About this school

Our Classical method of teaching is unique, but it is no experiment. Some of the greatest leaders and thinkers of Western civilization have been educated this way. A guiding principal for our dedicated faculty is that every child of God is capable of extraordinary achievements through classical training and cultivation of character. We believe that all education should be education that naturally leads students toward the good, the true, and the beautiful.
