As a Christian parent, I would really love to see my son attend a Christian college such as Taylor, Grove City, or Wheaton. That was the plan but it does appear almost certain that my son will not apply to any Christian schools because of his extreme stengths in math and physics. I have very mixed feelings about it. I know there are many good strong orthodox support groups on various campuses but I also know there are weaker support groups and certainly some extremely erroneous and bad teaching at secular schools as they try to sway our Christian kids to abandon their beliefs.
I was very delighted to hear of Christian professors on the campus of Harvey Mudd and Princeton but they are definitely secular campuses. I also feel that my son will be missing out on some amazing courses in theology, philosophy, and religion from a Christian perspective by not attending a Christian college.
Yet, he has been gifted in areas that are best developed at a secular school....and I know some very strong Christians attend secular schools.
I think I need encouragement that we're making the right choice. When the math prof at Grove City told my son to look at secular colleges because Christian colleges didn't offer enough for him academically, that's when it became clear that he most likely wouldn't be attending a Christian college.
