What does it mean to be HUMAN?

The purpose and potential of humans is FAR greater than being an employee! We begin with higher goals than “college and career readiness.”

Beauty, Goodness, Truth, & Technology

We love books and classical education is firmly anchored in language. Our use of technology is limited and deliberate to maximize student development and thinking.
 

TESTIMONIALS

 

 

WHEN IS THE NEXT OPEN HOUSE?

 

Although we have an open-door policy, we recommend Thursday morning visits. You can sign in at the office by 8:00 AM, attend our weekly chapel service, observe classes, and visit with school personnel.

Calling the office (931-388-0556) prior to visiting is encouraged to prevent overlap with breaks and field trips.  After submission of an application, we invite older students to schedule a day to shadow their future classmates.

 We look forward to meeting you and sharing our passion for classical Christian education!
