At Logos Classical Academy, our mission is to provide a classical education with a Biblical worldview that equips students to live wisely with virtue and knowledge.
We aim to not only get students ready for college and the workforce, but to prepare them for life. One of the ways we do this is by emphasizing the tools of learning, a distinctive feature of classical education, so that students learn not simply what to think, but how to think. With these tools, they will be equipped to tackle every subject that God sets on their path, and will be able to think critically, and to communicate persuasively.
A different approach to
In keeping with the classical model of education, the curriculum of Logos focuses on instruction in knowledge, wisdom and virtue. Course work is designed to be a series of inter-related subjects where students will make connections between disciplines.
In our academically rigorous program, students will study and imitate history’s finest thinkers and ultimately be prepared for their roles as informed citizens, thinking Christians, and virtuous shapers of culture.

What Is a Classical Education?
Classical education belongs to the authoritative, traditional, and enduring stream of education begun by the Greeks and Romans, developed by the Church through the centuries, and renewed by contemporary educators. Through careful study of integrated subject matter students first gain knowledge and then, over time, begin to apply that knowledge to acheive understanding of the world around them. Classical education seeks to develop not only a mind, but a whole person, training students in faith, in virtue, and in knowledge.
Does that Mix with a Biblical Worldview?
We feel that a Classical education fits perfectly with a Biblical Worldview. The goal of Classical Christian education is to enable the student to better know, glorify, and enjoy God. As students gain knowledge, they do so with the Bible as the guiding source. In all areas of study students will see God’s plan and purpose for humanity and will, therefore, have a better understanding of who they are in relationship to a perfect, holy, just, and loving Creator. The end goal is not to simply acquire knowledge of who God is, but to apply that knowledge to all areas of life.
Knowledge, Wisdom, & Virtue
At Logos we seek to educate a whole child, not just a mind. For that reason, we follow the wisdom of 2 Peter 1:5 which says, “For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and your virtue with knowledge…” Our focus at Logos is to grow students simultaneously in all three areas to ensure the development of a complete person.
Our Course of Study
LCA course work is a series of interrelated subjects where students will make connections between disciplines. In the grammar pods (K-2nd or 3rd-6th), students are primarily tasked with gaining knowledge and developing a love of learning. During the logic stage (7th-9th), students shift their attention to making connections between subjects, developing the art of argument, and applying logic to their writing.
We serve children in kindergarten through 9th grade. Children are grouped into learning pods according to developmental stages. We have four learning pods: Kindergarten (4/5 year olds), Lower Grammar ( 1st-3rd), Upper Grammar (4th-6th) and Logic (7th-9th). We will seek to add a Rhetoric pod (10th-12th) in the future.
Our Humanities coursework includes a study of music and arts appreciation. Specialized instruction in the arts, sports, and other fields should be considered outside our (shortened) school hours. Our school days end at 2pm which allow time for private art/music lessons, or participation in community sports, drama, etc.
Families who are interested in attending Logos Classical Academy should submit an application. They will then be invited to a family interview. The family interview allows an opportunity for both school staff and the family to determine whether Logos is a right fit for the student. Upon completion of a successful interview and application, families will be notified of the school’s decision.
