Academic Highlights

At Mars Hill Academy we use the classical method of education built upon the three subjects of the Trivium (grammar, logic, rhetoric), and we teach all subjects from a thoroughly Christian perspective. Classical Christian education is intentionally structured to follow a child’s natural development and saturated in truths rooted in Scripture. A biblical worldview is integrated into all of our courses.

Mars Hill Academy is dedicated to helping our students master the art of learning. It is our goal to provide a very broad education across a variety of subjects, and through them to teach students the essential skills to become life-long learners and to bring glory to God.
