Values

  • The gospel of Jesus Christ

  • Narrow doors, narrow hallways

  • Male leadership (church, home, government)

  • Parental ownership. Parents (not churches, schools, or governments) are ultimately responsible for the spiritual and intellectual training of their children.

  • Classical Christian Education (a biblical worldview)

  • Rigorous learning (even when it becomes harder in the logic and rhetoric years)

  • Winsomely passionate teachers

  • Parents who love to read and learn
