Why classics and the Great Books of the Judeo-Christian Western tradition?

      While other cultural studies are important, we are limited in time and energy during high school.  We cannot study everything there is to know, so we must necessarily limit.  Western Civilization, with its root of Judeo-Christian culture, is our Christian and American heritage and therefore our focus for high school. 
      Your high school student has this unique opportunity to receive a quality classical education based on a scriptural worldview, Great Books of the Judeo-Christian Western civilization, Francis Schaeffer books, and primary source documents.  Each course features the “best of the best” for each time period.  In addition, all study is mentored learning with Socratic discussions.  This allows for a safe forum to discuss challenging current events or difficult concepts with encouraging and supportive peers. 
      My aim is for students to claim their Christian faith and educational goals to produce a satisfying sense of accomplishment.  But more importantly, the goal is for students to express their faith as they assess ideas and communicate them using rhetoric skills in a winsome and engaging way to a culture that sorely needs Christ’s redeeming effects. 
      Students may not, will not, get this opportunity to have a Great Books education from a Christian perspective in college.  Now is the time! Enroll today.
