Upper Academy


Course content at the Upper Academy level reflects our education philosophy, which blends a Classical approach with a Christian worldview.  As our students move into our Upper Academy, courses have been designed to build on the concrete, or grammar stages, of instruction in the elementary grades and to offer greater levels of skills and practices that support the more abstract, or logic, stage of classical development.  We believe the Upper Academy years offer the best opportunity to equip our students with the tools to maneuver around our complicated world, while being able to logically explain their own growing understanding of what an analytical and ethical Christian can expect to contribute and accomplish in their lifetime.
