A New School Coming to Philly
My name is Ross Hatton and I am part of Philadelphia Classical School, we will be launching next September. We as a board are convinced Philadelphia needs more great schools, and have been meeting for over a year organizing and planning. This will be a school that has a strong emphasis in the arts, and learning through arts. A rich curriculum that stimulates the mind and imagination, stellar academics, a warm environment where children are not stuck in desks all day, and small classes where children can be known.
PCS is a Christian school and reflects the faith of the core team founders. Academic excellence with a Biblical world and life view is our goal. “Our commitment to a Christian worldview does not, however, force us into a narrow inquiry into the world around us. On the contrary, our faith in Jesus Christ helps us to confidently examine and affirm truth wherever it is found. For we know that all truth ultimately comes to us from God” (Veritas Academy).
Established classical schools generally read from a wide variety of original sources from Virgil to Nietzsche. It is our faith that pushes us from an individualistic view of the world and knowledge to one that seeks to enter the Great Conversation of history – to find our place amidst the community of great thinkers and writers that have gone before us and have reflected on what is good, what is true and what is beautiful.
Our faith leads us to knowing that the particulars in life are held together with purpose by a steadfast Universal. For more in depth statements of faith see Home :: liberti church. This school has emerged from the liberti communities and we affirm with them the historic church’s faith in Jesus and his redemptive work in the world.
In the next several months, we are planning some informal question and answer sessions at locations throughout the city. You can check out our (in process) website Philadelphia Classical School to read more about Philadelphia Classical school, and decide if it is a fit for your family. You can see below, and check out our website for other events and locations as well. Philadelphia Classical School Application packets will be ready sometime in November 2012 for the 2013-2014 academic year. We are starting with grades K-2 and adding a grade a year after that.
