Through a proven,
centuries-old pattern of education called the Trivium, students are
taught using specific methods which correlate to their natural,

skills, but rather to master the tools of learning and build
critical thinking methodologies so as to become life-long learners

results? Practically, our graduates earned an average of $14,000 in
college aid/scholarships each for their first year of college!

college grounded in their faith and confident in applying Christian
thinking to the world around them.
They are poised young men and
women of godly character who are prepared to stand for their faith
in all situations.
