program is based on God’s blueprint that He so well planned within His word and it comes to fruition through the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus . . . Jesus is the ONLY answer for today’s Christian teen and at ZES , it is taught, exemplified and reiterated in all phases of the program.
Do your homework, be sure that your teen will come out of a Christian boarding school with values that they can carry forth throughout their lives.
