Classical Education

5 Reasons Classical Education is Essential for the 21st Century

  1. Classical education teaches you to think.  Know.  Understand.  Create.  A good thinker does all three in that order.  Classical education builds on that foundation in every subject.
  2. Classical education provides a sound moral foundation.  The Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Apostle’s Creed are learned “by heart,” so that they go with the students.
  3. Learning Latin and English Grammar produces excellent thinkers.  Good writing and good thinking go together.  We teach the first to help bring forth the second.  English AND Latin are essential to that.
  4. History and the Bible are treasures to learn from, not ignore.  We teach real history rather than social studies.  Bible study is required in our classrooms.
  5. Classical education creates well-rounded students, prepared for any career.  We teach body, mind, and soul to prepare our students to choose . . . wisely.
