School Notes

"Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another." G.K. Chesterton

At Ad Fontes, we take great care in getting to know you and your children personally.
Here are the most distinguishing features of an Ad Fontes education:
  • Emboldening Faith: Encouraging students to seek truth and pursue purpose.
  • Engaging Intellects: Equipping students with the tools necessary for life-long learning.
  • Embracing Purpose: Cultivating servant leaders.
Integrating Faith with Academics
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 taught to recognize and seek that which is true, good, and beautiful

Clasisical Christian Education
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.
