Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Clemson Area Classical Academy unique?
Our unique educational design combines classical methodology with a Christian biblical worldview enabling us to learn and grow together academically and spiritually, all within the classical model of development. We are able to embrace the stage of development of the students: Grammar, Dialectic (Logic) and Rhetoric. At CCA, our Mission is to assist parents in the education of their children by providing a homeschool hybrid educational setting that cultivates truth, goodness, and beauty in students through a distinctly Christ-centered, classical, and covenantal education. Through a rigorous classical curriculum, Clemson Classical Academy educates youth through a historic Christian worldview and partners with parents committed to their biblically ordained role as the primary instructors of their children. We will offer small class sizes at all stages of academics with individualized instruction from passionate, classically-trained instructors.
