Why Choose an Independent School?

Things to Consider When Choosing the Right School for Your Family

Dear Brother or Sister in Christ,

As parents ourselves, we know the hard decisions parents must make when it comes to choosing the right path for their children's education. Regardless of whether those children are just entering school, or whether they are struggling in their current academic setting and the family is considering a change, we'd like to suggest that you make an appointment, and come look at what Rossville Christian Academy can offer your family.

For many parents, investing in an independent education is the choice they make, and there are good reasons why. A report from the U.S. Department of Education found that:


  • Independent schools often have smaller enrollments, smaller class sizes and lower student/teacher ratios than public schools.
  • Independent school students generally perform better than their counterparts in public schools on standardized testing.
  • Independent school students are more than public school students to complete a Bachelor's or advanced degree by their mid-20's.
  • Independent schools often have more demanding graduation requirements than do public schools. (to view the full report from the National Center for Education Statistics visit www.nces.ed.gov/programs/coe)
