I’m looking for some ideas of Christian schools to check out. My son is finishing his sophomore year of high school this year and we are starting to look into college choices. He has one state school (non-religous of course) on his list, however I would really prefer a Christian college if possible, and I think he would be happier at one too.
We are looking for a noncompetitive, low-key kind of place. His gpa is hovering around 3.0 (he’s trying to get it up), and his test scores will probably not be incredibly high either, though he will be taking a SAT/ACT class this summer to try to improve his scores. His areas of interest are Music and Theater, and he is really gifted in these classes; he also does well in English and Social Studies, so a liberal arts curriculum will be good for him. He has one sport, but he’s not really a competitive athlete so he won’t get any athletic scholarships.
Overall he is a very laid back, humble, incredibly sweet and kind young man, who loves to play music. He does best and is happiest in a caring, relaxed environment, definitely not a competitive, prestigious environment.
We are on the west coast, but would look at schools anywhere. Finances are a big deal for us and he won’t have a stellar academic or athletic resume, so I’m not sure about any scholarships. We are definitely looking for schools that are affordable. I think he would prefer a more casual Christian culture versus a super religious school, but we would be willing to look at both.
