Valuable lessons are gained from those who have gone before us. In The Successful Christian School, A.A. Baker shares from his years of experience in working with Dr. and Mrs. Arlin Horton, founders of Pensacola Christian Academy and A Beka Book. As the Hortons freely shared their principles of success with others, Baker had opportunity to talk to countless pastors and principals across the country. The author learned “that quality Christian schools are possible anywhere if one is willing to stand for the right, do the work, and trust in the Lord for the increase” (11). This book gives basic foundational principles for starting and operating a successful Christian school ministry. It incorporates both practical, helpful ideas that have proven successful for over 60 years and common stumbling blocks and pitfalls to avoid. Even schools that have been operating for many years can benefit from advice for hiring teachers and ways to increase enrollment. The book especially discusses the foundational philosophy that those in Christian education must consider in establishing and operating a Christian school.

This easy-to-read book is laid out with bold headings, helpful charts, numbered lists, and appendix samples. Each chapter begins with a “Seeds for Thought” page that quotes pertinent ideas from a variety of authors. From finances to standards of conduct, the helpful tips provide a goldmine of information for those with a burden for Christian education.
