Cair Paravel Latin School
mission & Values
To cultivate classically trained, lifelong learners, committed to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, who will enrich their community and God’s kingdom.
Cair Paravel Latin School aspires to become the premier classical Christian, liberal arts school in America.
Students at classical Christian schools receive opportunities to consider and to think about things which are lovely, pure, just, honorable and true. They are taught that there is lovely art, honorable speech, and admirable music. Objective standards exist in art, music, literature, and speech and students are taught to recognize and apply such standards.
Classical Christian schools also recognize the limits of their work. We recognize that God gave authority and responsibility for raising and teaching children to parents, not to schools. When children are taught well and consistently by their parents, their church, and their school, good fruit is often borne in their lives.
The Board of Directors of Cair Paravel Latin School meets monthly to establish policy, review financial affairs, and evaluate the effectiveness of the long-term strategic plan.
Cair Paravel Latin School became a charter member of the ACCS in 1994 and received full accreditation through ACCS beginning in October of 2014. The school is also an approved member of the Kansas State High School Activities Association.
Cair Paravel Latin School does not pursue accreditation with government agencies because their goals and objectives are often antithetical to the mission and vision of CPLS. The liberal arts education that every graduate receives prepares them thoroughly for higher education and history shows colleges and universities are eager to enroll CPLS graduates.
