Private School Education Proves To Be Highly Beneficial.

One of the accepted benefits of private school is that they provide exceptional and challenging educational experiences. Private school students constantly score top marks on standardized tests and college entrance exams, and many schools have close to a 100 percent rate of students attending their university of choice.

Bracken Christian School is one of those private schools providing excellent education for K4-12th grade. All students benefit from a comprehensive, rigorous curriculum supplemented by individualized offerings and personal attention, all imparted in keeping with a Biblical world view, where Christ and His teachings are at the center of everything.

Parental involvement
Bracken Christian’s academic program for Elementary offers Music, Spanish (beginning in Pre-K), Art, Computer Science and Phonics as well as academic competitions such as Math Olympics, Speech Meet, and Spelling Bee. Their middle school and high school offers academic competitions as well as dual credit courses and unique classes for their seniors such as Anatomy/Physiology Cadaver Lab and EMT/First Responder Certifications. Bracken Christian also has an excellent athletic program where their athletes have excelled and have earned 10 TAPPS State Championships in Football, Volleyball, Basketball and Cross-Country. 

Private schools are built around open communication between parents and administration, and they make it a priority to involve parents in the community. From frequent parent-teacher meetings and the participation of parent committees in fundraising initiatives, families become an integral part of the child’s education.

students, we are very pleased with our kids’ education.
We can see both a knowledge and spiritual
growth in each one of them. We are blessed
to have the opportunity to send them to Bracken.

A safe environment
Private schools have reputations for maintaining high standards for discipline and respect. Lower staff-to-student ratios allow for more effective observation and control of school grounds. The strong sense of community found in private schools also discourages dangerous behavior. In the Fraser Institute study, around 72 percent of parents surveyed with children in the private school system strongly agreed that their school was safe, which greatly improves the quality of the child’s educational experience and achievement. The discipline they learn also improves their rates for success in post-secondary education, when they are in control of their class attendance and achievement.

Extracurricular activities

While academics remain the priority for most private schools, many also place a strong focus on a well-rounded education and encourage participation in extracurricular activities such as sports, music, arts, or clubs. This involvement helps stimulate students in their studies, as noted in a study at Stanford University that found that students involved in the arts are more motivated to learn and are three times more likely to win a school attendance award. Brian Crerand, whose three kids attend Bracken Christian School, says that sport “has become part of their daily life. It has made them more focused. All three are doing very well academically.” Extracurricular activities can provide a much-needed break from the stresses of academics, while developing skills and engaging in valuable social situations.
