They spent a couple of years looking for a school that would give their daughter and two sons the education that they had received in Idaho. They enrolled their children in Christian schools and in classical charter schools; however they were disappointed that they couldn’t find a school that blended both a classical pedagogy and a Christian worldview. They began to think that they might need to start their own Christian classical school, but they didn’t know where to start.
In June of 2017, Doyle and Kathy Troyer also moved from Boise to Phoenix. Kathy taught in Christian classical schools for over 18 years – the last 7 at The Ambrose School. All of Doyle’s six children attended Ambrose and five had graduated. Kathy hoped to find a Christian classical school where she could continue teaching children to love God and learning. However, she also had a difficult time finding the right place. Many of her friends suggested that she start a new school, at which she flatly replied, “There’s no way that I can start a school!”
Our story has just started. We have a vision, an understanding of the Christian classical pedagogy and philosophy, a curriculum, and experience. We are currently trusting God for a location, start-up finances, students, and teachers. How would you like to be a part of writing this story?
To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power. – 2 Thessalonians 1:11
