Why? Why go to all the trouble of repairing the ruins? The simple answer: it is worth it. Our children are worth it. If this is the best education that we can give, then let’s give it. The longer answer is to defend that classical Christian education does, in fact, produce the best product. Classical Christian education produces winsome Christians who are able and willing to share and live their faith. Classical Christian education produces virtuous scholars who are lifelong learners and critical and creative thinkers. Classical Christian education produces servant leaders who can influence the culture and advance the kingdom of God.
In the links below we have included examples of various school’s portrait of a graduate. When students graduate from classical Christian schools, we hope that these qualities listed are true of them. All of the pedagogy, skills, and content employed by a school are designed with this final portrait in mind.
