At The Academy of Classical Christian Studies, we teach that subjects are not isolated from each other, but rather relate in fundamental ways, as the biblical story of creation, fall, redemption, and consummation ties all things together and gives them meaning and purpose. With this understanding (and with help from our WISE parents), the following annual traditions are incorporated into the educational atmosphere of our school program to enhance learning.
Feasts (Christmas & Easter)
We consider feasting part of our joyful obedience to God's command to love God with all our heart, soul, and strength. Not only is it referenced throughout the Scriptures, but Christian history places feasting as the central demonstration and expression of our gratitude toward God and the joy that comes from celebrating his Providence in our lives. Feasting is a cornerstone of student life. Arranged by house, the students come in their uniforms ready for a formal, two-course fresh-prepared feast that includes place settings, toasts, and recitations between courses. Our annual feasts include Christmastide and Resurrection Day Feasts.
In addition to these school-wide feasts, each of the classes (and even some of the school houses) participate in special festivals which correspond to their history and literature studies. The class festivals take place throughout the school year, and usually include costumes, special foods, and music.
Spirit Days (Monthly)
Spirit Days are monthly events at each of our campuses in which students and families can show their school spirit by wearing school t-shirts from current or past years. On the dates at each respective campus, students and staff may wear current or former t-shirts (including house shirts) from The Academy, Providence Hall, or Veritas. Normal dress code applies from the waist down. Spirit Days are also a fundraiser supporting parent training initiatives and community building events throughout the year.
