The mission of Advent Lutheran Classical School is to train the heart, mind and habits of a child for undivided loyalty to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is achieved through exceptional education in the liberal arts tradition and Lutheran catechesis. 

What is Classical Education?

Classical Education is about being trained to intuitively perceive the Good, the True, and the Beautiful.

We find these in nature, in art, and in the Great Books of our Western Heritage. In a world today where there seems to be so much bad, falsehoods, and pure ugliness, we need people who can not only perceive the Good, the True, and the Beautiful but embody it. So, we examine, admire, and imitate the very best of what our heritage has to offer. From beautiful poetry to epic writings, to rich history and exquisite art, let us embark on a journey to know our Lord, who is the Source of all that which is Good, True, and Beautiful.

Why Classical Education?

We embrace Classical Education because it provides a truly exceptional education. Imagine an 8-year-old student who can recite the Gettysburg Address, several Psalms, and a plethora of Bible verses; a strong reader who grasps Aesop’s Fables, Shakespeare, and dozens of poems; who can decline Latin nouns and conjugate Latin verbs, and who is being imbedded with mathematical truths and rich history.

Now imagine a Lutheran school where this 8-year-old student is attending worship regularly, learning the Apostles’ Creed and the Lord’s Prayer. Imagine not just the knowledge at the disposal of this 8-year-old student, but his intuition and imagination. This is type of molding that will take place at Advent Lutheran School. This 8-year-old student is not the exception but the standard. Advent Lutheran is a school where students like this 8-year-old will be trained well and loved dearly.

Why Lutheran?

Our Lutheran Christian faith is central to Advent Lutheran School. The students will regularly participate in daily prayer, sing hymns, recite the Creed and the Lord’s Prayer and learn many scripture verses by heart. Students at Advent Lutheran will be instructed from a biblical worldview and will receive religious instruction in accord with the Bible and our Lutheran Confessions.
