Greetings and Welcome!
I believe that classical Christian education glorifies Christ. The Christ I serve makes the world larger, not smaller. He affords us the liberty to explore the vast expanse of truth with joy and excitement. Knowing Christ as the one in whom “all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17) emboldens us to explore theology, history, literature, philosophy, and mathematics as expressions of worship that are as varied as they are unified.
My commitment to the classical model goes beyond an obvious admiration of the interconnected disciplines of the Trivium and Quadrivium. My commitment also has a personal component. I have four children. I want to see them take their places among the next generation of Christian leaders who will have a vibrant appreciation for the life of the mind. I want them, and every student at Paideia, to be well-spoken, well-read, and well-informed. There is great hope for that outcome in a classical Christian school.
I hope that you will join us in this exciting journey. I look forward to meeting your family!
