School is from 8:00-2:30, Monday - Thursday.
There are many benefits. Like any uniform, school uniforms are a visual reminder of a common purpose (in this case, to learn). Uniforms remove unnecessary distractions that typically divide students (e.g., socio-economic status, name brands, preferences) and promote a common identity. While clothing is often associated as a means of self-expression, uniforms remind students that their primary expression comes from their character and choices as image-bearers of God.
There are lots of benefits! Latin increases a student’s capacity to learn. First, studying Latin provides a better grasp of English (e.g., about 80% of English vocabulary is borrowed, mainly from Latin). Second, Latin cultivates an appreciation for Western heritage (e.g., Latin was the language of the classical context and used by theologians and philosophers for the majority of Western history). Third, to study Latin is the beginning of the study of five additional languages (French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Romanian). Finally, Latin is the basis for much of the vocabulary in professional careers like law and medicine.
NOTE: The abbreviation “e.g.” stands for the Latin phrase exempli gratia, meaning “for example.”
Classical education comes from a 2,400 year tradition of teaching students how to think, not what to think (with an emphasis on virtue and wisdom). Classical education teaches students to go from what is concrete to abstract using the tools of the Trivium (grammar, logic, and rhetoric), which takes advantage of a student’s natural capacity for learning. Classical education trains students to seek out truth, beauty, and goodness. This became increasingly valuable to early Christians who found in Jesus the ultimate expression of truth, goodness, and beauty. It is precisely this kind of education that has produced countless leaders, inventors, artists, and theologians throughout history.
Accreditation takes time for new schools to achieve. We do however provide transcripts which meet all the criteria for college entrance. We are currently working with Concordis Education Partners to meet all standards and best practices. In addition, we are members of the Society for Classical Learning and the Association of Classical Christian Schools.
Yes. We operate as a non-profit 501c3 organization.
Our teachers make use of a number of resources to develop a scope and sequence for each class. In Classical Education teachers are trained to become the “living curriculum” that is able to personalize education within a class. For specifics on math and science, please ask.
A 4-day model is a reminder that we exist to partner with parents. Four days on-campus is enough time to offer a robust education, establish a culture, and fulfill our mission while also allowing families additional time together.
*In the future, we intend to make available a fifth day option that could include a la carte classes, tutoring, and more.
The Bible establishes two institutions for the discipleship of children: the family and the church. As a school, we exist to partner with families and churches in the education of students. If Christian parents believe the education of their student is important, we believe it is imperative for families to be part of a local church. Please let us know how we can help you find a church home.

We look for teachers who:
1) are mature in their Christian faith,
2) have a gift for teaching, and
3) are compelled by the classical model.
Grade-based segregation was developed by the Prussians as a way of creating soldiers. It is a rather arbitrary method because it bases a student’s learning proficiencies on their date of birth. Much more helpful is assessing a student’s learning level to ensure they are placed in the right class. We are intentional in providing Learning Levels (a form of blended grades) because of the way it helps with subject mastery: younger students aspire towards the older and older students are made stronger by teaching the younger.
We believe good education serves all. We offer classical teaching as the “input”, but only expect “output” based on the gifting of each individual student. We believe children are not defined by their condition (whether diagnosed with a learning disability or those with developmental delays or trauma). We believe children are first and foremost image-bearers of the living God (Gen. 1:26-27). Each child has a mind, body, and soul that has the same needs and desires as other children.
We make academic and behavioral accommodations for children at the recommendation of the Education Council and upon review of diagnostic information and/or circumstances. We will seek to make a final decision on accommodations based on professional advice, prayer, and consult with invested parties (i.e. parents and teachers) for the best decision for the student and community.
We recognize that each child is created with unique gifts and struggles, but also that a child’s condition is not an excuse for sin. We believe it is important to individualize instruction without compromising the community. We employ a variety of methods to help our students learn to focus their minds and calm their bodies, so they can grow in their love for God and neighbor. We are not able to accommodate children with known overt behaviors that would morally or physically, intentionally harm other students.
