Classical Education

The classical Christian approach to education successfully nurtured children for nearly 2,000 years.  A gradual shift away from the classical approach began at the beginning of the 20th century and has led to the new progressive system of education we have across America today. 

In the past 30 years many schools have returned to the classical approach with remarkable success.  The resources on this page capture the essence of what drives us to do what we do. 

The Distinctives of a Classical Christian Education

 

The following videos produced by the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS) help explain the history, reveal the momentum, and testify to the challenges and blessings of hearing the call and making the sacrifice to take part in this educational reform movement.

Recommended Parent Reading List

We believe students benefit from parents understanding the philosophy of classical Christian education and why it's so important.  With that in mind, we have compiled a list of books and resources we encourage our parents read.
