How is This Legal?

What makes our program unique is that it isn’t extracurricular — it takes place DURING the public school day! Many people wonder how teaching the Bible to children in public school is legal. This is a fully legal elective part of the national released time rulings that ALL states recognize. Released Time allows children attending public school to receive religious education of their choice during the school day.

The idea of Released Time began in the early 1900’s and has been upheld over the years by the Supreme Court as protected by the Constitution. For more information on how this is legal, check out this informative podcast episode.

How Can Faith Be Part of Your Child’s Public School Day?

Did you know that your child can:

  • Pray in school
  • Wear religious clothing
  • Talk about God in class assignments
  • Start a religious club on campus that receives the same rights and resources as other clubs
  • Freely share their faith with others

So YES, faith can be part of your child’s public school day. For more information on how your children can FREELY share their beliefs in school, check out this blog.
