A New School in Lake Worth: Classical Christian Academy of the Palm Beaches

Bonnie Fanelli, the founder of this new school, sent me a very nice note the other day. So I'll return the pleasure and encourage my readers who are interested to attend a meeting tomorrow, Friday 3/27 at 7:00 to learn more. The location for the meeting is 1402 2nd Ave North here in the City of Lake Worth.

This is a Christian School and they state their mission this way:
We are a K-5 school offering a distinctly Classical and Christian education. We incorporate the Trivium to teach students using their God-given abilities according to their age. The results are graduates who can defend what they believe and reach their maximum academic capabilities for the glory of God.
What's special about this particular school is this: they're not looking for a handout from the taxpayers. 

Certainly, if you're a reader of my blog you know how disturbed I am with a proposal to have a Charter School in Lake Worth teach "the Classics". Taxpayer money to teach ancient languages is absurd and thankfully our Palm Beach County School Board agrees.

However, this school, the Classical Christian Academy of the Palm Beaches is standing firm to their principles and that is something everyone should appreciateregardless of anyone's personal opinion on the value of a classical education.

I won't be able to attend their meeting but would very much appreciate any feedback.

Bonnie, best of luck to you and your new school here in our wonderful City of Lake Worth!
