Classical Curriculum

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”  -St. Paul, Philippians 4:8

What is Classical Curriculum?

A classical curriculum is concerned not merely with good grades but with the good life.  It hands on to the next generation a wholistic worldview that seeks to integrate God’s grace, wise thinking, and virtuous living. By emphasizing good grammar, logical arguments, and beautiful speech, classical curriculum teaches students not simply what to think but how to think.  It explores both the natural world of science around us and the supernatural world of the soul within us.  True classical education expands the realm of possibilities and draws us closer to Christ, making us better versions of ourselves.
