Quality friendships are so important in life, especially in the life of a young person as they help shape who you become. Often in big communities, young people can struggle to make friends or fall into friendship with the wrong crowd. In small private education communities, students are in a more intimate classroom environment which gives them the opportunity to dig deeper into relationships with peers who they will remain in classes with for years to come.
Many families choose to enroll their children in private education because it aligns with their spiritual values. When spirituality is encouraged during the school day your kids have the opportunity to think deeply about what they believe and why. Then, the practice of spirituality gets woven into the fabric of their everyday lives.
The theme of small classrooms is consistently a benefit that families get from private education. When your child is one of a few students in each class they are better known and better challenged by their teachers. This means that teachers can help identify strong and weak points at which your child could dig deeper into their education. Digging into the subjects that they struggle with helps them become more resilient, and digging into the subjects they already excel in helps them flourish academically.
At St. Barnabas we’re passionate about students physical health. For that reason, we invest in fresh and healthy lunches and have a large variety of athletic opportunities available each semester. We want your child, whether they are a natural athlete or the artsy type, to dig into physical activity and develop the habits that keep their bodies healthy for years to come.
The intimate community found in a private school is an optimal environment for students to learn to dig deep into the different parts of their lives. When your children dig deep into relationships and school at a young age, they learn the skill of digging deep that they can transfer into the rest of their lives.
