Abundant Grace Christian Academy believes that faith in Christ and obedience to the Holy Spirit and the Word of God are the foundational aspects of parenting. In terms of public, private, or home schooling, they believe that there is no right or wrong way to educate your children, as long as you are obedient to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Each home is an independent “school”. The parents, with God’s help, are the school staff.
