MUI Dallas Academic Plan2013/2014

God says, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6). A child must be trained daily. To train means to exercise, to discipline, to teach and form by practice. When a child is trained, it becomes part of his character to do what he has been taught, and training must take place all through the day every day.
