Abstract: This study was designed to describe selected Christian day schools in North Carolina in the 1980's through an interpretative analysis of responses to questionnaires and interviews which addressed issues related to philosophical foundations, goals and purposes, curriculum and classroom management, faculty requirements, facilities, finances, student composition, and student outcomes. Survey questionnaires were mailed to 100 Christian day schools in North Carolina with an enrollment of 75 or more with a response rate of 60 percent. Observations were made and administrators were interviewed at 5 of the responding schools to validate questionnaire responses. Prior to presenting the results of the study, a review of the literature was discussed. This review indicated that the movement was growing rapidly, with some researchers estimating that between 15 and 50 percent of school age young people in America would be in non-public schools by 1990.
