They enrolled their daughter in a Christian school; however they were disappointed that they couldn’t find a school that blended both a classical pedagogy and a Christian worldview.
Kathy taught in Christian classical schools for over 18 years – the last 7 at The Ambrose School. She 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. She and Doyle felt that there was a great need for a new Christian classical school.
After many months of searching for a location and interested families, God brought Rene Arrowood and Patty Gregersen to the group. Their experience and passion lay in the hybrid model of combining classroom teaching with remote learning. Switching to this model opened up more opportunities and interest, and God provided a location on the campus of Chandler First Church of the Nazarene.
Caritas Academy was blessed to partner as sister schools with The Ambrose School and their hybrid model school, The Bridge Program. The staffs at those schools were, and continue to be, huge assets to the birth and success at Caritas.
Our story has just started. We have a vision, an understanding of the Christian classical pedagogy and philosophy, a curriculum, and experience. We continue to trust God for leading and provision. Our greatest desire is to glorify Him in all that we do.

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
