Clapham Christian Classical School

About Clapham School

Our Story



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.



Now in 2024, Clapham School equips students in grades K4-12 to intentionally serve Christ by cultivating His goodness, truth, and beauty in the world.

Our Values

CURIOSITY, Excellence, JOY

At Clapham School, teachers delight in developing classrooms that encourage an atmosphere of curiosity, excellence, 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.

Our Vision


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.
