What is Classical
Classical Christian education teaches that the truth of God's power and love is manifest in every area of study, with application to all subjects and, as a result, to everyday life. Our students see every inch of thought, history, and natural creation as an extension of the work of Jesus Christ.
What Subjects Do We Offer?
