I know of a number of Christian universities (Taylor University, 
Redeemer College, Calvin College, Cederville, and LeTeourneau) that 
use Linux in their teaching of computer science.  I was in charge of 
managing the computer labs at Taylor, and have recruited students for 
our mission from the other universities listed.  Most of those listed 
(I am not as familiar with Redeemer and Cederville, so I cannot speak 
for them) are teaching programming for mobile devices using both I-Os 
and Android.

I am not familiar with many smaller schools, but the universities 
that I have listed are the only ones I have approached.  Basically, 
100% of the Christian universities that have fairly good computer 
programs have Linux in some form or other as a part of their 
curriculum.  Granted, I do not think that the very limited number I 
have approached has any hope of being a good pool for being 
statistically correct.  I think one would need to have queried a much 
higher number of schools for any hope of getting a good sampling.  
But, I would wager to say that a good portion of Christian 
universities that hope to teach computer skills do use Linux.
