St. Johns Classical Academy (SJCA) is affiliated with Hillsdale College’s Barney Charter School Initiative (BCSI). We will offer a unique option that provides students with classical education. The school will begin in year 2017-2018 with a K-8 offering. An additional grade will be added each successive year eventually marking SJCA a K-12 school. Students will receive a cohesive Classical education, which builds upon itself year after year, creating a successful foundation for learning. Students will be intentionally taught the benefits of a virtuous character and will be challenged through the lessons taught within the curriculum to develop and strengthen their character. Our teachers will provide the support and attention students require in order to meet the high expectations of a Classical education.
