St. Mark’s is a classical academy ... “where the instruction which enlightens
the understanding is not separated from the moral education
which amends the heart.”
— Alexis de Tocqueville
Welcome toSt. Mark'sClassical Academy
Mission
... To endow our students with the tools of learning and the wisdom of the ages by nourishing their souls with truth, goodness and beauty, so that they may serve God and their fellow man with virtue, dignity and strength.
Our Faculty
... Are committed to the full integration of faith and learning. We maintain a low student-teacher ratio so as to provide an effective, personal learning environment in which our teachers act not only as instructors, but also as mentors and Christian role-models.
Curriculum
... Using the time-honored “trivium,” (three-fold way) and its three stages of learning as a guide, curriculum materials are carefully chosen from select publishers to ensure that students in the Grammar stage (K-6th) acquire the necessary phonetic, reading, arithmetic, and writing skills in traditional core subjects.
The sole purpose of education is simply this :  to teach men how to learn for themselves ;  and whatever instruction fails to do this is effort spent in vain. — Dorothy Sayers, The Lost Tools of Learning

Classical Education

At St. Mark's Academy, we believe that to address the problems of the present, we must look backward. An education rooted in the accumulated wisdom of thousands of years is still available. It is the education of our forefathers—the education that has shaped leaders for generations, and is still doing just that.

This education stands on three legs: outstanding academics in a tutorial-style setting, a rigorous and broad arts program, and (last but most importantly) true spiritual formation.

Founded on timeless educational principles, our highest goal is that our students know and love the truth.
