Biblical Dream Meaning of School

Biblical Dream Meaning of School
  • What does it mean when you dream about going back to school? 

A good number of people have had recurring dreams about school. So it is not strange to dream about sitting in a classroom again, even after you've been through school and graduated from it. 

Even PhD and Masters Degree holders occasionally dream about being in schools they long graduated from. This very one is a strange one! The meaning of such dreams must be unravelled. 

The fact that one dreams about being in school does not mean that they will return back to the schools they once graduated from. 

The exception can be applied to cases of teenagers seeking admission into the college or university. If they dream about gaining admission (while actually seeking for it in waking life), then the meaning is not far-fetched. 

Apart from such instances, the meaning of school dreams go way deeper. So follow up as we explore the meaning of your school dreams from a Christian perspective. 

Dream Meaning of Being In School


  • Why do I dream about school?

A simple interpretation for dreams concerning being in school is that they are pointers to the fact that the dreamer is in their season of learning, training, testing and transition. 

Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. 

It is the season where God is building and equipping them to walk in their divine purpose or calling. 

To better understand the meaning of our dreams about school, we will have to take certain symbols in the dream into consideration. They include:

  • The school grade 
  • The level of education
  • The class, and other symbols within the dream. 

Everyone who has God's calling upon their life will often go through the school of the Holy Spirit. God trains and equips us before using us. 

These category of people will likely often dream about being in school, even though they are graduates in their waking life. 

To these category of people, school dreams may come even more frequently. 

We must pay close attention to our school dreams, because they come encapsulated with so many messages for us to decode and comprehend. 

Dreaming of Being In The Kindergarten 


It is normal for kids to dream about learning with other kids in their kindergarten classrooms, but the same can not go for adults. 

If an adult dreams about attending classes that are meant for kids, that means something very serious!

Such dreams are often a bad omen and a warning to the dreamer. This dream often points to choices and decisions the dreamer has made that could negatively impact their life and destiny. 

Sin pulls us backwards in our walk with God. A one-time compromise could reset one's relationship with God back to level one. And such dreams might show up to further confirm the dreamer has done something wrong. 

Hebrews 5:12 (KJV) For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 

Solution: The dreamer should do self-instrospection and find out where they missed it, in terms of choices and decisions they must have made. Ask God to show you where you have missed it, and be willing to correct your mistakes. 

Obedience brings blessings, but disobedience could make one lose those blessings. Compromise attracts setback in life. 

Ask the Holy Spirit to help you make amends so you can get back to where you are supposed to be life and in your relationship with God. 

If you think you did nothing wrong, but this dream came as a form of attack from the enemy, then you have the authority to pray against and destroy it. 

Dreaming of Being Back In Elementary School 


If you dream about being back in your primary or elementary school, this is a form of setback or spiritual demotion. 

A form of setback in the sense that, the enemy has released the spirit of backwardness against the dreamer. This can be countered through prayer, fasting and the word. 

Spiritual demotion in the sense that one has made choices or decisions in waking life that seriously impacted their relationship with God negatively. Only genuine repentance can solve this. 

It is possible to see such dreams if one fails to overcome temptations but got caught up in one of them. If a Christian goes back to their past sins, this could as well trigger such dreams. 

Solution: We know ourselves more than anyone else does. So it is easy to tell whether such a dream came from the enemy or one did something wrong which triggered it. 

But in both cases, the dreamer should pray accordingly, make amends where necessary, and learn the lessons God wants them to learn in order to move forward. 

Dreaming of Being Back In High School


It is not okay for a university student or graduate to dream about being back in their former high school. This is a very disturbing dream. Such dreams tell that something is wrong (spiritually) somewhere. 

The meaning of this dream is not far from that of being back in elementary school, and the same solution is applicable. 

Dreaming of Being In the College or University 


Even after you have graduated from the college or university, but still dream about learning with other students in any higher institution, such dreams are often a good omen. 
 
  • The dreamer has made great advancement in terms of learning the things God wants them to learn. 
  • The dreamer has learned from their past mistakes and are just a few steps towards beginning to walk in and fulfil their divine purpose or destiny. 
  • The dreamer has attained maturity in Christ. 

Teacher Dream Meaning


To dream about teaching others in a classroom setting is often a good omen. 

This dream tells that the dreamer has passed God's tests, and has been trained and equipped to disciple and lead others. They have acquired so much knowledge and experience required for walking in their divine purpose or destiny. 

  • You are beginning to walk in your God-given purpose and God is pleased with you. 
  • You are a mature Christian who is able to disciple and bring others to maturity in Christ.

Summary and Conclusion On School Dreams 


It is the will of God that we make progress in life to become who He destined us to be; and walk in the fullness of all that He has in store for us. But before we get there, He will have to train and equip us. 

Many have experienced stagnancy and setbacks in life due to often seeing themselves back in their old classroom with the students who were there as at then. Such dreams can have negative impacts on the life of the dreamer, if they refuse to do something about it. 

School dreams should not be ignored and discarded as 'just a dream'. After knowing the meaning of your dreams, pray accordingly, either to affirm or dismantle them.
