Explorers I

Our Explorers I Class meets 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) from 8:25 - 11:30 am.

Parent Interviews

Brett Everett

We discovered Clapham, a classical Christian school, was only a 20-minute drive from our home. We set up a tour and were truly blown away by what the students were learning here compared to other schools. After our tour, we knew right away we would do anything to send our children here.
