“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts."
Who We Are
Anthem Classical Academy is a private Christian school in Fayetteville, Arkansas, that distinguishes itself by offering a classical education rooted in a biblical worldview. We will offer kindergarten - 7th grade for the 2023-2024 school year, and will add grades yearly until we expand to K-12.
Anthem Classical Academy exists to cultivate Christ-centered leaders who know truth, practice goodness, and recognize beauty. We pursue excellence in character, scholarship, and service out of reverence for God and His glory.
As a classical Christian school, we equip the next generation of Christian leaders by upholding the following CORE values:
We value Classical Education by...
Cultivating an environment that fosters curiosity, wonder, and a framework for lifelong learning.
Equipping students to think logically, draw their own conclusions, and communicate their position with confidence and humility.
Providing students with a holistic education where they will understand various disciplines and apply them in the world.
Embracing a higher degree of accountability that yields greater knowledge and a compelling morality: flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace. Do not be quarrelsome but be kind, teachable, enduring, and gentle (2 Timothy 2:22-26).
Affording institutions of higher learning the opportunity to recruit our students because of the academic caliber they possess.
We value Christian Education by...
Desiring each student to begin a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:10).
Fostering discipleship for the purpose of encouraging, equipping, and challenging one another towards maturity in Christ (Colossians 1:28).
Equipping the next generation of Christian leaders to bring the world around them to a reverence of and relationship with God (Matthew 22:37-39, 28:18-20).
Training students in a systematic biblical worldview so that they know what they believe, why they believe it, and how to defend it (1 Peter 3:15).
Restoring and enhancing families through sacrificial love and biblical leadership (Ephesians 3:16-19).
We value Community by...
Spurring one another on towards Christian virtue.
Producing young men and women of character who fill the marketplace for the glory of God and the good of others.
Creating a supportive and engaging culture for our school community.
Building a roster of teachers and staff who inspire learning and model authentic Christian living in Northwest Arkansas.
Stewarding the resources entrusted to us to serve Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas to help shape our culture.
"Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts."
An anthem is a declaration of praise. Since the creation of the world, God has declared the song of redemption in the lives of man, in the world He created, and in His word. His redemptive purpose is evident in all subjects and in our hearts, our minds, and our actions. From reciting beautiful poetry, scripture, and hymns in our classrooms to studying God’s handiwork in the heavens, we will declare, every day, God’s goodness to a hurting world. Together we will #RaiseTheAnthem.
"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."
-1 Peter 2:9
A royal is set apart for the purpose of leading others. Good leaders use their position to demonstrate virtues such as truth, justice, generosity, humility, and piety. As members of God’s royal priesthood, we have the unique ability to administer His goodness and hope to a hurting world. For this reason, we believe students should lead in such a way that cultivates Heavenly values instead of earthly ones.
“What is man that you are mindful of him and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.”
Psalm 8 tells us that God establishes His strength through His most precious creation--children. We believe the crown serves as a reminder to our students that they are crowned with God’s glory and honor so they can help establish His redemptive purpose for the world. We want to raise men and women who have hope and give hope because they are image-bearers of a loving God.
