Classical Christian Studies

The outcome of students depends on the quality of their education

Flexible. Personal. Communal.

Our low-residency M.St. degree is designed to accommodate busy professionals by combining the flexibility of online education with the connectedness of in-person education. You’ll absorb the rich tradition of classical Christian education while maintaining your routine life.

The live, online format means students keep their normal lives and routines. Courses aren’t just recorded videos—they are live classrooms with professors and fellow students. The community of CCS is one of the hidden values. You network with like-minded peers and professionals.

Educators Are Blacksmiths

If education is a kind of warfare, then educators are the blacksmiths. They forge and sharpen the minds of the next generation. We wouldn’t send soldiers out with faulty armor and dull weapons. We shouldn’t do so with our students.

Apprentice Under Masters

By far, the value of our program lies in the quality of our faculty. They’re highly experienced, classically minded, and biblically faithful.

Perfect Your Craft

Most of us didn’t get a classical education, or our education wasn’t thorough enough. The CCS program smelts away the dross, and refines your knowledge. You’ll be able to trust your teaching. We can’t have shoddy knowledge, because we can’t send students out into the world with shoddy minds.

Equip Your Students

With our MSt under your belt, you’ll have a deep confidence in your knowledge. You’ll learn how to teach, you’ll learn specific works, and you’ll learn the big-picture of the liberal arts tradition. You’ll be equipping your teachers or your students, community, and fellow teachers, with high quality education.

Designed with busy people in mind

A Schedule for Busy People

So many of us are already working professionals or busy with family. So we decided to design a program specifically with busy people in mind.

All Courses

Our quality courses set us apart. Our expert faculty take a personalized approach, so you get their intelligence and face to face guidance.

Summer Residency

The summer residency is a favorite aspect of the program. It’s when all the students and faculty come together for a week of intensive courses and deep fellowship.

Too Beautiful A Satan?

Milton’s Satan
