From pre-school through high school, Morning Star Academy teaches truth, trains disciples, and transforms the community as it partners with families in bringing up the next generation of Christ-followers since 1994. The classical model meets children where they learn to begin in the grammar stage, where the building blocks of learning grown into a strong foundation of knowledge. As students move into the logic stage they learn how to develop the ability to determine fact from fallacy. In the rhetoric stage, students learn the rigors of organizing knowledge and argument skills into a well-thought, well-developed, and well-supported discourses on any subject. We are proud to have partnered with Morning Star Academy in educating our four children!

The faculty of Morning Star has poured into my kids' lives - and we are better for it. The love of learning evident around our supper table is exactly what my wife, and I dreamed of as parents of young children. We knew our decision to attend was right when they'd come home and ask us if we had ever read Herodotus or Plato. (The answer was "No".) The work is rigorous, but the end is beautiful.
