The Stonehaven School is a school striving to glorify God by providing a rigorous and unapologetically Christian education in the classical tradition. We aim to cultivate truth, goodness, and beauty in our students with a thorough Christian worldview. Such an education equips students with more than simply facts and knowledge. It gives students the tools of learning so that they are capable of learning independently. It cultivates in the student a love of knowledge and a desire to know more about the Creator and his creation.
Is not the great defect of our education today—a defect traceable through all the disquieting symptoms of trouble that I have mentioned—that although we often succeed in teaching our pupils "subjects," we fail lamentably on the whole in teaching them how to think: they learn everything, except the art of learning." - Dorothy Sayers
The apostle Paul calls Christians to "not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect" (Romans 12:2). A Stonehaven education seeks to renew the minds and hearts of children that they might know the will of God. The school is responsible not only for developing the intellect but also helping form the character of a child. We hope to train up children that possess integrity, humility and wisdom. A truly Christian education is more than chapel once a week and prayer before classes. Ultimately, Stonehaven graduates are equipped with a vision and understanding of all of life in light of Scripture.
There is no greater way to learn about what makes Stonehaven so special than visiting the school. I encourage you to come for a tour and see for yourself the unique education provided at Stonehaven.
