This also leads to the average kid having more of a relationship with God than the average kid at a public school. This is just my opinion but does this not seem reasonable that the kid exposed more would be more likely to have God in their life more?
My feelings on them are positive. I think it is nice that they can offer an environment with smaller classes while still having the advantages of being in a bigger city. I personal am glad I attended one, and will most likely send my kids to one. I think it's a better alternative than the large public schools (talking about class A schools) that are halfways a circus with that many kids.
Also, Schwab, I would say that some private schools are run cheaper than public schools. On average, it costs $7,000 to send a kid to public school. There are private schools that are more than that, and there are some that are less than that. Do donations get big? Maybe. I know Shanley gets a lot of money from donors. That is also why the school looks the way it does. People can donate to public schools too, no? So I don't really think that's a fair argument to use.

I teach at a small public school that has to make a team out of whoever comes out for basketball in our small town. These schools that are based in Class A towns get the athletes that don't have the skills the Class A schools are looking for so they attend a church school so they can play varsity. These athletes also have Class A town amenities like YMCA, gyms, personal trainer programs in their town when the small schools have to drive a great distance to use these types of facilities. I have known throughout my life time at least a few siblings that one has attended the Class A school and the other has attended the church school seems weird to me you would want your children going to different schools. If its about the quality of education then why wouldn't you want both of your children receiving the "so called" higher education at the church school?

Being able to choose in a big town the school you want to attend is the Class A advantage. Students who attend smaller schools don't have the opportunity to attend another school in their town if their parents get divorced. These are Class A towns but not Minneapolis drive time or location near the school isn't a factor.
