Biblically Integrated Education

Acknowledging Christ’s preeminence in all things.

Knox Classical School is built on the truth that Christ’s sovereignty is evident across all realms of learning, encompassing both academic and personal spheres.  Christian educators who adhere to classical education principles affirm that God stands as the origin and culmination of all conceivable knowledge.  Every facet of existence finds its unity at a singular point—having been brought into being and sustained by Jesus Christ.  That’s why our school seal bears Colossians 1:17 —

“He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” — Col. 1:17

A biblical perspective thus permeates every subject and theme at Knox Classical School, with the Bible seamlessly running as an integral thread throughout our curriculum.  Students will learn to perceive every strand of thought, historical event, and facet of the natural world as an extension of the work of Jesus Christ.  This approach equips students to adeptly navigate the moral and spiritual dilemmas that life invariably presents.  They internalize the sentiment expressed by Paul in Corinthians—subject every thought to the authority of Christ (2 Cor. 10:5).  In so doing, we pray that students will grasp the enduring and exquisite truth of redemption.

“We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.” — 2 Cor. 10:5

As teachers facilitate Socratic discussions, our students will delve into profound theological queries, seeking answers to the many "whys" that students do—and should—ponder.  These important questions will become the focal point for thought and reflection, no matter whether they come up during theology studies or math class, and each primary text will be illuminated by parallel examination of relevant scriptures.  We trust that our school will be marked by faculty and students joyfully encountering the living God as they search for wisdom like hidden treasure (Prov. 2:4) in every subject. 

“ … if you seek for it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.” — Prov. 2:4–5
