Education & Community
Discover Liberty at our Winter Open House!
At Liberty Classical, we are building students, thinkers, dreamers, artists, and leaders. We are giving students skills to adapt and succeed—and we envision even more. To truly make a difference, students need a broad and deep education that teaches them to think critically…to solve problems ethically…to live with integrity.
It’s what sets Liberty apart: powerful PreK - 12 academics paired with heart-shaping Christian values.
It's how we’re Building Lives that Inspire.
