Parent Information

Train a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not turn from it.

– Proverbs 22:6

The mission of Zion Classical Academy is to cultivate Truth, Wisdom, and Virtue in our students through classical Christian education in order to equip them for a life of service to God and neighbor. At Zion Classical Academy, we realize that parents are the first teachers of their children, and we work with them to instill Christian ideals and principles. Our teachers are assistants to, and not substitutes for, the child’s parents. Together, we will work to help each child fulfill God’s vision for their future.

Parent Teachers United (PTU)

The PTU is an important communications link between the families and the teachers. ALL PARENTS are invited to join this group that meets during the school year on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at Zion Classical Academy.
The PTU sponsors exciting activities and programs each year. Proceeds from fundraisers have helped purchase books and equipment for our students. Our Vendor Shows and the Annual Fall Dinner & Auction are just a few of the many opportunities for the parents and teachers to work together with the goal of enriching the lives our students. We are blessed to have such active and dedicated members; representing our parents and our teaching staff. If you have not yet joined us, please call for more information or come to our next PTU meeting.
