Piedmont Classical is a wonderful school... They focus on reading and comprehension within all the subjects and actually have textbooks, (selected by each subject department head), for each of the students! Discipline is firm and just, with a focus on students safety and care. The kids are like one big family! Great school!

The simple mantra of the faculty is:

"Classical Education is:
The Liberal Arts;
The Great Books;
Character Education."

The classical education that these students are receiving is being developed and delivered by content experts (many of whom have advanced degrees) who clearly care for their students as people rather than as numbers and statistical data. All of the teachers at Piedmont Classical are invested in their students not only in the classrooms as lifelong learners, but also by means of extracurricular tutoring weekly and extracurricular club advisement or athletic coaching. These teachers have been taught to care about their students as adolescents, neither adults nor youth, but something uniquely in between -- as whole people nonetheless.
I started here my freshman year, at the church on 68 and it was my best choice ever! The admin we had then were super informing and never made me feel left out.
