Mission Statement

Abiding Peace Virtual School is dedicated to providing a Christian high school education for students who could benefit from a virtual school experience.

While in-person education remains the best model for the teaching/learning experience, not all students can experience that model. Abiding Peace Virtual School exists to provide a virtual Christian high school experience for those around the world who could benefit from the virtual school option.

Abiding Peace Virtual School is a pilot project sponsored by Sattler College and is administrated in Texas by Chester Weaver.

To the Users of the Abiding Peace Virtual School


First of all, thank you for considering this pioneering effort of the Third Way at virtual schooling. We are learning much as we proceed one step at a time. That means we have quite a bit more to learn. For that reason we beg your patience, your forbearance, and your constructive input as we proceed. We commit ourselves to do our very best from our end. We solicit your best cooperation on your end.


Education is being disrupted because of Covid 19 for many students across the nation these days. Also, many parents across the nation are becoming aware of disturbing ideas being taught to their children without their consent. And then the mask-wearing issue…


Christian Light Education unapologetically and continually promotes God-fearing values in the midst of all the swirling confusion on the educational scene. Children must understand that the Sovereign Lord of the Universe does not change, that Christ remains an anchor to stabilize believers in the midst of social change, and that Christ is worthy of unfailing trust. Home, school, and church reinforce each other in this effort.


Because this is a pioneering effort, we are launching on a small scale. We plan to increase our offerings in the future. Please consider our offerings shown below. Abiding Peace Virtual School invites prospective students to choose any or all of the following subjects.


If in-person Christian School classes would be interested in any of the subjects offered, a school representative may contact us to work out practical details. Or if any group of people, church or youth group, age 16 or above would be interested in any of the subjects offered, a group representative may contact us. Abiding Peace Virtual School seeks to serve the Christian community as we have opportunity to do so.
