Overview

Overview

Cair Paravel Latin School says

Cair Paravel Latin School (CPLS) is a non-denominational classical Christian college preparatory school serving students from preschool to 12th grades.

Our Classical method of teaching is unique, but it is no experiment. Some of the greatest leaders and thinkers of Western civilization, from Aristotle to Thomas Jefferson, have been educated this way. A guiding principle for our dedicated faculty is that every child of God is capable of extraordinary achievements through classical training and cultivation of character. We believe that all education should be education that naturally leads students toward the good, the true, and the beautiful.

At CPLS, each and every student is challenged and inspired by the curriculum while being given the “toolkit” with which to further their learning and a inspire a passion for knowledge. Education is brought together in a convergence with Christ for the most rigorous Christian educational experience in the area.

Curriculum

CPLS is classical in its educational methodology, as distinguished by our embracing of the Trivium, a three-pronged approach to the grammar, and logic and rhetoric of each subject. Beginning with the grammar stage, students study and master the significant precepts, writers and thinkers of each discipline. Logic follows with the sound reasoning and the ordered relationship within and between subjects. Rhetoric then teaches and requires the clear and persuasive articulation of facts, ideas and relationships learned through written and oral presentations. A Biblical application of the Socratic Method complements the trivium to create a dynamic classroom environment for learning and students who have a desire and a passion to learn.

Mission Statement

To cultivate classically trained, life long learners, committed to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, who will enrich their community and God’s kingdom.
