- "Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another."G.K. Chesterton
- We are excited about your interest in Ad Fontes Academy! We know that selecting the right school for your children is one of the most significant decisions you face as parents. From Kindergarten to High School Graduation, your children will spend nearly 20,000 hours in the classroom and in school-related activities. Your child`s K-12 school classroom and community will profoundly influence the core values and foundation skills that they bring to college and life. Choosing who will play a part in shaping their intellect, soul, and character is a weighty matter!
- At Ad Fontes, we take great care in getting to know you and your children personally, and desire to share who we are through Open Houses, visits, and lots of conversation. We trust that you will experience Ad Fontes as a school that cares deeply for your family and desires the best educational community for your children.
- Here are the most distinguishing features of an Ad Fontes education:
- Christ-centered Education Shaping Students` Character
- Ad Fontes believes Jesus Christ is Lord of all creation, every person, and every school subject. Thus, we are firmly committed to a thoroughly Christ-centered education in all aspects of the school. Our primary goal is to encourage each student`s maturity in their Christian walk, servant leadership skills, and moral character. This begins with a community committed to loving one another and to modeling a Christian life. Students are equipped to seek after truth, wisdom, and the purpose for which he or she is created.
- Classical Education Engaging Students` Minds
- Ad Fontes is an academically challenging school with a purpose: to equip our students with the ability to think for themselves. We believe a classical (or liberal arts) education best fulfills this goal. Caring, capable teachers engage and prepare students with the foundational knowledge (grammar), the tools of reasoning (logic), and the skills of persuasive writing and speaking (rhetoric). Students develop a strong work ethic and confidence as they exhibit mastery and understanding in each subject. We are dedicated to cultivating young people who are exceedingly well-prepared to excel in college and in life.
- Parent Partnership and School Community Building Lasting Friendships
- We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children and are active partners in the students` learning process. In collaboration, Ad Fontes teachers develop strong bonds with the students that go well beyond classroom learning. Students learn to love classmates of diverse ability and personality, and to care for students across the grade levels. Ad Fontes students grow up in a nurturing and challenging place where they establish lifelong values and friendships.If these goals align with those of your family, we encourage you to continue through the application process. Read through these pages carefully, explore our website www.adfontes.com, and please contact Beth Strachan, at email@example.com, with any questions you may have. We pray that through this process, your family will deepen your vision and refine your goals for your children. We are excited to walk through this journey with you!
- Sincerely in Christ,
- Dean K. Luckenbaugh
