Christian Schools Information Night

All Saints Anglican Church, Friend Street, Amesbury, is hosting an information meeting Thursday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. about the value and importance of Christian schools and homeschooling. It will bring together members from multiple churches in the area and representatives of four local Christian schools. The meeting will be held in the lower church hall.

Christian schools afford an opportunity to combine education, faith, values and character in an integrated whole for grades K-12. Testimonies will be given from families from several local churches about what has been valuable to them for their children. Others will speak of their experience in home schooling.

Representatives from Classical Conversations Home Schooling Group and Portsmouth, Boxford, Bradford and Covenant Christian academies will be on hand to discuss the distinctives of each school. Free and open to the public.

Every week Poupko will interview a special guest and feature an “Ask the Rabbi” segment.
