Area Christian schools have formed a coalition to work together in multiple areas. Grace Academy hosted the coalition's kickoff meeting last summer.
According to Jack Appleby of Grace Academy, the coalition's goal is to find ways for Christian schools to share resources and ideas.
This collaborative effort includes schools within a 35-mile radius, as far north as Chambersburg Pa., south to Martinsburg, W.Va., and east to Frederick, Md. Most, but not all, of the schools are in the Mid-Atlantic Christian Association. Small schools like Ebenezer in Hagers-town have been invited to participate.
Pastor Bill Wyand of Broadfording Christian Academy said Christian schools must pull together in times of difficulty in order to reach their full potential.
