How to Teach a Classical Christian Education to Your Children

Mar 16, 2008
Classical Christian education was the foundation for schools in early American history. Most teachers or instructors were ministers who were educated in classical languages, Protestant theology, and literature.

So, students study the Bible in its original Hebrew and Greek languages and other classics in Greek.

Classical Christian education has a way of turning out students who are amazing leaders and visionaries. The reason is because this form of education was so rigorous and challenging.

Sadly, the current educational system in the nation has dishonored the value of this commodity. With the irrational and classless changes that the current system makes, academic degrees show nothing about a person's thinking abilities.

Other educational models of the past, such as Classical Christian education, have a foundation in working hard and acquiring book knowledge.

If you think about it, the ability to use reason, analysis, and perspective comes from reading. In Classical Christian education, this scholarly ability is developed in order to understand and apply the Scriptures.

In Colonial America, there was so much more than just learning Christian teachings along with the doctrine and faith. It was just as much about understanding and classifying reality through the teachings and principles defined in the Bible. It was through the Holy Scriptures that colonials approached social theories, philosophy, and education.

Classical Christian education has been alive and well in America since the early 1900s. It's rooted not only in Christian values and principles, but also in high academic standards. The results have been phenomenal.

Is it possible to repeat the same results in this age? How can we teach using this method when today's teachers aren't even trained to instruct students using the classical method? To begin with, we must make do with what we have.

We can teach from the Bible. We can teach from centuries of classic texts. There are great works of literature, history, science, and theology that are translated into English.

While it might seem as though Classical Christian education is outdated, the design is sound; it can produce a student who has the reasoning and analytical ability to read a profound book, then write a compelling essay about it. And more than anything else, it is designed to lead students to God.
