Why a Classical Education?

“Truth, Goodness and Beauty.” Classical education seeks to fulfill each of these precepts. The study of Theology and Church teaching can further inform students of Christ’s truths. Students can explore history, philosophy and literature with an eye towards what is Good. Through music, sciences, drama and the arts, students will then embark on a quest to what is truly beautiful. Each tenant fulfills the others. In addition, a classical education seeks to inform and call out a student’s whole mind, without compromising the truth, something other schools simply cannot do.
