About Us

Cair Paravel Latin School (CPLS) is the region’s leading non-denominational classical Christian college preparatory school. We offer Preschool-12th grade classes.

Our Classical method of teaching is unique, but it is no experiment.  This model of education produced the greatest leaders, scientists, and thinkers of Western civilization from the Greeks in antiquity to America’s founding fathers. Classical Christian education seeks to faithfully restore the most proven form of education ever developed.

For over 35 years, CPLS has followed the guiding principle that every child of God is capable of extraordinary achievements through classical training and cultivation of character.  We believe that all education should be education that naturally leads students toward the good, the true, and the beautiful.

At CPLS, each and every student is challenged and inspired by the curriculum while being given the “toolkit” with which to further their learning and a passion for knowledge. This vast education and thirst for knowledge is brought together in a convergence with Christ for the most rigorous Christian educational experience in the area.
