OVERVIEW Auburn Classical Academy (ACA) is a classical, Christian, private K-8 school located in East Central Alabama. Our educational approach is founded upon a classical Christian framework with a Charlotte Mason influence. As Christ is the Truth, all education rightly leads to knowledge of Him. ACA is actively searching for a candidate who views classical education through the lens of the Gospel. Candidates must understand classical methodology, as well as possess the ability to lead, manage, and operate the daily routines of our school according to its philosophy: ACA teaches and upholds traditional Christian morality and the Holy Scriptures as the divinely inspired word of God and cannot be separated from history, literature, mathematics, science, or any other academic discipline. We believe the family is a cherished institution given to us by God. It is the parents’ privilege to train their children at home and to teach them their beliefs. We seek to partner with parents in this endeavor. We are classical, meaning that we employ the time-tested method of the Trivium (Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric). Our curriculum is designed to inspire students to appreciate and understand the intellectual tradition of Christendom and the ancient world, and to see the acquisition of knowledge and wisdom as components of a lively Christian faith. Our genuine dedication to forming well-educated, academically successful students of sound character is apparent at every level of work. Students are carefully taught to think logically and express themselves well. We strive to create an environment which is conducive to study and charitable interactions between students, parents, and teachers. We provide students the tools for life-long learning. We aim to teach children how to think, not what to think.
