Many have asked, “Why are people outside of Europe and America embracing Christian classical education? Isn’t it an inherently Western form of education?” Mr. Ravi Jain reveals how those practicing Christian classical education beyond the Western world are inspired to do so because it is the inheritance of the historic Christian Church—an inheritance for every nation, tribe, and tongue to receive.
Ravi Jain has taught calculus and physics at The Geneva School in Orlando, Florida since 2003. He has largely focused on understanding the role of math and science in a classical Christian curriculum, developing a unique integrated math and physics course: “The Scientific Revolution.” Students study and read the works of Kepler, Galileo, Pascal, and Newton in the course. He received a BA in Political Science from Davidson College in North Carolina, where he studied both the natural sciences and the humanities. Before teaching at The Geneva School, Mr. Jain taught math through AP calculus at Seminole Presbyterian School in Tampa, Florida and worked as an associate pastor while completing a master’s degree from Reformed Theological Seminary. He also earned a graduate certificate in mathematics from the University of Central Florida. He is the co-author of The Liberal Arts Tradition: A Philosophy of Christian Classical Education. *Adapted from The Geneva School website
