Classical Academy's vision is to form young men and women of virtue who possess the skills needed to engage the world from a variety of perspectives, the capacity to properly assess and adapt to different situations, and the ability to argue for, and in defense of, their basic moral and philosophical principles.

We offer a classical education curriculum which emphasizes mastery of the fundamentals of rhetoric, literature, grammar, science, mathematics, history, government, economics, Latin, theology, and philosophy. Among the countless advantages to a classical education, one is that it teaches many different subjects but always with a focus on a complete understanding of humanity and the physical world. It furthermore seeks to draw connections among the various disciplines, as well as their influence on the past, present, and future of human culture, government, and society.
We strive also to give our students the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in life and in the work place. We offer vocational training, including internship programs and hands-on courses, for those students who wish to pursue a trade or technical career, or who wish to pursue an entrepreneurial endeavor.
We are a nondenominational Christian institution which actively seeks to instill virtues in our students and to develop their moral character. In addition, we have an entire theological curriculum available to those who wish to study the Old and New Testaments, the Patristics, and the foundations of the spiritual life.
Our curriculum is centered on understanding subject matter rather than merely memorizing it. The curriculum thus incorporates three teaching models into its program: Socratic methodology, lecturing, and project-based learning. All of these methods are integrated together to ensure a well-rounded and interdisciplinary approach to education.
