Classical Christian Education (CCE) is designed to sharpen students’ reasoning, language, and rhetoric skills aligned with a vision of Christian truth and knowledge.  Rather than emphasizing “subjects,” it emphasizes seven core contents which cultivates the goal of bringing light to Christ’s creation and Kingdom.

The Classical approach to education has been at the foundation of much of Western thought.  Its three stages, grammar, logic and rhetoric are well suited to the natural developmental stages of children. The content of a classical approach requires studying the best thinkers of the ages, secure in the fact that God is the author of all truth.  The educational and adaptive training your child receives will be characterized by:​​​

  • Core curriculum development in the areas of mathematics, science and logic which will in turn help to see the order, beauty and harmony of God’s creation. 

  • Educational enrichment through and active approach to learning, memorizing, reading, writing, and reflecting in order to expand individual creativity and enrich meaningful interactions between peers and adults. 

  • A working knowledge of history timetables. Our curriculum is organized according to periods of history, which are integrated across disciplines.

  • An emphasis on literary classics, and developing excellence and eloquence in written and spoken expression.  

  • A study of Latin to further develop an understanding of language, literature and logic.

  • A study of orthodox Christian doctrine, focused on the truths that have bound Christians through the ages, that we might be better able to give glory to God in all things and serve His Kingdom.

Novelist Dorothy Sayers’ 1947 address at Oxford University on classical education is an easy read and great introduction to the philosophy of classical education. You can access The Lost Tools of Learning here.
