What is Christian Classical Education?
Caritas Academy offers an education that begins with the end in mind – the formation of a whole human person, who will mature, flourish, and bear fruit in every area of life; whose path is more than school, college, career – but rather a full and worshipful life that includes work, family, community, church, culture, and service.
“Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another.”
- G.K. Chesterton
Five Questions for Families
At Caritas, we want to ensure your child's academic excellence. We offer a balanced, rigorous, and Christ-centered classical education. Our passion for this model is fed by the eager, ambitious, disciplined, and creative minds of our students. Furthermore, we recognize that the best education links parents, educators and Christ in the full formation of a child. We are eager to have your child at Caritas. However, we want you to be just as confident that your child is the right fit for us. So, please, thoughtfully and prayerfully, consider these 5 questions.
Is Your Child Ready for Kindergarten?
Child development experts continue to disagree about the ‘right’ age for a child to start school, but there is an emerging belief that numerous other factors, not just chronological age, should be used as criteria for school entry.
As children grow, they develop at different rates so age may not be the best indicator of school readiness. You must consider all aspects of your child’s development because if they enter school before they are ready to cope, their chances of failure and low self-esteem increase dramatically. They can lose confidence and feel they can’t cope.
