No, Geneva School of Boerne is an independent and interdenominational Christian school. We welcome families from many denominations and traditions of the Christian faith who desire to partner with us in teaching our children from a Christian worldview and in evaluating everything we do against the standard of God’s Word, the Holy Bible.
There is much to be said about Classical education and we encourage those who are interested to read An Introduction to Classical Education – A Guide for Parents by Dr. Chris Perrin. The booklet is available for free in our admissions office. In the booklet, Perrin states, Classical education is a long tradition of asking questions and digging up answers, consulting others, then asking, seeking and finding more. It is joining, as one writer puts it, the Great Conversation. That means reading great books (the classics), studying them, mining them, talking to others about the influential ideas they contain. Whatever else classical education is, it is an ongoing series of questions and answers. For students to do this well, they need training in the disciplines of grammar, logic and rhetoric. Other distinctives of our classical approach include the study of Latin beginning in third grade, a chronological study of history as well as a core of humanities courses in high school. The capstone of Geneva’s classical education is our Senior Thesis program. The presentations take place each May and follow a calendar year of research, writing and memorization. Each presentation is comprised of a 20 minute claim on a topic of the student’s choosing followed by a 20 minute defense before a panel of individuals conversant on the topic. The school’s educational program is designed to move our students toward our Portrait of a Graduate.
