What is classical Christian education? How is it different from other types of Christian education? What does it mean to say that this style of education is “classical”? In this seminar we will address these questions by examining a number of theoretical assumptions that undergird and unite various forms of classical Christian education. These foundational beliefs provide a framework for understanding the philosophy of education that guides all classical Christian schools but also allows for a wide diversity of curricula and pedagogical methodology. This examination of the theoretical foundations of classical Christian education will be useful both for those who are new to the movement and for those who already are very familiar with it but are interested in examining in more detail the foundational beliefs on which it is based.
