Classical Studies/History - HOLY TRINITY
“Those who do not possess a classical education are prisoners of their own time. To know and be interested only in the now means being incapable of evaluating or appreciating even that.” -Jude Dougherty


Holy Trinity wants to prepare our students to not only read about the formation of the United States of America, but also to read what the Founders of this nation read.


In Classical Studies, students study Greek mythology and Greek and Roman history and literature every year, gradually deepening their knowledge and understanding of the roots of Western civilization.


Like Latin, Classical Studies was part of the foundation of a good education up until the 20th century. The Founding Fathers of this country were well versed in Classical Studies and its influence can be found throughout the architecture, government, law, and culture of our nation.


All of the issues that we struggle with in the modern world—economic, political, religious, and social—are present in the ancient world in their simplest form. In Greece and Rome the perennial problems of the human condition can be seen at their beginning, while it is still possible to grasp them, to understand them, and to really see to the heart of the matter.


Meanwhile, in Christian Studies, students will see God’s work in remedying these perennial problems through the sending of His Son.


The Classical Studies Book List utilized at Holy Trinity Classical Christian School covers a breadth of knowledge.
