On-campus classes meet two days per week (Monday and Wednesday), with at-home learning occurring on the alternate days. We use the Classical curriculum and a University-style approach, and aim to instill excellence of character by integrating Christ-centered, biblical principles as a part of each subject.

The school's curriculum is formed around a group of classes called the "Classical Core," which includes Language Arts, History, Science, and Math.
