Is a superlative Christian education possible? Consider God’s words in Jeremiah 29:11, 13. "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope…You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart."
The plans for his people are to have the best, including top-notch education for his children. Public education is flawed; leaving out major components of child development, and depending on the school’s vision, Christian education could be no more than a hybrid public education complete with the biblical insignia.
So, to what ultimate end is a Christian classical education? Is it to impart the postmodern values that constant change is equal to improvement and success? No. In fact, if we insert classical education into the technological era, it comes up short because technology becomes obsolete too quickly. Change must move slowly and deliberately and with clear perspective and purpose, otherwise it can (and has) subvert the mission of education. Ultimately, Christian classical education is designed to prepare men and women to converse and write persuasively and eloquently in many areas of knowledge including the liberal arts and sciences, and to know God as they transmit that knowledge to others.
Summit Christian Academy provides a superlative Christian education. We need parents to transmit the truth about the Christian classical education to friends and families so that our classrooms are filled with God’s family who are purposefully seeking more than what they currently have available within our society.
