Why Christian Education?

Christian Worldview

Everyone has a worldview, a set of beliefs that answer the most important questions of life. Genesis Classical Academy guides students through these questions and examines the answers provided by God in His Word. Older students compare the Bible’s claims to other worldviews. This honest, guided approach allows young people to graduate knowing what they hold true, why they believe it, and how to engage others.


In a non-denominational Christian atmosphere, students come to understand their true identity as brothers and sisters in Christ, mature in their God-given talents, and begin to walk in their own special destiny.

Knowledge, Wisdom, and Virtue

Knowledge that is not tethered to a moral compass is insignificant at best, or dangerous at worst. Students at Genesis Classical Academy are encouraged not only to acquire knowledge, but to grow in wisdom and virtue.

St. Augustine defined virtue as “rightly ordered love” (City of God XV.22.) All good gifts are given to us by God, but are to be loved and valued in their proper order.  The highest good is God Himself, and all the gifts of His creation are meant to lead us back to Him, our highest love. 


“Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.”

 – C. S. Lewis

A Nurturing Environment

Every human is “fearfully and wonderfully made,” created in God’s image and likeness. At Genesis Classical Academy, we recognize and encourage students to develop and mature in their unique, God-given talents and to use those gifts for the good of the community.


“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”

Psalm 139:13-14

Prayer and Service

Prayer is an integral part of an authentic Christian life. Both community and individual prayer are woven throughout the day, encouraging students to cultivate an intimate relationship with God, and to live according to His will, inspired and animated by the Holy Spirit.

Even though He is God, Jesus modeled servant leadership for His followers. “For even the Son of Man came not to serve, but to be served, and to give His life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45 

We aim to follow the example of Jesus and give our students opportunities to serve others in our school, our community, and throughout the world.

With the help of parents, grandparents and area citizens, we envision a rare and rich educational alternative built on the Gospel of Jesus Christ and offering a righteous way of living. We strive to become light and salt for our region through the nurture and admonition of our greatest blessing – children.
