At Clapham School, we desire to engender in our students’ hearts a strong Christian worldview.
In 2005 a group of families in the Wheaton area conceived the idea of Clapham School because of their desire for a school that was both academically rigorous and authentically Christian. They began praying together weekly for God’s guidance and launched the school with a small group of families in the fall of 2006.
In 2019, Clapham School equips students in grades K4-12 to intentionally serve Christ by cultivating His goodness, truth, and beauty in the world.
At Clapham School, teachers delight in developing classrooms that encourage an atmosphere of curiosity, discipline, and joy in learning. Many of our faculty have advanced degrees in their fields and years of educational experience. Most importantly, every member of the Clapham faculty professes their faith in Jesus Christ and desires to care for students both academically and spiritually.
The classical tradition focuses on the disciplined pursuit of wisdom in community.
Classical education is about training students how to think, not what to think, through the seven liberal arts and sciences. Rather than educating just for information, classical education engages in the formation of students, as Christian mentor-teachers guide them to pursue truth, goodness and beauty in all their studies.
