Our Philosophy of Education 

Oddly enough, there is no one agreed upon definition of education. The word “to educate” comes from the Latin, educare, which means “to lead out.” All educational processes are driven by a philosophy of what education is, and there are many. All such philosophies of education have as their goal the shaping of an individual for some aspect of life in a particular society. The goal is to shape the society through education. Trivium is no different, as the goal is to educate from a Kingdom-centered worldview, receptively shaping both the person and the larger society around them. Along with our vision, mission and values listed above, these seven key elements shape our philosophy of education: 

 

1. Irreducible Core: Loving God, loving others, and as you go, making disciples 

2. Rabbinical Process: Embracing a discipleship-based apprenticeship model 

3. Holistic Development: development, not just education, of the whole person 

4. Integrated Learning unto a Way of Life: Life is the curriculum 

5. Life-giving relationships and community: The environment God uses to shape us 

6. Scriptural Genesis: Everything is rooted in the Scripture 

7. Spirit-Empowerment: Grace-empowerment is essential for effective living 

 

These are the things that guide why we educate and how we engage in the educational process.
