Why are we called “Ransom Fellowship”?
Our school’s name is inspired by the character of Elwin Ransom, the hero of C.S. Lewis’ space trilogy including “Out of the Silent Planet”, “Perelandra”, and “That Hideous Strength”. We have taken up the name “Ransom” in honor of the wisdom and imagination of Lewis.
What Does It Mean to be Classical?
The essence of classical education is the pursuit of what is good, true, beautiful, and enduring. We are intentional in forming students to become adults who love God and are awakened to His beauty, goodness, and truth. An education that is both Christian and classical offers a deep, inexhaustible well of knowledge and wisdom.
“Every education teaches a philosophy; if not by dogma then by suggestion, by implication, by atmosphere. Every part of that education has a connection with every other part. If it does not all combine to convey some general view of life it is not education at all.”G.K. Chesterton
Our Unique Approach
Our classes are designed to effectively teach both typical learners and those with some extra learning needs such as ADHD or dyslexia. To do this, we combine the proven and formative content of classical education with the flexibility needed to engage and challenge a wide range of learning abilities. In addition, all students benefit from the Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment program as part of the core curriculum.
