As part of your child’s classical and Christian education, he will learn how to understand the world from a Christian Worldview. You may have chosen Westside Christian Academy for this very reason. So what does that mean to the classical and Christian student?
Christian Overman, author of Assumptions That Affect Our Lives, defines worldview as a “word used to describe a person’s mental perceptions about what is really real.” He goes on to explain that it is “an underlying set of beliefs or assumptions that shapes the way each of us judges the viability of our own life and behavior, whether or not we are consciously aware of those underlying elements.”
