Logic: Learning how particular facts are related in each subject
As youth begin to develop a fundamental knowledge of various subject matters, they become more transparent in expressing their opinions. Middle school children have the natural tendency to question and debate what they are taught. Our teachers nurture this tendency through guided conversation to help students use reasoned thinking to arrive at sound conclusions. This formative opportunity allows them to evaluate their own arguments before engaging in discussion with differing points of view.
Abiding Savior Academy offers the only full-time Classical Christian educational approach in Sioux Falls and surrounding communities. At its core, Classical Christian Education (CCE) trains students to be life-long learners who reason clearly, think critically, and speak eloquently.
Each of our classes are centered on the principle that God is the Creator of all that exists, and therefore all knowledge is interrelated and ultimately points back to Him. Biblical standards of conduct are applied in all areas of classroom life, acknowledging that Jesus Christ is Lord of all. Bible classes are taught by a pastoral Bible instructor.
Our smaller class sizes (relative to other nearby school options) allow for our teachers to work more closely with students individually. This school environment also offers greater interaction with students from different grades, through which students learn in unique ways from each other.
