Christian classical educators believe that our faith’s major ideas about the world ought to deeply affect how our schools look and what they do, far beyond simply adding (very good!) practices such as Bible reading and chapel attendance on top an essentially secular base. Our faith’s “first principles” ought to permeate everything we do. That often means making significant changes to curriculum, classroom management, teaching styles, and more. Classical schools essentially take the “Christian” concept so seriously that we use Christianity’s fundamental truths to transform our entire approach to education.
This short video from a classical school in Boise, Idaho, gives a quick introduction to this idea. You can get some more in-depth info from our “classical education” page.
