Why classical Christian education?

 

"Isolating the student from large sections of human knowledge is not the basis of a Christian education.  Rather it is giving him or her the framework for total truth, rooted in the Creator's existence and in the Bible's teaching, so that in each step of the formal learning process the student will understand what is true and what is false and why it is true or false."

Francis Schaeffer
