The School

Cultivating Classically-trained Christian Leaders

The Garden School’s classical approach arose out of the desire to provide a challenging, high-quality education that would provide emotional, intellectual and spiritual nurturing for the children. Classes are designed around a study of the flow of western history from Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and Israel to the present day. We use an integrated, unit-study approach that emphasizes experiential education and classic literature.

Each year a drama or musical production is carefully selected to crystallize the learning in the historic time studied. The whole school community is involved in all areas of production, including set construction, costumes, painting, music, lighting, etc… The play also reinforces public-speaking and team-building skills.

Latin, formal logic and rhetoric classes are a hallmark of the older students’ program. Additionally, a survey of the humanities is an integral part of completing this well-rounded education. By exploring the great classics and thinkers down through the ages, our students learn to think more deeply about the world and themselves.

Parents are given a curriculum guide with suggested resources and receive training and support to tutor their children at home. Specialists and tutors are available when needed.

We are a two-day-a-week private school.  Our school days are Mondays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. at our New Castle campus with a full third day option on Tuesday.
