What is a Classical Christian Education?

Classical Christian Education is forming what our children love through their joyful discovery of the good, the true, and the beautiful.  It was eclipsed as the reigning model of education only about a hundred years ago, after dominating for over a thousand. It has produced some of the greatest minds in history. While the modern method of education specializes in teaching students what to think about separate subjects, the Classical Christian method teaches students how to think, so they can examine everything – math, science, all knowledge – not as disjointed subjects but as an integrated whole, with the Scriptures at the center. Classical schools use children’s God-given strengths at each stage of growth to help them learn.

Classical Christian schools teach all subjects based on the principle that God is the Creator of all that exists.  Wisdom and virtue are taught through the study of the liberal arts (the verbal arts of the trivium – grammar, logic, and rhetoric, and the mathematical arts of the quadrivium – arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy).  The Socratic method is often employed during the logic and rhetoric stages of learning. The memorization and recitation of weekly Bible verses begins in kindergarten. We teach a phonics-based reading curriculum that aims at building knowledge and content, rather than using the skills-centered approach of the Common Core standards.
