What is Classical Education?The Master's Class puts emphasis on studying the ancient Greeks and Romans, because of their great advancement in science, technology, the arts, government, war, law, philosophy and the overall human condition. We focus on these two, among other great civilizations, because there is so much to learn and to compare and contrast with our own country. The Greeks and Romans appreciated life; longed to find, see, and create beauty; and pursued a higher objective Truth. The Master's Class strives to relate these ideals to our students, so that they can one day change the world as did the people of these great civilizations of the past.
What is Christian Education?The Master's Class believes the Bible is the source of Truth. We strive to pursue this Truth with everything we have, and we want this passion for Truth to be reflected in our students. The Bible contains a set of values that far outweigh anything of this world, and we long to teach these values of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control to our students. We do this by learning about the Bible itself, memorizing Scripture, praying multiple times daily, and emphasizing the teachings of the Word in our everyday life.
Why do you teach Latin?We teach Latin, starting at a young age, first to help students with their English. English is a Latin based language (blended with other languages), so by learning Latin, we have seen that it helps their English. Latin has an interesting way of conjugating verbs and declining nouns and adjectives by actually changing the word rather than word order, like English. It is difficult to understand or pinpoint parts of a sentence (subject, direct object, indirect object, verb, adverb, adjective, prepositions, etc.) in English because it changes so much and it depends on word order. However, in Latin, the ending of the word changes to match tense, person, number, case, etc. and it is more consistent than English. In addition, Latin is the basis of many European languages such as, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese. Therefore, if a student learns Latin from a young age and becomes comfortable with it, learning another one of these languages will be astronomically easier.
Why do students have to wear uniforms?Uniforms are a great way for students to look past outer appearance and into the character of a person when communicating with their peers. In the modern world, there is an unfortunate reality where people make friends with others based on their socioeconomic status, fashion, and over all style based on outward appearance. We want to encourage our students to make friends who will build them up, encourage them, and speak life into them, which are all qualities that must be found when looking further into a person's character. We also want to instill in our students a sense of professionalism. We want our students used to being presentable, so when they became adults and seek for a career, they will know how to present themselves in a professional way, inevitably increasing their odds for gaining employment.
