The purpose of this study was to identify and examine factors that predict the financial health across three time frames of K-12 Christian schools that have a connection with the churches of Christ. Factors studied include organizational age, student enrollment, program service revenues, administrative expenses, employment expenses, endowment funds, and unrestricted net assets. Data was collected from Internal Revenue Service Form 990 Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax and the National Center for Education Statistics Private School Universe Survey for years 2013 through 2017. This study will provide financial benchmarks that K-12 Christian school leaders can use to assess their school's financial health in relation to similar schools. In addition, this study may assist in simplifying financial analysis procedures for school leaders who do not have expertise in finance but still have a significant role in the financial management of their organization.
