The purpose of The Cambridge School is to provide an accessible faith-based classical education founded upon and informed by a biblical worldview, which equips students to know, love and practice that which is true, good and beautiful, and which challenges them to strive for excellence as they live purposefully and intelligently in the service of God and humanity. The Cambridge School emphasizes the individual learning approach to education.
The school staff consults closely with you, the parent, in tailoring the program and curriculum to the individual needs of your child.
A flexible, individualized approach to education makes The Cambridge School a suitable place for students with a variety of learning styles and differences.
The Cambridge School offers a unique approach to education that combines the best teachings available in education from yesterday and today, including approaches developed in home schooling, classical education, core knowledge, and holistic experience-based classrooms.
The faith-based foundation of the school prepares students not just for further academic pursuits, but prepares them for life.
Our approach centers on the individual student, not a curriculum or specific method of learning.
The Cambridge School begins the educational process by assessing the student’s individual strengths and weaknesses academically, socially, and spiritually. Envision your child in an exciting environment where children love to learn, learn to lead, and lead to serve.  Envision your child speaking articulately with confidence, writing persuasively with clarity, and reasoning rationally with patience.  Envision your child being a leader who stands for what is right even when all around him are falling for what is wrong.  Envision your child entering high school and college with a foundation that will be with her for a lifetime.  Now, envision your child at The Cambridge School of Chicago!
