Classical Education Studies (CES)

Professor Ford, Dean of Worldview Studies

The Classical College prepares students to serve in classical schools as teachers or administrators. The student continues their rich classical school experience by deepening their understanding of the implications of biblical truth in forming and expressing that truth a coherent worldview. Though the Trivium is not exactly replicable on a college level, this program does emphasize biblical foundations, the goal for accurate understanding, interpreting and expressing biblical truth in a rhetorically successful way, and a commitment to the personal Lordship of Christ in one’s life and in the world of ideas.
