Q. What is a Classical Christian School?
Classical education focuses on teaching all students the tools necessary for self-education. It assumes all students are created in the image of God, wonderfully and fearfully knit together, with their own academic strengths and weaknesses that will develop at different rates and reveal individual passions. Classical education places its trust in a true, good and beautiful Creator who willingly sacrificed himself for our sins. Classical education embraces an educational curriculum that students verify with their life’s calling. It also teaches students HOW to think critically not WHAT to think.
Q. What denomination is this school and who runs it?
HCCA is a non-denominational school, we welcome people from all faiths who are like-minded with our statement of faith. We are an independent school with its own board.
Q. What curriculum do you plan to use?
We will be using the classical curriculum Memoria Press Core Curriculum for Schools. Memoria Press offers a strong academic curriculum in Judeo-Christian values with an emphasis in classical literature and Latin. “Memoria Press exists to promote and impart the classical heritage of the Christian West. We do this through an emphasis on the liberal arts and the great works of the Western tradition. In order to achieve this goal, we have produced a comprehensive and accessible classical Christian curriculum that encourages the development of wisdom and virtue through a pursuit of the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. Our motto is “Saving Western Civilization One Student at a Time” and expresses our passion for defending and transferring the culture of the Christian West through classical education. After teaching the mastery of basic skills and classic children’s literature in the primary grades, the curriculum has a dual focus on the intellectual skills of the liberal arts and the cultural content of the great books in grades 3-8.” -Memoria Press
Q. Do you plan to do online learning due to COVID?
We are a small school with small class sizes. We plan to only have in person classes as long as we can meet all of the recommended guidelines. If for some reason the Governor shuts down schools like he did in the spring of 2020, we will do what we can to still spend one on one time with each student by making accommodations. Online learning is a very last resort. We do have a protocol to screen, manage hygiene and keep our environment safe for children and teachers. Masks are not required at this time but could become necessary depending on any exposure to our families.
