Education is the Cultivation of Virtue
We teach our students to think well (Intellectual Virtues), we train them to lead (Cardinal virtues), we transform them with a love of goodness (Moral Virtues), we train them to be winsome as they write and speak with eloquence (Rhetorical virtues), we deepen their knowledge of God, history, and our world (the virtue of Wisdom) and we immerse them in a Christian view of all things.
Classical Christian Education
Classical Christian schools use children’s God-given strengths at each stage of growth to help them learn; young children enjoy memorizing, singing, and rhymes, so a solid foundation is laid in each subject of study at this age; junior-high students are inquisitive, so we develop their ability to reason and discern truth; and high-school students want to talk, so we teach them how to present their ideas persuasively. The result is a graduate who knows what they believe and why and can positively impact the community around them.
The Good Soil Report is a comparative study of 24-to 42-year-old alumni from public, secular private, Catholic, evangelical Christian, religious homeschool, and Association of Classical Christian Education schools on the topics of life choices, preparation, attitudes, values, opinions, and practices.

We're all about creating genuine relationships with our students so that Christ is made real in and out of School life. Every school day begins with morning worship, devotionals, and prayer. Weekly chapel services encourage growth in and commitment to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
