Overview

Protestant evangelical Christian schools are the fastest-growing segment of American private school education. Despite their notable individual autonomy, these schools have retained a consistent belief system and mission over several decades. Private religious schools can be traced to our nation's earliest origins. Why is it that these unique educational institutions arose in twentieth-century America and have continued to thrive?

A Christian America Restored seeks to delve into the beginnings of private Christian schools and discovers that while they are relatively new on the educational landscape of America, their roots are actually quite deep, connecting with the ongoing dreams of our nation's conservative evangelicals.
