As a Christian parent my daughter’s spiritual educations is equally important as her academic education. While researching Christian schools to enroll my daughter in, I discovered the Washington, DC metro area provides Christian parents with a number of schools that provide a comprehensive academic and biblical program that nurtures the mind, body and spirit. Check out these links and schools.
The American Association of Christian Schools (AACS) provides a search engine that allows you to search by school, state, or city for Christian schools in your area. It also has a section on state laws for homeschooling. Visit http://www.aacs.org/ for more information.
