at The Christian Academy
The Christian Academy's approach to Classical Christian Education is grounded firmly in the Word of God as the basis for all knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. As such, a Christian worldview is both assumed and taught as the foundation for everything we do in both curricular and extracurricular realms. Furthermore, because all truth has its origin in God, all truth is necessarily one, and our approach to education emphasizes the importance of relating different fields of knowledge explicitly in our instructional content and methodology through interdisciplinary connections. We also are committed to bearing witness to the unity of the Body of Christ, and therefore cherish the diversity of our school community, both ethnically and denominationally, within a broadly evangelical framework,and acknowledging the interdependence of the family, church, and school. The typical components of a classical education simply serve as a means to support these foundational values, so that the emphasis on the acquisition and application of facts in the Grammar Stage (Elementary Division), on relating those facts through logical argumentation in the Logic Stage (Middle School), and through the development of effective communication in the Rhetoric Stage (High School)are smoothly incorporated into all aspects of the curriculum rather than being emphasized as explicit distinctives. Though this might not correspond to what some understand as Classical Christian Education, we believe that this is the ministry to which God has called us in the environment where we seek to serve the Christian families of southern Delaware County.
