Question: What Is a Classical Christian School?
Christian schools have been around for many years. But over the last decade or so classical Christian schools have become popular.
Answer: A classical Christian school embraces the Christian faith and classical educational principles. From a religious point of view these are schools which declare that Jesus Christ is their Lord and Savior. The teachings of Jesus are fundamental and immutable. Flowing from that belief is the adoption of a classical curriculum rooted solidly in great literature of the western civilization. Parents and students enroll in a classical school because they too embrace the mission and teachings of the school.

Technology takes a back seat in classical Christian schools. The emphasis is on old-fashioned but proven teaching subjects such as reading and writing and arithmetic. The aim is to produce students who are as well-schooled in their faith as they are in their academics.
