What Best Prepares Students for Rhetoric Level Learning By Robi Marshall

What best prepares students for rhetoric level learning? Receiving a solid, logic level education; one that roots students more fully in faith, reason and familiarity with the great works of the past. The logic level teaches students to connect and organize information they have learned from their earliest years. They begin to realize that the Code of Hammurabi, the Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights are vitally linked and key in understanding our own form of government. For how many of us has this information remained ever jumbled and unusable? At the logic level students begin to generalize, to question,…

Grateful for Growth Campaign: Give toward the Financial Aid program

Watch Video During last year’s giving campaign, a 2nd-grade student responded to the Lord’s prompting in his heart and gave a donation so that “more people could come to the school and have a good time and be happy.” Acts 20:35 says, “It is more blessed to give than receive,” a value we pray is written on the hearts of all students at Arma Dei Academy. The founding families began Arma Dei believing that a quality Christian education should be available to every family who is committed to raising their children to have a thorough Christian worldview, regardless of income. During…

YEAR-END GIVING CAMPAIGN HAS BEGUN!

Arma Dei Academy Families and Friends, How will you remember 2020? As much of the world eagerly awaits its close, Arma Dei Academy celebrates as we recount the faithfulness and abundant blessings of the LORD. We are incredibly grateful. Unlike millions of children around the country, the students of Arma Dei still enter the “wardrobe doors” each morning. For a few hours each day, the challenges and distractions of the world are shut out, and the growing, shaping, and forming of the heart and mind continues. Students learn to view the world through a broader lens; one that traces the fingerprints…

Grateful for Growth

The start of a new decade, marked by 2020, has certainly not unfolded the way any of us anticipated. Between the pandemic, wildfires, and a challenging election year, it is easy to become overwhelmed and discouraged. However, Paul reminds us in Colossians 3:17, “whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” When the Lord Jesus becomes the lens through which we labor, we cannot help but look back and give thanks with grateful hearts for all He has done.Since the humble beginnings of Arma Dei…

Arma Dei Academy’s Portrait of a Graduate

Why a Portrait of a Graduate? Beginning with the end in mind, we sought to determine what an Arma Dei 12th grade graduate should look like. The ideal graduate of a classical Christian school should be marked by a noticeable refinement of manner and intellect. He will be first and foremost committed to his Christian purpose in life, and will love and live the Christian virtues. He will be competent in language, mathematics, natural philosophy (science), philosophy, and theology, and be prepared and interested in studying them further. He will think well, with Christian presuppositions in all areas of his life.…

Teaching Science from a Biblical Worldview by Dr. Ault

Matthew 22:37 And he [Jesus] said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” Training children’s hearts, souls, and minds to love the Lord means that they grow to acknowledge him in all of creation and everyday life. This applies to every subject taught, every game played, every word spoken. This is the highest aim of Christian educators and parents and is, in essence, a biblical worldview. The great Dutch prime minister and theologian Abraham Kuyper stated, “Oh, no single piece of our mental world is…
