On Education

“Education is the food of youth, the delight of old age, the ornament of prosperity, the refuge and comfort of adversity, and the provocation to grace in the soul.” - St. Augustine

What is Classical Education?

Classical Christian education is an intentional approach to teaching and learning in which students are:

Grounded in Piety, Governed by Theology

All subjects are taught through the lens of a solid Christian worldview.

Trained in the Liberal Arts

The liberal arts of language and mathematics train students to reason well and develop virtue.

Cultivated by Classical Content

The content of the canon of Western Civilization, including the Great Books, provides the intellectual environment in which students grow in wisdom.
