In elementary school it rarely takes students more than 10 minutes per grade (i.e. 3rd grade, 30 min or less.) Homework reinforces what was taught & done in class. Reading is encouraged nightly to build a love and positive habit. By high school, the avg is about 2 hours (varying high & low depending upon projects, papers, & tests.)
Christian faith is integrated into every aspect of learning at Agathos. This school reinforces the values we teach at home. It provides challenging, time-tested academics that stretch students' minds, nourish their imaginations, and strengthen their hearts.
The faculty are amazing and view working with students as a calling from God, not merely a job.
I know my four children are receiving incredible preparation for life, college, & eternity.
It's amazing what my children are learning and how much they love school. The teachers point out the importance of God in every educational aspect. My kids are getting a well-rounded education that makes sense. The families are close and support each other. It's a great sense of community among the faculty, administrators, parents, grandparents and students.
Our family has been a part of this school for 12 years. There are a couple of other Christian schools in our area, but there is not another Classical option. Agathos does both really well. The student teacher ratio is small so there is individualized attention. The faculty and staff are Godly men and women with a focused desire to see each child succeed academically, personally, and spiritually. The curriculum is challenging and engaging and "uncommon". Though small with about 120 students, there are several options for sports, etc. The campus is also beautiful, situated on 17 rolling acres with plenty of play space for running and even boulders for climbing. www.agathosschool.com
Marvelous school! Wonderful teachers and families. I continue to be amazed at the educational experience, but by how well rounded the children of Agathos are! We may be small in number, but we are mighty!!! Keep up the GREAT work!
