The essence of the Christian worldview is grace. Two thousands years ago Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus that Christians exist ”for the praise of his glorious grace” (Eph. 1:6). Charis Classical Academy exists for the same reason. The Greek work “charis” /care-iss/ means grace and grace is the guiding value for all aspects of this educational institution. It is the sustaining sun around which this Christian, Classical, and University Model school will orbit. Anything less would be hopeless moralism that harms children and robs God of the glory due his name. Grace. It’s what we all need. It’s what Charis Classical Academy is all about.
