Who We AreBy God's Grace, Classical Christian Academy exists to provide a Christ-centered, Classical education firmly rooted in Biblical Truth from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade.
We wish more for our children than we have known. Looking at past educational standards and achievements reminds us that we have some serious catching up to do. The roots of classical education stretch back to the classical Greek civilization, just prior to Christ. The methods matured during the Western Christian era of the Middle Ages and came to full flowering in the Renaissance. Though universal literacy was not an educational goal in medieval Europe, the Protestant Reformation of the 1500s provided a great impetus for learning throughout middle and even lower classes with its emphasis on knowing Scripture. As a result, a very high view of education prevailed and spread throughout the Western world.
