Augustine Classical Academy

Tel: (518)541-2089
Grades: K - 12 | 63 students
Augustine Classical Academy, a classical Christian school in Saratoga county, equips students with tools of learning using the time-tested Trivium method.
 Following the biblical pattern laid out by Solomon, students grow in knowledge, understanding, and wisdom as they learn to view all of life through the lens of Scripture.
 Younger students are introduced to the pleasant rigor of classical learning as they learn the grammar of subjects through chants, rhymes, and songs.
 Dialectic students (grades 7-9) learn to reason well as they study formal logic and apply its principles to all other disciplines.
 Rhetoric students (grades 10-12),  articulate and thoughtful young adults, speak and write with confidence and poise.
  With small classes and lively discussions, an emphasis on Christian charity in relationships, and a belief that all education is discipleship, students pursue a rigorous course of study within a community of Christian scholars.
