Good for Children, Good for the World Agathos is a Greek word meaning good, that which is beneficial and worth passing on to others. Using the tools of classical education, Agathos Classical School assists Christian parents in teaching and training their children to the glory of God.
We desire our graduates to be young men and women who possess the classical tools that enable them to acquire the facts (grammar), reason clearly (logic), communicate effectively and persuasively (rhetoric), and live a life to the glory of God alone (Soli Deo Gloria).
They will know how to think rather than simply what to think.
