St Augustines Classical Christian College

Is this Australia’s first ‘new breed’ classical Christian school?

Would love to see more of these…

Classical education involves understanding the present by learning about the past through history, philosophy, theology, literature, art, Latin, Greek, logic and rhetoric. Students see an integrated big picture of Western Culture from a Christian worldview – which has a strong moral code and traditionally a high benchmark of excellence and appreciation of beauty, as well as a foundational belief in absolutism; there is a right way and a wrong way. Maths and Science, reflecting God’s character, are also strongly integrated into this big picture, distinguishing classical education from a liberal arts education.

  1. Hi Wayne,

    I have noticed that you tweet and post frequently on Christian education from, what I would call, the more ‘fundamentalist’ end of the educational system.

    My question is about why you preference these over, say, public schools? I can see the benefit that might come from an education that is closer to my religious views but really lament the impact that withdrawing my kids from public schools would mean? I think my wife and I have decided on public schooling for our child/children. Interested in your thoughts . . .

  2. hi Bryan,

    Good questions… I’m hoping to post more on education this year…

    More to come!
