Educating and Cultivating Servants for Christ

The School of Classics chair will oversee the School of Classics program and teach a series of high school elective courses exploring ideas from the great books that shaped western civilization as part of the Omnibus curriculum. The courses will combine the study of history, literature, and theology, but will also allow students to participate in the full breadth of the CVCA curriculum. The school of classics teacher will be responsible to develop the curriculum at CVCA and perform any other non-teaching duties as assigned by administration.
