Classical Christian Education
A Classical Christian education at Windsor Christian Academy equips students to become lifelong learners.
Classical – We use time-tested educational methods to teach the classic works of literature, the history of the world, strong math and science curricula, and the arts. Our students start taking Latin in kindergarten. If you would like to learn more about classical education, I recommend reading Dorothy Sayers’s essay “The Lost Tools of Learning.” (It is available on the Kindle app or can be read in its entirety on a number of websites.)
Christian – Jesus Christ is the center of our curriculum. Each grade has daily Bible class, and the school gathers for chapel each week. But it doesn’t end there: each subject is taught from the perspective that all truth is God’s truth. We seek to teach students the critical thinking skills of a classical education with the hope that this will allow them to follow Paul’s direction to believers: “Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:2, ESV).
School – Windsor offers a full-day program of instruction for kindergarten through eighth grade students. We know our curriculum will give the tools that each student needs to be a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ and it is our prayer that each student will truly be able to be “transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:2 ESV).
At WCA, our philosophy is to teach children in the ways they naturally want to be taught. The children are taught how to learn with the goal of producing proactive learners.
In the early elementary years, we strive to ensure that each student learns how to read using a multi-sensory phonics approach to reading. Each subject is masterfully integrated into the others thus unifying all that is being taught.
The Chester County Intermediate Unit provides our students with a reading specialist and a speech and language therapist. Their services are available to any child who needs their assistance. This service is free of charge and is an exceptional asset to our program.
