Education that Inspires Depth and Wisdom
An Overview of Classical Christian Education
Classical Christian Education is a form of education that emphasizes critical thinking, communication skills, and a Christian worldview. It draws from the ancient Greek education system, which aimed to train citizens for self-governance and freedom. Later, it was Christianized and refined by medieval scholars into what we know today. Instead of focusing on specific subjects, it focuses on the seven liberal arts to free the mind from external influences. The ultimate goal is to cultivate wisdom in light of Christ's kingdom and creation.
The Treasures of a Classical Christian Education
Veritas Academy aims to guide students towards treasures that enlighten the mind, inspire emotion, and channel the will. The Classical Christian education approach recognizes that education goes beyond memorizing facts and seeks to ignite a student's reason, values, and passion. This treasure lies in invariable truth, incredible beauty, and unassailable goodness, which have been excavated from the teachings of Greek philosophers. The goal is to prepare students for college and beyond, while instilling a deep love for Christ and a desire to serve others.
Education that Forms the Soul
Today, Christians often talk about worldview, but overlook the deeper concept of paideia. Paideia refers to the education that shapes the soul of a human being, and is fundamental to culture formation. Classical education focuses on the entire person, including their worldview, habits, thought patterns, character, and culture. It aims to cultivate virtue and a deep appreciation for truth, goodness, and beauty in students. The goal is to align students' virtues and reasoning with God's will - a Christian paideia.
