“Lift Up Your Hearts!”
♡ Sursum Corda Classical will provide a classical, Biblical education to children. By using the classical approach within the framework of a confessional Lutheran character, the school will aim to allow students to “lift up their hearts.”
♡ Through the nurturing of grammar, logic, and rhetoric, students will rise above simply learning a set of skills, to rather be free to discover what is true, good, and beautiful.
♡ By engaging with the greatest of literature and wisdom from the past to the present, students will be freed to think above the issues of the modern world.
♡ With a schedule that includes parents in the education of their children, families will be freed for service in their highest and most important vocations.
♡ Finally, with the Gospel of Christ and the forgiveness of sins forming the foundation of the school, students’ hearts will be truly lifted up – free from sin.
