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

FAITH CHRISTIAN SCHOOL, LOCATED IN ROANOKE, VA, IS A CHRISTIAN CLASSICAL SCHOOL.

What is Christian Classical Education?

For nearly a quarter of a century, Faith Christian has offered a distinctly Christian and distinctly Classical education that prepares our students for what lies ahead. Faith provides robust academics in a nurturing Christian environment.

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 here).
  • 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 yet 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 latest 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 both humility and confidence.
