Christian education


The Wilberforce School was founded to provide a distinctively Christian prep school education characterized by academic excellence and joyful discovery within a classical framework.

Truth is truth however learned. But while truth is truth however learned, the bearing of truth, the meaning of truth, the purpose of truth, even in the sphere of mathematics, seem entirely different to the Christian from that which they seem to the non-Christian; and that is why a truly Christian education is possible only when Christian conviction underlies not a part, but all, of the curriculum of the school.
