The Benefits

“Students in Released Time programs perform better than their classmates as a whole in almost every category.”


(Monique W. Morris, Garry Krisberg, Sharan Shanoa, 2003. Summary of Findings: Released Time Bible Education. Columbia, SC; Oakland, SC; School Ministries; National Council on Crime and Delinquency.)

The Benefits of Released-Time Bible Education classes:

  • The Bible offers a worldview grounded in HOPE – life has meaning and purpose beyond the accumulation of wealth and/or cultivation of status.


  • Youth receive a strong foundation for moral and ethical character.


  • Biblical foundation leads students to be a positive part of their community – improved relationship with family and friends, improved respect for authority and their peers and reduction in risk-taking behavior.


  • Partnership with community churches helps connect students who often bring their families as well.
