The Purpose of Education: Knowing God and Making Him Known


In the pursuit of education, one fundamental question often arises: What is the purpose of education? At Classical Conversations, we firmly believe that the ultimate purpose of education is to know God and to make Him known. This guiding principle shapes not only our curriculum but also our approach to homeschooling and the support we offer to families.

God’s Truth and Beauty in Every Subject

Embedded within every subject, from mathematics to literature, science to history, lies God’s truth and beauty waiting to be discovered. As families start on the journey of education, it becomes a joyous exploration of uncovering God’s handiwork in the world around us. Our studies are not merely about acquiring knowledge but about gaining a deeper understanding of God’s character and His creation.

Preparing to Know and Make God Known

Education should equip students with the tools to reason clearly, speak eloquently, calculate accurately, and write persuasively. These skills are not ends in themselves but rather means to an end – the ability to know God and to make Him known. By nurturing these abilities in our children, we empower them to articulate their faith, engage with others thoughtfully, and impact the world around them for the glory of God.

The Freedom of Homeschooling

Homeschooling offers families the freedom to set the course for their children’s education in alignment with this noble purpose. Through homeschooling, parents can tailor their children’s learning experiences to reflect their values, beliefs, and educational goals. This freedom brings joy, wonder, and delight to the learning journey, making education a shared adventure for the entire family.

Classical Conversations: Supporting Your Educational Journey

At Classical Conversations, we understand the challenges and rewards of homeschooling. That’s why we provide resources, curriculum, and encouragement to help families thrive in their educational endeavours. Our curriculum is designed to integrate faith and learning, allowing students to see the world through a biblical worldview and engage with knowledge in a meaningful way.

Embracing a Common Point of View

In a world shaped by diverse perspectives and experiences, classical, Christian education offers a unique opportunity to see the world from a common point of view. By immersing ourselves in the timeless arts of learning and the greatest treasures of human culture, we cultivate a shared understanding rooted in God’s truth. This common foundation enables us to navigate the complexities of the world with wisdom and discernment.

Therefore, the purpose of education goes beyond academic achievement; it is about knowing God and making Him known. Through homeschooling with Classical Conversations, families have the opportunity to travel this transformative journey together, discovering God’s truth and beauty in every subject and preparing their children to impact the world for His glory.
