Education With Purpose

The Society for Classical Learning (SCL) has existed since the mid-1990s to facilitate and encourage thinking and discussion among professionals associated with Christ-centered education in the liberal arts tradition. The Society provides a forum where educators can share wisdom, experience, and ideas as they deepen their understanding of classical theory into everyday, real-world education. The Society is committed to historic Christianity as expressed in the Nicene Creed and to exploring the relationship of Christ to the broader culture.

The Society for Classical Learning exists to foster human flourishing by making classical Christian education thrive.

Mission and Vision

The ancient world has much to offer us today in thinking about how we might best teach and encourage young people toward virtue, wisdom, and truth. The SCL works together with classicists, teachers, and lifelong learners to ensure that the great heritage of Western civilization is preserved, cherished, and handed on to the next generation.

We Are Classical

The SCL is rooted in The Great Tradition, using its wisdom and virtue to raise up the next generation.

We Are Christian

The SCL is grounded in the historic Christian faith as expressed in the Nicene and Apostles' Creeds.

We Are Leaders

The SCL seeks to be the leader in the classical Christian education movement by focusing on leading leaders.
