St. Mark's Classical Christian School

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.”

(Proverbs 1:7)

Dear Friends,

As you may already know, we are endeavoring to establish a new ministry here at St. Marks - a classical christian school. This Fall we will begin with a Kindergarten class and also a class for 1st & 2nd graders.

There is no more enduring gift that a parent can give a child than a sound Christian upbringing, including a Christian education. St. Mark’s Classical Christian School endeavors to assist parents in this awesome calling, by providing an excellent educational foundation for children through utilizing the time-tested method of a classical education. Our ambition is to help parents build strong families, to the greater glory of God and the good of the students.


The mission of St. Mark’s Classical Christian School is to endow our children with the tools of learning, and the wisdom of the ages, by nourishing their souls with truth, goodness and beauty, so that they may serve God and their fellow man with virtue, dignity, and strength.


Our school is committed to providing the following to our students:
* A worshipping community in which spiritual formation may flourish
* Superb academics to prepare students to excel in future educational and vocational pursuits
* Continual emphasis on integrity and humility through opportunities to serve our community
* The experience of beauty in art and music to increase understanding of the world we share
* An environment that fosters mutual respect, good manners and self-discipline

We are currently accepting applications for enrollment - please keep us in your prayers and actively recommend our school and nursery school to your friends!
