Why Classical Education?

The pursuit of the good, the true, and the beautiful is good for everyone.

Cincinnati Classical Academy provides a time-tested, content-rich curriculum in the classical liberal arts and sciences, with instruction in moral character and civic virtue.  We aim to prepare students for life, not just for college and career, through formation of the will to desire what is good, true, and beautiful. We rely on teachers, not digital devices, to teach, inspire, and form our students. We use primary sources and classic literature so that students can converse with and learn from the greatest thinkers who shaped Western culture and institutions.
