The Classical Liberal Arts Academy may look intimidating at first glance. The goals are very high and the standards necessary to pursue those goals must also be set and kept very high. The tools and resources we make available to students, parents and teachers are the most powerful available today. The program has a “no nonsense” feel to it that may make it feel a bit cold and detached. However, once we move past the philosophy and goals, tools and resources, we find a very intimate school community where students and parents have direct access to me and other staff members and tutors every day. I myself am a father of 10 Catholic children, so I’m not ignorant of the challenges of daily family life. In fact, I’d argue that, in the end, the CLAA is the most personal and supportive educational program to be found, that respects individual student and family schedules, that takes flexibility and affordability seriously, and that keeps the Christian faith at the center of everything we do–and encourages students to do the same. Yes, there is a lot to learn, but we’re here to help you with every step.
