"WRAP" stands for: "Worklife Restoration and Advancement Project"
It is a 2-year commitment on the part of Christian schools to have the entire teaching staff trained in the fundamentals of biblical worldview and theology of work, with classroom applications at every grade level.
If students fail to see how academics fit into the bigger picture of a biblical worldview, including theology of work, they will tend to see the Bible as relevant to personal matters, or affairs of the church, but not relevant to business, law or civil service. Because of this, many will leave their faith at the workplace door as adults, and the world suffers for it.
Christian schools often see "biblical worldview integration" as a goal, but it is actually a means to a greater end. The WRAP clarifies that greater end. For more, read Dr. Overman's essay, The Lost Purpose for Learning.
