Our Mission 
The Classical Academy's mission is two fold: to offer public-school educational choice to parents most of who could not otherwise afford such choice and to implement the following significant reforms:
Removal from the curricula all non-academic subjects
Every student required to take two language arts subjects and two math classes each year
A classical curriculum well proven for its educative powers
Scholastic policies which support high levels of academic learning
An educational climate compelling excellence in scholastic achievement
Behavioral standards critical to sound character formation
