Start Date on Board: December 2015
Why do you believe in CCE? I graduated from Hillsdale College and felt blessed to have received such an amazing classical liberal arts education. I found OA due to its affiliation with Hillsdale and out of admiration for the school’s pillars of character, truth and wisdom. I support classical Christian education because it is rooted in truth, goodness and inspires students to look for beauty in the world around them. OA is a beacon of light in today’s world of progressive education that is ever -shifting away from American patriotism and a Christian world view. I am continually amazed by how the wonderful teachers at OA weave God’s word and teachings into every subject!
