Christian schools are private schools that are administered by Christian organizations, oftentimes offering religious-centered education. It is the common belief that these schools are not eligible to receive grants due to their religious orientation. However, their academic activities made them eligible to receive grants from different foundations. In addition, their unique mission of providing children with high quality of education that is high in spiritual values is not lost on foundations that offer assistance to capital improvement, scholarship, and innovative special programs.
