Saint Paul’s Classical School is devoted to the education of the children of Brevard County. This goal means more to us than providing another space for children to learn basic facts and skills. Rather, Education leads children from ignorance to knowledge, from foolishness to wisdom, and from dullness to wonder. Built into this process is the cultivation of the child’s ability to pursue Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. As children mature and demonstrate more comprehension, the teacher steps more and more out of the way.
“Going to school” then becomes an opportunity for whole classrooms to engage in the joy of learning. School is not fun because it is entertaining, but delights because it supplies the deepest need of the soul to know that which is truly Good.
WHY CHRISTIAN CLASSICAL EDUCATION AT SAINT PAUL’S CHURCH?
Some schools are satisfied with good manners rather than virtue. Other schools confuse ‘testing’ for ‘learning’.
Christian classical education at Saint Paul’s Church sees rightly: we teach students to love the truth and to live virtuously.
Christian education does more than encourage children to be polite to one another. Christian education prepares students to love the triune God by living for the common good.
Classical education does more than relay facts for a test. It shapes the whole human person to know and love that which is truly good in intellect, will, and desire.
This Christian Classical education available at Saint Paul’s Church serves everyone. We keep costs low to be accessible for all families.
What You Can Expect At SAINT PAUL’S CLASSICAL SCHOOL
We’ve got a beautiful world; let’s learn to love it. Take an apple: you can talk about the beauty of the color, the intricacies of its cells, or the mathematics of its curve. No portion of this world deserves less than a second look.
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is factually a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put a tomato in a fruit salad. We learn to use our knowledge to live well in God’s world.
Once we wonder at the world, there is only one wise thing to do: worship the One who made it. Saint Paul’s Classical School begins, ends, and infuses the day with prayer.
