In a recent major longitudinal study, the demographic organisation Cardus came to significant conclusions about the graduates from Christian schools in the US. We can certainly aspire for the same outcomes at Charlton and through Australia. The comprehensive study revealed a very distinctive picture of these graduates. Compared to their public school, Catholic school, and private school peers, graduates were found to be, on average, more generous, outwardly-focused individuals with significantly greater commitment to their families and larger society.
Graduates of Christian schools were found to donate money significantly more than graduates from other schools, despite having lower household income. Similarly, graduates of Christian schools are more generous with their time, participating far more than their peers in service trips for relief and development. When families and schools partner together, the impact for good on students and society is inspiring!
