Classical Education

Classical education helped to propel Western Civilization to the top of the world in civic institutions, personal liberty, philanthropy, economic enterprise, technological innovation, and relative safety and security. It is rooted in an approach from ancient Greece and Rome that developed over a long period of time in the West.

Classical schools take an approach to education characterized by a traditional liberal arts and sciences curriculum and pedagogy. Our orientation towards truth, beauty, and goodness aims to cultivate wise and virtuous citizens.
