Embarking on a Journey of Educational Excellence: 

Why We Founded Summit Classical Academy

As founding family members and current board members of Summit Classical Academy, We are thrilled to share the story behind our school’s inception and the driving force behind our commitment to classical Christian education.

Classical Christian Education was not a novel concept to our family. We were very familiar with this type of education from a previous classical Christian school our daughter attended. The Classical Christian education approach is rooted in centuries of proven success, emphasizing the classics, critical thinking, and moral virtues. Classical Christian education has stood the test of time because it equips students with the tools they need to excel academically and thrive in an ever-changing world. 

When the school our daughter attended from August 2017 to mid November 2019 decided to eliminate the classical element from their curriculum, we decided to search for it elsewhere.  We soon discovered that what we had grown to love and desire in this type of education for our daughter didn’t exist in the north area, so if we wanted to continue this path of classical Christian education, we would have to move.  While that was definitely an option and we could make a move if we needed to, God stopped us and called us to consider exploring what it would look like to start a Classical Christian school. So we did! In November 2019 SCA was born. This quest involved a deep dive into the realm of classical Christian education, with our family,  the Miller family and Mrs. Fraser immersing ourselves in literature, curriculum, participating in conferences, and making visits to other classical Christian schools for inspiration.

Initially, we established a homeschool co-op comprised of seven students. This cautious beginning was a stepping stone towards our ambitious goal of launching a full-time school by the fall of 2020. 

Summit Classical Academy was born out of a shared vision among our founding families. We realized that the need for a classical Christian education extended far beyond the boundaries of our own families. It was a profound calling from God to establish Summit Classical Academy not just as an educational institution but as a ministry dedicated to serving not only our own children but also the broader community in the northern Denver area.

SCA is more than just a place of learning for our daughter; it’s our community and in some ways, our church. We believe that strong character, respect for others, and a sense of purpose are integral to a child’s development. Summit Classical Academy is not only a place for academic growth but also a place where lifelong friendships are forged and core values are instilled.

As founding family members and board members, we are embarking on a journey of educational excellence. We are committed to providing the best possible education to our students, nurturing their creativity, and fostering a love for learning that is centered on a biblical world view.. Together with parents, we are forging fierce warriors, Christian leaders of today and for tomorrow.

We invite you to join us on this exciting journey. Summit Classical Academy is not just a school; it’s a place where dreams are nurtured, minds are enriched, and futures are shaped. Together, we are laying the foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

Thank you to all the families who have joined us, we are thrilled you are part of the SCA Family.

The Benefits of a Classical Christian Education

Classical Christian education is an approach to education that combines the wisdom of the classical education model with a Christian worldview. This method of education emphasizes the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty and is rooted in the belief that God is the source of all knowledge and wisdom. In this blog post, we will explore some of the benefits of classical Christian education.

Fosters a Love of Learning

  1. Classical Christian education emphasizes the love of learning. Students are taught to value knowledge for its own sake and to approach their studies with curiosity and enthusiasm. They learn how to ask questions, seek answers, and engage with ideas in a way that inspires a lifelong love of learning.

Emphasizes Character Formation

  1. Classical Christian education emphasizes virtue. Students are taught to embrace the character of Christ such as integrity, courage, humility, and gratitude. They learn to recognize their responsibilities to God, family, and society and to act accordingly. This emphasis on character development produces well-rounded individuals who are equipped to lead fulfilling lives and contribute positively to society.

Encourages Critical Thinking

  1. Classical Christian education encourages critical thinking. Students are taught to engage with ideas in a rigorous and analytical way. They learn how to identify fallacies, weigh evidence, and construct logical arguments. This emphasis on critical thinking produces individuals who are able to make informed decisions, communicate effectively, and think creatively.

Provides a Rich Cultural Heritage

  1. Classical Christian education provides a rich cultural heritage. Students study the great works of literature, art, music, and philosophy from the Western tradition. They learn about the historical figures who have shaped our world and the ideas that have shaped our culture. This exposure to the cultural heritage of the West provides students with a deep appreciation for the achievements of the past and an understanding of their own place in the world.

Integrates Faith and Learning

  1. Classical Christian education integrates faith and learning. Students are taught to see the world through the lens of a Christian worldview. They learn how to apply biblical principles to all areas of their lives, including their studies. This integration of faith and learning provides students with a coherent and meaningful framework for understanding the world around them.

These benefits produce well-rounded individuals who are equipped to lead fulfilling lives and contribute positively to society. If you are considering an education for your child or for yourself, classical Christian education is a model that is definitely worth exploring.   Additionally, we have The Good Soil report that shows significant differences for alumni of classical Christian Schools. ACCS students are more prepared academically, more traditional in their views, think more independently, and are more influential than those from other school backgrounds.
