I recently gave a financial gift to an organization called “Public School Exit – Give Parents a Choice.” They are part of a nationwide movement to save our kids from public schools and their anti-Christian, anti-family policies. I am happy to say that God is birthing a similar movement right here in Rhode Island.
Recently I was part of a meeting with 6 Christian schools in greater Rhode Island. The purpose was to see if they could collaborate, cooperate, and seek God for wisdom on working together to give parents better choices for educating their children. We have another meeting scheduled in a few weeks, and I will keep you posted on the progress. But for now, the greatest need (right after prayer) is for teachers in the fall. Three of the schools asked me to let the Christian community know their needs, so here is a list of opportunities:
Seekonk Christian Academy (95 Sagamore Rd. Seekonk, MA 02771 / 508-336-2615) Needs two middle school teachers with classroom experience, able to teach two core classes under the Abeka Curriculum. Call or email Chris Pfeiffer: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: https://www.seekonkchristianacademy.com/
Academy of Higher Learning (1436 Grand Army Highway [Route 6 near the RI line] Swansea, MA 02777) Need multiple teachers for the fall. Call or email 508-324-4500 / email@example.com Website: https://www.newhopechristianchurchma.com/academy-of-higher-learning
Providence Classical Academy (will meet the first year at Grace Church in East Cranston) This will be a hybrid school – 2 days in the classroom and 3 days homeschool. Job descriptions for needed teacher positions (2nd – 4th grad) can be found here: https://www.pvdclassicalacademy.com/teacher-application. For more info, call or email Luke Harding: 502-224-3293 / firstname.lastname@example.org Website: https://www.pvdclassicalacademy.com
Here are the other three schools that were part of that meeting. Please PRAY DAILY for all of them that God will meet their needs and give parents the options they need for their children!
Barrington Christian Academy

Dayspring Christian Academy

Please note – I’m sure there are any number of other Christian schools in Greater RI. These six schools have agreed to build relationships and explore how to better work together to meet the needs of parents and students rather than compete. So, please PRAY for them, their NEEDS, and their success.
I am a great fan of Henry Blackaby and his study “Experiencing God”! There is no doubt in my mind that God, who knows what is up ahead as Christ’s Second Coming draws near, has a plan and is inviting us to join him as he takes action.
