| PURPOSE |
Haven Classical educates children in the truest and fullest sense. Our whole-person pedagogy gives students the necessary tools of learning and cultivates a wonder and love for all that is genuinely true, good, and beautiful. We emphasize classical learning because we want our students to read, speak, and think well in order to pursue happy and integrated lives in the service of others. Dedicated to forming a spirit of care and connection between children and the natural world, Haven thrives with family engagement and fosters a sense of purpose and participation.
Education is more than just imparting knowledge and skill. Education is a life-long endeavor and involves the whole person. We seek to incorporate our students into the wisdom of thousands of years of thought, discovery, culture, and arts. Though intentional teaching and wonder-led learning students develop a sense of wonder, empathy, and creativity.
