Christian Classical education is powerful, proven, and purposeful education.

Faith Christian School, located in Roanoke, VA, is a distinctly Christian and distinctly Classical school which prepares your children for what lies ahead. There are many schools that offer a biblically centered Christian education, but Faith Christian School is the only school in the Roanoke Valley that is both Christian and Classical.

Christian Classical education is...

Christian, because:

  • We desire that your child will grow in a personal relationship with Christ.
  • We hold to foundational principles of Christian belief (read our statement of faith).
  • We teach that God is the author of all life; therefore, everything we study gives insight into the nature and character of God.
  • We prepare your child to be in the world and not of it.
  • We work to provide a safe, caring environment where your child will flourish.
  • We seek, at an age appropriate level, to equip your child to engage the world and culture in godly, redemptive ways and to discern what is true, good, and beautiful.

Classical because:

  • We follow a proven model of education that for over 2,000 years produced some of the finest theologians, statesmen, composers, inventors, artists, adventurers, and influencers the world has ever known.
  • Our approach does not change with the most recent educational fad or experiment.
  • Our goal is that students will understand rather than simply memorize.
  • We teach students how to engage new material on their own, to reason well, and to communicate persuasively. 
  • We require students to work hard, to think clearly, and to engage actively in learning.  These skills prepare our graduates to take on the challenges life brings.
  • We cultivate in our students humility and confidence.
