What is Classical Education?

Join The Renewal

“Catholic education aims not only to communicate facts but also to transmit a coherent, comprehensive vision of life, in the conviction that the truths contained in that vision liberate students in the most profound meaning of human freedom.”

– St. John Paul II (at the Ad Limina visit including Indiana in 1998)

Excitement for Fiat Classical is Mounting

"Equipping young people to discern objective truth and to seek objective goodness will make all the difference as they face our culture’s growing crisis of meaninglessness. The only answer is Christ. I'm excited to see the launch of a new academy so explicit in its desire to help young people dive into the great adventure of life in Christ.”

Brad Torline

– Executive Director of The Angelico Project

“Fiat Classical Academy offers a beacon of hope for our future society! In a world where our youth are bombarded with pressure to conform to confused cultural norms, this is a chance for excellence in education that will awaken and form their character in the truth, beauty and goodness of God’s design for the human person, enabling them to master the art of living their faith.”

Eva Roll

– Parishioner of St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Bright, IN

“To have a school where the culture is deeply and universally informed by faith; where students and teachers alike encounter the sources of knowledge and actively engage in their synthesis; where the arts are treated with the respect and the discipline that befit their true value; where the nobility, the boldness, and the freedom of life in Christ are unashamedly upheld—it seems like a dream. With the grace of God, I am eager to see that dream become a reality at Fiat Classical Academy.”

Fr. Christian Cone-Lombarte

Parochial Vicar of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Cincinnati, OH

“There is a transformational renewal unfolding in … education today. Fiat Classical Academy is taking its place as an integral part of that renewal. Based upon an understanding of students as naturally gifted by God with both a passionate desire and natural ability to learn, the school builds upon this God-given hunger for learning in order to allow a young person to grow into all that they have been created to be. This is a much-needed return to a classical model of education intimately connected to the Catholic view of the human person!"

Joseph D. Hollowell, Ed.D.

Consultant for the Institute of School and Parish Development, and retired President of Roncalli High School, Indianapolis, IN

“The future of our society will rise or fall with the strength of individuals who have been formed in the truth. Fiat Classical Academy is committed to forming the individual, in a true understanding of the human person, revealed by God and entrusted to the Church.”

Fr. Jonathan Meyer

Pastor in Solidum of All Saints Parish, St. Lawrence, St. Mary and St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, IN
