Just send 'em to a Christian university.
They're not going to be happy anywhere else.

A federal judge says the University of California can deny course credit to applicants from Christian high schools whose textbooks declare the Bible infallible and reject evolution.

Rejecting claims of religious discrimination and stifling of free expression, U.S. District Judge James Otero of Los Angeles said UC's review committees cited legitimate reasons for rejecting the texts - not because they contained religious viewpoints, but because they omitted important topics in science and history and failed to teach critical thinking.
The Bible may be infallible, but it still says bats are birds, donkeys can talk, the sun can stop its course through the sky, and people can come back from the dead, which makes it a shitty science text.
