Our classical model is reflected in our mission of Christian, classical, joyful discovery education



Clapham School inspires students with an education founded on a Christian worldview, informed by the classical tradition, and approached with diligence and joy.


Christian Worldview

We believe that all truth is God’s truth.

We see all children as persons created in the image of God.

We aim to enculturate them into a life of service to Christ.

We engage in intentional spiritual formation and discipleship.


Classical Tradition

We are classical in content:

  • We study classic literature, art, music, and all the liberal arts and sciences.

We are classical in method: 

We are classical in purpose:

  • We prepare students for life-long learning and servant-leadership in the world.


Joyful Discovery

Students learn in an atmosphere free from artificial distractions, behavior charts and prizes. Instead, beautiful artwork, plants, inspiring quotes and music fill our classrooms, and children learn simply for the joy of learning. At the same time, they are called on to work hard and learn to confront challenges with grit and perseverance, while in an atmosphere of supportive relationships with teachers, peers and coaches. Our model of joyful discovery is inspired by the philosophy and methods of Charlotte Mason.
