For Christ and His Kingdom为了基督和他的国度

To restore a Christian paideia, we want to restore the patterns of thought and life that have enriched lives in all times and places. We do this by building classical schools and Christian communities, helping parents find schools, and promoting the critical importance of classical Christian education (CCE) on a national level.

为了恢复基督教的信仰,我们要恢复思想和生活的模式,这些模式丰富了所有时代和地方的生活。我们通过建立古典学校和基督教社区,帮助家长找到学校,并在全国范围内推广古典基督教教育(CCE)的重要性来做到这一点。

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.

无论作什么,都要从心里作,像是给主作的,不是给人作的。

— Colossians 3:23 ——歌罗西书3:23

Upholding the Classical Tradition坚持古典传统

Our students love to learn. From the beginning, the ACCS has been engaging our world.  We study all things, using scripture as an interpretive lens.  Music, art, entertainment, culture, history, science, and much more is within our scope.  We “pillage the Egyptians”, in the words of Augustine, by reclaiming all earthly treasures in subjection to Christ.  You might see students debating environmental law, or considering excellence in pop music,  or studying the insights of Steven Hawking.  We promote learning that is Christ centered, but not isolated from the world and the culture around us.  Ultimately, this approach led to the position Christianity once had in culture.

我们的学生喜欢学习。从一开始,ACCS就一直在参与我们的世界。我们研究一切事物,用圣经作为解释的透镜。音乐、艺术、娱乐、文化、历史、科学等等都在我们的范围之内。我们“掠夺埃及人”,用奥古斯丁的话来说,就是在顺服基督的情况下收回地上所有的财宝。你可能会看到学生们在辩论环境法,或者考虑在流行音乐方面的卓越表现,或者研究史蒂芬·霍金的见解。我们提倡以基督为中心的学习,而不是与我们周围的世界和文化隔绝。最终,这种方法导致了基督教曾经在文化中的地位。

So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the traditions that you were taught. — 2 Thessalonians 2:15
所以弟兄们,你们要站立得稳,要持守所受的教训。——帖撒罗尼迦后书2:15

All these things shall be given… 所有这一切都将被赐予……

It’s easy to get lost in “college and career readiness”, “Science, Technology, and Math (STEM)”, “Common core”, or any of the current buzz terms that circulate.  But the ACCS and our member schools are about something entirely different.

  • Theology is the queen of knowledge:  We begin with the medieval principle that every experience, every skill, every idea, all knowledge and every creation is only understood in the context of God and His nature.
    神学是知识的女王:我们从中世纪的原则开始,每一个经验,每一个技能,每一个想法,所有的知识和每一个创造都只有在上帝和他的本性的背景下才能理解。
  • Education is the cultivation of virtue:  We teach children to think well (Intellectual Virtues), we train them to lead (Cardinal virtues), we transform them with a love of goodness (Moral Virtues), we train them to be winsome as they write and speak with eloquence (Rhetorical virtues), we deepen their knowledge of God, history, and our world (the virtue of Wisdom) and we immerse them in a Christian view of all things.
    教育是美德的培养:我们教孩子们好好思考(智力美德),我们训练他们领导(基本美德),我们用对善良的爱来改造他们(道德美德),我们训练他们在写作和说话时具有口才(修辞美德),我们加深他们对上帝、历史和我们的世界的认识(智慧美德),我们让他们沉浸在基督教的观点中。
  • Students appreciate and reflect Truth, Goodness and Beauty:  These three qualities are the measure of everything in God’s creation.  Our students appreciate these things around them, and seek to reflect these things in their lives.
    学生欣赏和反映真、善、美:这三种品质是衡量上帝创造万物的标准。我们的学生欣赏他们周围的这些东西,并试图在他们的生活中反映这些东西。
  • We do all these things to the Glory of our Lord Jesus Christ:  Our ultimate mission is the cultivation of students as worshipers.
    我们所做的一切都是为了荣耀我们的主耶稣基督:我们的终极使命是培养学生成为敬拜的人。

The classical Christian system of educating children nurtured Christendom for nearly 2000 years.  And then, we forgot about it.  When we abandoned the “cultivation” of our youth, we set in motion the harvest.  We see that harvest in American culture today.  In the past 30 years, hope has returned as we cultivate a new field– the next generation.  Over 40,000 students are trained in classical Christian schools today.  Classical Christian education brought the light of Christ to pagan Rome, Anglo-saxon England, viking Scandinavians, and other cultures too numerous to mention.  And, in each case, it gave rise to the blessing of Christian culture as it went.

古典基督教的儿童教育体系培育了基督教世界近2000年。然后,我们就把它忘了。当我们放弃了青春的“耕耘”,我们就开始了收获。我们在今天的美国文化中看到了这种收获。在过去的30年里,希望又回来了,因为我们培育了一个新的领域——下一代。今天有超过40,000名学生在古典基督教学校接受培训。古典基督教教育将基督之光带给了异教的罗马、盎格鲁-撒克逊的英格兰、北欧海盗以及其他不胜枚举的文化。在每一种情况下,它都带来了基督教文化的祝福。

In the past two decades, Christian parents noticed something:  Classical Christian education also advances their children’s academic success.  While this is not our primary goal, the results are more than surprising.  Statistically, ACCS member schools outperform every type of school on standardized tests like the SAT and ACT.  And, they do so by a wide margin.  See more:  Measuring Success.

在过去的二十年里,基督徒父母注意到一个现象:古典基督教教育也能提高孩子的学业成绩。虽然这不是我们的主要目标,但结果非常令人惊讶。统计数据显示,ACCS成员学校在SAT和ACT等标准化考试中的表现优于所有类型的学校。而且,他们这样做的幅度很大。查看更多:衡量成功。
