About Claritas Classical Academy

C

laritas Classical Academy is a homeschool hybrid program which meets two days per week. This comprehensive program serves Philadelphia-area homeschool families and their pre-K through high school students with its Christ-centered, classical curriculum. We seek to cultivate wisdom and virtue by nourishing the child’s soul on truth, goodness, and beauty so that, in Christ, the student is enabled to better know, glorify, and enjoy God. We also strive to assist homeschooling families in achieving meaningful and lasting success in their home education program by using a classical model in a Christian community. Claritas Classical Academy is a Christ-centered group seeking accountability, community, and excellence in educating our children.

We are pleased to announce dual-enrollment for certain rhetoric-level courses where our students can earn college credit for Claritas classes through Cairn University.

Statement of Faith

The Claritas community embraces the Apostle’s Creed as our statement of faith. We believe it is sufficient for members of our community to hold this Creed in common. We are not a church and will not attempt to influence positions of doctrinal belief beyond this scope. Should questions of doctrine arise beyond the scope of the Apostle’s Creed, the student will be referred to his or her parents.

The Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell. The third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
