Twice in the last week, new families, asked me what a classical Christian graduate looks like? Albeit, our academy educates only through eighth grade with students completing high school elsewhere, it begs a great question. And while just beginning our fifth year at Arma Dei Academy, stories of students I've taught in the past, educated at a classical Christian school, abound.
The classical Christian school graduate is one who has engaged in a lifetime of learning; and is excited about it! They are fully human or at least well on the way to becoming just that. They understand both the seen and the unseen world and their obligation to both; empathetic to the plight of those around them. Not fully enamored with the right job, the right car, the right home, their goals seem to focus on helping their neighbor, relishing and replicating the true, beautiful and good, and leaving the world a better place. Arma Dei Academy endeavors to fuel within each student the fire of lifelong learning and a passion for God.
