Vanderbilt Law Professor Warns Parents

It’s no surprise that young people are being indoctrinated against Christianity at all levels of academia.  We are grateful that once again, classical Christian education is specifically named by Dr. Carol Swain as a way of training students to think Christianly before they face the pressures of the left in college.

The field of astrophysics seeks to understand how the universe began and has evolved, and whether other planets have the potential to sustain life. All important questions to consider, and ones that raise further questions about faith and the existence of a creator.

Classical schools and homeschools dominate National Mock Trial

Classical schools and homeschools dominate National Mock Trial

In May, the National Mock Trial Championships in Boise, Idaho crowned a new national champion– a group of homeschoolers from Iowa.  The competition draws schools from over 40 states and a number of US territories, as well as South Korea.  The location rotates between US states and takes the top team from each state.  This year, two classical Christian schools participated from Idaho, a privilege awarded to the host state when an odd number of teams enters the competition.  The two teams– from The Ambrose School in Boise/ Meridian and the northern team Logos from Moscow– represented the first and second place teams from Idaho.  The teams placed 6th and 7th respectively in the national competition.

Given the number of schools involved, it’s notable that two classical Christian schools were in the top 10 teams.  Classical education has proven to prepare students for success in a number of academic competitions.
