Education, as classically conceived, is not primarily for citizenship, or for making money, or for success in life, or for learning a trade, or for a veneer of "culture." Its primary objective is not even to make us culturally literate. The primary purpose of education is not to produce something outside oneself, but to cultivate something within.
Its telos (or purpose) is to help us become more fully human, more fully attentive to God and the things of God, more creative and wonder-filled, more discriminating and wise, more virtuous intellectually and morally – that is, more true, good, and beautiful.
Therefore, at the center of BCS is the Gospel of Christ which frees us to know the truth, to act according to the good, and to love and create the beautiful. We are seeking parents who profess and live out this Gospel as active members in the local church, Christ's bride.
Classical Christian Education is the cultivation of wisdom and virtue by nourishing the soul on truth, goodness, and beauty by means of the seven liberal arts and the four sciences so that, in Christ, the student is enabled to better know, glorify, and enjoy God and his creation, and is able to lead others to do the same. (Andrew Kern)
Christianity naturally leads to classical education because Christianity teaches respect for the mind as part of the image of God in man, for the world as God's intelligent, designed creation, and respect for human words and creation…In turn, classical education leads to Christianity because classical education seeks all truth for its own sake, and is open to all Truth.
