Q&A with Hagia Sophia Classical Academy

What makes Hagia Sophia Classical Academy unique?

Hagia Sophia Classical Academy teaches students how to think, not what to think. The school emphasizes mastery (learning that lasts), instead of cramming to pass tests (though students do well on tests). Because of this, our students learn more deeply and are 1-3 years ahead of their age compared with most schools. We prepare our students to approach life and vocation with exceptional skill, faith, humility and honor, having as its source Jesus Christ – the Wisdom, Word, and Son of God. We educate the whole human person: mind, heart and body. We educate students based upon Classical academics combined with Orthodox Christian values. Our mission is to provide children a stronger foundation for life and learning.
