"Trust in the Lord with your whole heart and lean not on your own understanding..." - Proverbs 3:5
For many families, kindergarten is the first big step in your child’s educational future. This is an exciting and precious time in the life of your family and nothing makes it better than returning home to a child who has loved their day of school. But not all children take a liking to school from day one, and some children need encouragement and support from mom and dad to really begin to enjoy learning.
You want nothing less than the best for your children, and to you that might mean investing in a private education. Investing in private school may seem like a luxury these days, but you don’t have to give up on the idea entirely. If the price tag on private school seems too high for your budget, consider the following.

In 2017 Emery Latchaw graduated from St. Barnabas. It was at St. Barnabas that two significant things happened in his life. Not only did Emery discover his love for the sciences at St. Barnabas, but he met Mr. Joseph, his 8th grade science teacher. The impact that teachers have on students’ learning and interests are often discussed, and in Emery’s case, it seems to be evident that his appreciation for Mr. Joseph, and his passion for science run parallel. Not only has Mr. Joseph supported Emery in his education, but he has encouraged Emery to attend wildlife camp and pursue his dreams. Emery can easily recall the many experiments that St. Barnabas’ science program offered. “We had a garden where I grew broccoli and brussel sprouts. Every day, we would go to the garden and later we would write a blog about it. It was a lot of fun!”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! As we wind down to the end of the year, you and your children will become more and more inundated with Christmas. And in the midst of all of that holiday joy, it’s easy to forget the real reason we celebrate this holiday. And the more you forget the purpose for all of this joy and celebration the less exposure your children get to the true magic of Christmas.
