Philosophy

Hunter Classical Christian School provides students with a positive environment that fosters a love of learning, laying the foundation for academic success. Our vision calls for a partnership between the school and the family. When parents and the school share the same core values, the net result is solid character development for the child and a strengthening of the whole family.

Classical

We embrace the Classical ideal of the educational trivium in order to help your child become a life-long learner. The trivium conducts children through each stage of their education, relying upon careful examination of human capacity and the accumulated wisdom of thousands of years to match educational challenges with the developmental ability of students. Children progress through the three stages of the trivium – grammar, logic, and rhetoric – to become thoughtful and capable individuals who are prepared to take on the challenges of their world.

Christian

Hunter Classical Christian School is non-denominational and takes its inspiration from the foundations of the Christian faith. Our understanding of God as our creator and redemption through Jesus Christ serves as a foundation for all of our teaching and conduct.

Our school partners with students, parents, and faith communities to promote the moral development of each child. A short list of the Judeo-Christian values that our school community emphasizes includes: moral behavior, character, respect, a strong work ethic, responsibility, and discipline.

Education

We understand that the role of a school is to educate, not to entertain students. It is incumbent upon teachers to teach and students to learn. In order to achieve this objective, we give students a foundation that will allow them to become critical thinkers over time. Teachers impart a base of knowledge in the grammar school years to provide students with information about which to think critically as they progress to the logic and rhetoric years. Reading from the Great Books and following a curriculum that maps out specific content ensures acquisition of core knowledge while guarding against content gaps and unintended repetition. We provide students with the necessary foundation to become thinkers who are prepared to address any challenge that the future presents.
