Core Values

We believe…


faith is foundational. We accept students of all faiths, but we teach from a worldview that acknowledges God to be the author of knowledge and the source of all wisdom and truth. Having a biblical understanding, students will learn to discern the values of the present culture and to navigate it successfully as Christians. More than anything, we desire our students to have a living, saving faith in Christ.

 

We believe…


rigorous classical education produces exceptionally well-educated students who are prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Besides mastering subject matter, classically-educated students learn the “art of learning.”

 

We believe…


following the logical educational stages of the trivium helps children learn in the manner in which they were designed to learn. This three-stage developmental approach first teaches the fundamentals of every subject, then uses logic and reasoning to integrate knowledge, and finally teaches students to eloquently and persuasively communicate knowledge and ideas.

 

We believe…


development of virtuous character is as important as attainment of knowledge. A classical and Christian education cultivates character by studying and imitating the attributes of God as reflected in His Son Jesus. In the Gospel-oriented environment of our classroom the souls of children are nourished with the virtues of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness found in God.

 

We believe…


when children are educated in a caring environment with high academic standards they meet the challenge. Your child can achieve exceptional results!

“Although we often succeed in teaching our pupils ‘subjects,’ we fail lamentably on the whole in teaching them how to think: they learn everything, except the art of learning.” From the essay The Lost Tools of Learning presented at Oxford University in 1947 by Dorothy Sayers.
