Vision, Mission, and Values


Establishing a community of virtuous scholars who advance God’s kingdom in their community and throughout the world.

Mission Statement

SPA seeks to provide students in grades K-12 with the highest quality Christian classical education, to cultivate Christian virtue, and to promote the recovery of Christian humanism.


Integral to the SPA educational philosophy is the formation of the whole person. In keeping with this philosophy, SPA bases its mission on the shared values of spiritual, personal, and communal, and academic formation.

Spiritual Formation – SPA seeks to give students a comprehensive understanding of the Christian faith, a respect for the value of the individual, and the experience of a faith community, lived out through liturgy, prayer, and service.

Personal Formation – SPA seeks to mold students who value themselves and others, who apply Gospel values in moral decision-making, who have a strong aesthetic sense, and who exhibit self-discipline and a cooperative spirit.

Communal Formation – SPA aims to promote an active interest in the well-being of others, understanding of diverse cultures, and an awareness of the responsibilities of citizenship.

Academic Formation – We seek a curriculum, which meets the highest standards of accreditation and society, which prepares students for college and post-secondary pursuits, and which fully develops students’ skills for communication and critical thinking.
