When considering the educational experience of our students, we begin with the end in mind-a distinctive that shapes our teaching methods and school culture. Our Christian classical education is designed to educate the whole child, cultivating wisdom and virtue by emphasizing truth, beauty, and goodness in the teaching process. Our instruction methods are carefully chosen and consist of time-honored educational practices, allowing us to create a well-rounded academic foundation for each student.
Our primary goal is for all students to see Christ at the center of all areas of their lives, in a way that compels them to love God with all their heart, mind, soul, and strength.
At its core, a classical education is rooted in the concept of cultivating wisdom and virtue. Our academic program is designed to equip our students to listen thoughtfully, reason wisely, speak persuasively, and act intentionally.
Each discipline is approached through the lens of God’s love, and is appreciated for its separate value but studied as being entirely interconnected. Our students observe that the world is a unified whole–created, sustained, and governed by God.
The education we provide our students cultivates truth in the soul, nourishes the mind on what is good, and sows a desire to love what is lovely, all of which is guided by God’s truth. It is a journey that transforms them into the image of God moving them from merely knowing what is good, true and beautiful, to loving it.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. – Philippians 4:8 NIV
We recognize that our students’ choices emerge from their inner well-being and are therefore committed to modeling, teaching, and cultivating godly virtues with an appreciation for each child’s unique nature.
Our discipleship involves discipline of which the goal is heart-obedience rather than mere rule-following, good manners, and self-control.
We recognize parents as the primary educators of their children. With that in mind, we join in a covenant with parents to act in mutual support as we pursue a Christ-centered education for each child.
