Prepare, Deepen, Transform
Classical Christian education is an educational category which establishes a biblical worldview by incorporating ancient methods of student development. It includes the cultivation of the 7 Christian Virtues, training student reasoning through the Trivium (Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric), and interacting with the historical Great Books.
Our unique method, based in the tradition of the Trivium, works with the age of the child through grammar (k–6), logic (grades 7–8), and rhetoric (grades 9–12) to develop clear thinking and a masterful command of spoken and written language.
Students engage great books containing rich stories that shape both the soul and literary understanding. A rich and nuanced command of language plays an unsung role in understanding Gods word, and in understanding our fellow man.
We realize this sounds strange, or foreign. But since the time of the early church, Christians have been about training students to love the true, the good, and the beautiful. And, to “rightly order” those loves so that we love first our God, and then our neighbor. This means that we order our affections as God would.
This is more than adding a bible verse to the curriculum. When every facet of history, science, math, philosophy, art, and other subjects is integrated around the truth of the Christian worldview, students gain a unique and important perspective.
