The Herzog Foundation announced today that it will grant $2,315,910 to propel the growth at six Christian schools in Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, and Washington, D.C.
This announcement comes as Christian schools around the nation see continued growth in enrollment. According to a recent study, eight out of 10 Christian school leaders say demand for Christian education is increasing in their area, and the same number report their enrollment has grown since the pandemic. As demand for Christian education grows, schools need resources to open and increase their capacity. The Herzog Foundation is proud to help the following schools in this endeavor:
- Hebron Christian Academy (Dacula, GA)
- Answers Academy (Hebron, KY)
- Capitol Hill Christian Academy (Washington, D.C.)
- Christian Fellowship School (Columbia, MO)
- Park Christian School (Moorhead, MN)
- Veritas Christian Academy (Wayland, MA)
All six schools designated to receive a Herzog Foundation grant in 2023 will significantly increase their capacity for new students. The school with the highest potential for growth is Capitol Hill Christian Academy as the only school of its kind in Washington D.C.’s largest residential neighborhood.
“This year, we identified six schools in six communities where demand for Christian education is particularly strong,” said Herzog Foundation President Darrell Jones. “From Capitol Hill to rural Kentucky, more families than ever before are seeking out an education rooted in Christ. Our 2023 grantees will ensure that these families have access to the high-quality, Christian education they desire.”
The Herzog Foundation’s founder and namesake, Stan Herzog, had a vision to transform and increase the enrollment of Christian schools nationwide. This vision is made possible through granting and training events. For more information on the Herzog Foundation’s upcoming training events, please visit the Training Portal.
“Hebron Christian Academy thanks the Herzog Foundation for its generous support of our new life-changing academic venture — Lions Learning Academy. Our school will minister to 250 children with moderate to severe special needs through a cutting-edge therapeutic model where students will be given an education of excellence, and will receive necessary therapy as a component of their daily academic schedule. In addition, the families of children with special needs will be loved and cared for in an intentional Christian community where Christ is preeminent. This school will change lives,” said Hebron Christian Academy Head of School James Taylor.
