The mission of Classical Preparatory School is to pursue academic excellence and character enrichment through rigorous, content-rich curriculum, imparting to our students the ability to excel and a desire to continuously pursue learning throughout their lives.
Rhetoric School Teachers develop within students the intellectual and personal habits and skills upon which responsible, independent and productive lives are built, in the firm belief that such lives are the basis of a free and just society. Our teachers accomplish this through the creation of lesson plans, inspiration, and constructive criticism to promote character development and habit formation. They instruct students on subjects such as science, literature, history, and math, in order to create a well-rounded, comprehensive, classical instructional program.
