Life Outcomes of Classical Christian Education Graduates

Good Soil - A Comparative Review At Arma Dei Academy we aim to graduate students who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding; who reason persuasively and articulate precisely; who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in light of the Scriptures; and who do so in joyful submission to God. Over the past eight years we have successfully prepared and launched graduates into their high school and college years, where they are actively becoming intelligent and thoughtful leaders, continuing their pursuit of a purposeful life marked by Truth.  Not only have we witnessed the fruit of…

Shabbat Blessing

Christian classical education aims to educate students with experiences that integrate the information poured into their minds with their soul. History came alive for the second-grade students who have been following the Israelites exodus from Egypt through their wanderings in the wilderness as they make their way to the promised land. While the Israelites were camped at Mt. Sinai, God gave Moses The Ten Commandments. The fourth Commandment instructs the Israelites to observe the Sabbath and keep it holy. In the Jewish faith, a Shabbat (Hebrew word for Sabbath) blessing is performed at nightfall on Friday to signify the beginning of…

Kingdom Values Are Upside Down From The World’s Values By Principal Jen Wenger

Kingdom values are upside down from the world’s values is a statement that is often made by the pastor of our church. This has also become a mantra in the Wenger home. As believers, the Christmas season highlights this truth and the countercultural nature of our faith. While the world tells us our desires can be fulfilled by abundance, the Lord declares, “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God” (Lule 6:20). As our students (and sometimes we) feverishly write Christmas lists, Jesus reminds us that, “it is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts…

Countercultural by Aaron Denlinger – Dean of Student Culture

The unique culture that exists at Arma Dei Academy is not, in fact, a product of any effort on our part to be countercultural per se. It is not, in other words, a product of persistent crankiness or contrariness in relation to present-day Western thought and practices. It is, rather, a product of persistent efforts on the part of Arma Dei’s faculty and staff to glorify God by providing an excellent classical Christian education founded upon a biblical worldview, an education that equips students to live purposefully and intelligently in service to God and others. Our school culture, to put the…
