Greetings Creekside Family, 

For over 20 years we have seen God bless our church and in turn we continue striving to reach the world with Jesus, one person at a time. God has always faithfully opened doors for us to do His work. One of the earliest dreams and vision has been to expand the Kingdom through adding a Classical Christian Academy on property. 

We invite you to begin praying now about this important decision and that God will continue to reveal His path and will to His people. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do and he will show you which path to take.”  Amen!

God bless you all and we look forward to seeing you there!
The Elders of Creekside Christian Church

Four Myths of Classical Education

Myth #1: Classical Education was fine back then, but we need modern education in a modern world.


Fact: Classical education teaches students facts, provides them with logical tools to use those facts and perfects the student’s ability to relate those facts to others. This fundamental skill set is more valuable today than it has ever been. The process of teaching students to think extends far beyond filling their heads with knowledge. Modern education, to varying degrees, has succeeded in teaching facts and some skills. Classical education helps students draw original, creative, and accurate conclusions from facts and then formulate those conclusions into logical and persuasive arguments.


Modern subjects based in science and technology are taught in classical schools, through classical methods. Parents who are exposed to classical education recognize that its “back to the basics” approach contrasts with the distractions of modern education. Is the classical method applicable in a modern technological age? 


The technology we have today was invented, in large part, by the classically educated. Man inhabited the earth for thousands of years without developing technology until the last two hundred years. It is no coincidence that the groundwork for these achievements was laid within the last 400 years when classical education was at its height. Classical education teaches children the timeless skills of thinking, reasoning, logic, and expression. Our subject matter is as up-to-date as that found in any modern school. We simply add a depth and dimension through this time-tested method, which is unseen in most modern schools.

Myth #2: My child is not intelligent enough to attend a classical school.

Fact: Many parents assume that a classical education is only accessible to “gifted” children. In fact, all children benefit greatly from the classical method. Until this century, there was no substantial alternative. If you were educated in Western society prior to 1850 you were classically educated, regardless of your level of intelligence.


As is usually the case, myths start from a spark of reality. Many parents will observe the classroom and curriculum and assume the children are abnormally bright. Classical education challenges children and is uniquely able to leverage their natural abilities during different stages of childhood. In short, we will take ordinary children and deliver extraordinary results by employing proven methods tested for centuries.

Myth #3: Classical education is too extreme.

Fact: This myth usually stems from the fact that classical education is very different from today’s conventional education. Parents are rightfully skeptical of anything that differs so boldly from the norm. However, classical education was the norm 100 years ago. Almost all of the world’s great authors, scientists, statesmen, and politicians were classically educated.


Conventional education has taken an experimental approach to educating our children over the past four decades. This constant state of change in education creates an environment where anything “traditional” seems extreme. Classical education provides a basic structure upon which we can build effective, successful students. We are not advocating an experiment. Rather, we are seeking a return to a system that was proven effective for over 1,000 years.

Myth #4: Classical education is unnecessarily difficult.

Fact: Children enjoy learning. They are wired for it. Assuming that a child will not be able to succeed in a challenging environment is tempting, but simply untrue.


A common assumption is that a demanding curriculum results in unhappy children. As adults, learning new things can be uncomfortable. However, most children are fascinated by what they learn at Classical Education schools. The excitement of students learning Latin beams as they become able to converse with one another in a language that most adults do not understand. The rich and complex texture of classical literature is strangely amplified by youth. Science and the history of Western Civilization come alive for those who hunger to know about their world.


The spark of truth in Myth #4 may lie in student grading at Classical Education school and the philosophy on grading. As public-school grade point averages continue to edge upward (even though our national standardized test scores related to other countries continue to be disappointing), parents of students in classical schools find that “C” truly means their child is doing average work in a particular subject. It is important that grading standards be upheld and that students earn their marks. This can create some frustration among students who are accustomed to achieving “easy A’s” in other schools.
