General Description

The Greek word paideia means “education” or “upbringing,” but connotes so much more than what is conferred in the classroom. To bring up children with the paideia of God is to teach them to live like Christ with all their hearts, minds, souls, and strengths. Though ancient classical education incorporated the idea of paideia, today we must be reminded that teaching children means more than just perfecting their reading, writing, and ’rithmetic skills.
