  • Christian

    We teach that absolute truth exists, and all truth is God’s truth. Because of this, we seek to integrate all subjects with historical Christianity and the teachings of the Scripture. We provide a clear model of biblical Christian life and worldview to encourage every child to develop a genuine and meaningful relationship with God through the person of Jesus Christ.
  • Classical

    The Classical model is based on the centuries-old "Trivium" and the "Quadrivium", making up the seven Liberal Arts. Trivium is translated from Latin as “the place where three roads meet”.  It consists of the arts of the word: grammar, logic, and rhetoric.  The Quadrivium represents the arts of the number and is comprised of arithmetic (number in the abstract), geometry (number in space), music (number in time), and astronomy (number in space-time).

    Curriculum content is tailored to a child’s cognitive development by utilizing methods and subject matter which are appropriate for the age of the student and aligned with their age-related tendencies.
  • Collaborative

    In a Collaborative education model, the teacher and the parents partner together to educate the child in a Christian environment. Professional classroom teachers lead and produce lesson plans designed to bring parents into the academic process.  We leverage a University Style schedule where students attend class approximately half of their academic time in a traditional classroom while the other half of their academic time is spent at home reinforcing the lessons learned.
  • S.T.E.M.

    We emphasize S.T.E.M. by following the Quadrivium. We define S.T.E.M as Science, Technology, and Engineering through Mathematics because a true classical education should emphasize Mathematics. The first phase of the Quadrivium is the basic study of numbers, or Arithmetic (and in modern times, Algebra). The second phase of the Quadrivium is the study of numbers in space, which is known as Geometry. The third phase of the Quadrivium is the study of numbers in time, which the ancients called Harmonics, but we know as Music. And finally, the last leg of the Quadrivium is the study of numbers in space-time, which is the study of Astronomy. S.T.E.M. and Astronomy subjects are emphasized at our school across all grades. Standardized test survey results have shown that when the Quadrivium is properly emphasized as part of a classical education, classically educated students excel above all others in higher-level math and science.

  • Liberty

    We focus our art of history on how the ideas, people, events, dates, and sacrifices that are a part of our American heritage, form the foundations of freedom in America. An emphasis is placed on the Christian origins of concepts such as: unalienable rights, liberty itself, and the restraints that are placed on governmental power. Students will be able to answer questions such as, where do rights come from? Where does government get its authority? Who first talked about government of, by, and for the people? A secular education will not lead students to ask these questions but a classical Christian education will. At our school, students will find the answers to these questions and they will know where their freedom comes from!

    "Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." (2 Cor. 3:17)
The Mission of Jabez Classical Christian School is to partner with parents to provide families with an affordable classical Christian education so that students can lead change for the glory of God.
