To advance Bible education for students in Hamilton County public schools
THROUGH BROAD COMMUNITY SUPPORT, bible in the schools raises funds to provide elective BIBLE courses to hamilton county public schools, at no cost to taxpayers.
Since 1922, Bible in the Schools has provided Hamilton County public schools with the funds for students in grades 6-12 to have the opportunity to optionally, and academically, study the Bible in their classroom, at no cost to taxpayers. These courses, offered as electives in participating middle and high schools, allow students to study the Bible from a literary and historical perspective. The Hamilton County Bible program consists of five elective courses that are taught from a non-devotional and viewpoint-neutral perspective, using a court-approved curriculum, and court-approved textbook, the Bible. The entire cost of the countywide program is funded entirely through generous donors of the Hamilton County community and beyond. The Hamilton County Bible program is inclusive to students from all walks of life, all backgrounds, and seeks equal access for all public school students interested in electively studying the Bible. Bible in the Schools is in its 100th year.
In an ever-changing culture, there are very few things that stay the same. The Bible, however, has stood the best of time and remains one of the cornerstone texts of world history and the narrative that has arguably had the most profound influence upon Western literature and the culture around us. Generations upon generations have also turned to the Bible for hope and direction." - Mrs. Cathy Scott, President, Bible in the Schools
