A Classical Education
Providence Classical Christian Academy is a school in St. Louis, Missouri, which offers a unique educational experience for students K-12. Inspired by the classical liberal arts, our vision for education strives to teach and form students as life-long learners, cultivating knowledge and skills, as well as wisdom and virtue as they grow in appreciation of what is good, what is true, and what is beautiful.
One distinctive feature of a classical education is a language arts program that places the classical Trivium of grammar, logic, and rhetoric at its center. Fundamental skills of both English and Latin are taught thoroughly in the early grades, preparing students for a more formal study of logic and critical thinking in the middle grades. This then equips students in the upper school to begin learning the art of rhetoric in writing and speaking that is both persuasive and eloquent.
Yet as a Christian school, all our efforts strain toward a single unifying goal and purpose. Desiderius Erasmus, that well known classical scholar of the Renaissance, said it well: “All studies, philosophy, and rhetoric are learned for this purpose: that we may know Christ and praise His glory. This is the end of all learning and eloquence."
Providence Classical Christian Academy is located at 5293 S. Lindbergh, St. Louis MO (minutes from the I-44 & 270 interchange, and the I-55 & 270 interchange). Providence is a member of the Association of Classical and Christian Schools (ACCS) and the American Classical League.
