Classical Studies for Christian Students

Christ and the Rich Young Man
“Come, follow Me.” (Matthew 19:21)


The Classical Liberal Arts Academy works to “research, restore, publish and teach the classical liberal arts”. Throughout history, this was the only course of studies recommended by wise men for students pursuing wisdom and happiness. In fact, we argue that the failures of modern education and unraveling of western civilization has for its cause the abandoning of the classical liberal arts in the 1600s, when the “Scientific Method” was invented and promoted as a replacement for the “Scholastic” or “Aristotelean” method.

We provide self-paced online courses in all subjects for students of all ages. Our program can be used to enrich a modern homeschool or private school program, or as a life-long private study program for adults. Course enrollment includes all necessary study materials, lesson videos, graded assignments, online assessments, records and expert support. For enrollment information, please see our Online Catalog. If you’re interested in taking a look behind the scenes, you may use our Sample Student account to do so.

Video Instruction

In 2020-2021, we are publishing instructional videos for students in the Classical Liberal Arts Academy. These videos are intended to support (not replace) our online lessons and have already been drawing enthusiastic feedback from parents and students. Feel free to enjoy the colection below and subscribe to our YouTube channel for updates.

Free Book on Classical Christian Education

Are you a Christian looking for real classical studies? Do you dream of giving your children, or yourself, the same education enjoyed by the saints throughout history? If so, then your search is over. The Classical Liberal Arts Academy is the solution, but there’s a lot to learn.  True classical education is nothing like modern schooling. Fortunately, you learn all you need to get started in the book “Understanding Classical Catholic Education“, written by our headmaster, William C. Michael. 

This book has helped me to understand the idea of classical education far better than anything I’ve come across in my 20+ years of homeschooling!
