Christian Schools: How to Choose?

 It's strange, but from time-to-time I'm stopped on the street or approached in a coffee shop by parents of school age children and questioned about Christian schooling. Essentially the question is, Of the Christian schools in the area, or colleges, which would you, suggest I consider?" Now, that seems innocent enough, but not to me.

Too often this chance encounter and query revolves around tuition or who sends their kids to a specific school. While these are reasonable questions and will help in making a decision, they miss the more significant points which strike at the heart of an avowedly Christian education.
