  1. Please excuse my ignorance, but exactly what is a “classical Lutheran high school”? How is it different from a “normal” high school. Lutheran or otherwise?

  2. Dear Mr. Gosling,

    We may enroll students for Latin next year, but this year we are sticking with our Omnibus class.

    Dear Mr. Hartung,

    A classical Lutheran high school differs from a normal high school in that the latter is defined by what “progressive education,” which seems the primary purpose of education as training for a vocation. A liberal (free) education focuses on character development through the study of the trivium and quadrivium. The trivium can be summed up as “grammar, logic and rhetoric,” grammar being learning the facts through extensive reading and study, logic meaning learning the Socratic method and how to ask the proper questions in investigating a matter, and finally rhetoric entailing expressing the truth in conversation, argument, discussion, research, oratory, etc.

    A student in a classical school then will learn much of what is learned in progressive and government/public schools, but he will focus on the classics of western civilization, from the Bible through Ancient Greece and Rome, and all the way into the modern era.

    The only thing a student who attends our high school might be deficient in when he graduates is feminist propaganda.

    The first schools in the Missouri Synod were classical, as were all the Concordias until the 1960’s began to change that. To the sources! Ad fontes.

    I hope this helps.
