The Classical Difference

Classical Collaboration

Since the dawn of time, the greatest and the most sacred institution known to man is that of the home. In the sovereignty and wisdom of God, it was the home, not the state or the school or even the church that was first created and divinely intended to become the cornerstone of all life. In this divinely established institution, He placed children to be cared for, shepherded, and tended. As G.K. Chesterton writes, “The most extraordinary thing in the world is an ordinary man and an ordinary woman and their ordinary children.”  

As we collaborate to educate our children, we must lean into the King’s design. As John Milton states, “The end then of learning is to repair the ruins of our first parents by regaining to know God aright, and out of that knowledge to love him, to imitate him, to be like him, as we may the nearest by possessing our souls of true virtue, which being united to the heavenly grace of faith makes up the highest perfection.” In our own personal lives and in the rearing of our children, we must as Ephesians 5:9-10 records, “Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true) and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.”
