ACSI Schools: The Best Choice for Your Child

ACSI Schools: The Best Choice for Your Child

Calvary Christian Academy is the best choice for Western Maryland

A Christian education at an ACSI member school will help your child grow spiritually, academically, and culturally. In fact, the recent Cardus Education Survey and other education studies show that ACSI schools better develop the whole child than any other type of school.

How to share?

The purpose of starting this blog is to give me a place where I can share interesting articles and information that I often find in various placed on the internet. This blog will give me the opportunity to collect  and share really good articles that I read and have challenged me or something that may help others. Other blogs, magazine articles, Facebook links, and even Pintrest links.

My child didn't come with a manual. That is a funny statement but so many time I wish they did. I have two daughters that are unique and require that I treat them differently to meet their needs. There are some things that are common to the two of them and this article captures some of the similarities in both of them. Over Christmas break my oldest daughter invited me to watch a movie with her friends on evening. May not sound real special but to me it was! When my 21 year old daughter wants me to share some time with her and her friends, that is something I could not say no too. I hope this article challenges you like it did me.
