Why Classical Education?

We as parents and educators are constantly asked, Why Classical Education? Besides that it is proven, not a trend, and been around for thousands of years – there are many reasons why Classical Education is considered by many the best way to educate a child. One such educator, Jody Capehart, has a great synopsis of Classical education.

Additionally, we encourage you to read more about classical Christian education by checking out Dorothy Sayers’ “The Lost Tools of Learning,” Douglas Wilson’s “Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning and Repairing the Ruins: The Classical and Christian Challenge to Modern Education,” and Susan Wise Bauer’s “The Well-Educated Mind.” (You can get them used on Amazon for a great deal – be sure to use amazonsmile.com and put in Arma Dei Academy as your non-profit – we receive credits from your purchase.)
