We believe in the Classical Christian Education model because of how it promotes thinking, problem solving, and creates a love for learning in the student according to time tested age appropriate methods.
In our planning to move closer to family we shopped for a school in the Orlando area and found Geneva in Lakeland and we love it. We love our son’s 4th grade teacher Mrs. Terri Smith and we love how his classmates have accepted him as one of their own. We are well please with the administration and staff of Geneva and highly recommend it. – Rick and Libia Taylor.
When my first appointment at Geneva (and my son’s day of shadowing) was over, we were captivated. The faculty, students and administration were beyond welcoming. After years in other schools, Nicholas was shocked at the friendliness of every single person he encountered. Over and over again, he talked to Wes and me and the other children about his wonderful day at Geneva. Over the summer, we worked out the logistics of registration with Teri and Laura. I began to see how Geneva and its staff genuinely cared for the students. This was balm for my weary heart.
When school started, the other parents, students, and staff immediately took us under their wings and showed us the true spirit of Geneva. Our children were coming home every day with stories of budding friendships and new school subjects where they were not only taught important lessons but were taught to think for themselves and form their own opinions…Geneva students, families, and staff became an integral part of our daily lives. Also, God became front and center of our lives again, right where He belonged. Like a quiet whisper, without realizing it, we finally found our Village. – Mary Cummins
We are deeply grateful for Geneva and what it means for our family. We have seen not only a rich and rigorous classical curriculum applied, but that while being educated, our children have grown in Godly character.
The teachers at Geneva not only have a great passion for sharing their love of learning but also consistently point our children to Christ in their everyday lives. To know that their teachers are praying for them and guiding them practically day in and day out with God’s word is a blessing. We have seen the fruits of their work first hand and we are so blessed.
To see our children developing a passion for learning is a direct result of the environment Geneva has created for our children. We believe that Geneva best prepares them to love and serve the Lord, their families, and community for a lifetime. C.S. Lewis stated, ‘If education is beaten by training, civilization dies.’ We believe at Geneva our children are receiving an education; not just training for the next test. - Sean and Emma McMicken, Geneva Parents
We started our children at Geneva seven years ago and we have loved every minute of it! Every day brings a new discovery, a new reason to love learning, a new Biblical understanding. The classical model is the logical way to educate children. It allows children the opportunity to learn for themselves and it prepares them for a lifetime of learning. Our children are excited to go to school every day because they know that their teachers care about their educations and because they know that each day holds a new adventure. – Jennifer Barthel, Geneva Parent
One thing I love about Geneva is the faculty and staff. The teachers are passionate about what they teach and they are passionate about who they teach. I feel that my children are not only receiving a Biblical worldview through the classical Christian model but that their hearts are also being shepherded to love God, to love his ways and to enjoy the world he created. – Rev. Dax Gibson, Geneva Parent
“I attended Scared to Death by Literature and enjoyed it immensely. After the event, a few of my students had planned to go out to dinner but instead chose to go home and read The Yellow Wallpaper. You’re doing great things for literature!” - Crystal Smith, Professor of Composition, Valencia College West
My kids are entering their 8th year at Geneva. The care, love and education they are receiving is beyond my expectations. It is truly a blessing and they look forward to going every day and are sad when school is out for the summer!!! – Marcia Brooks, Geneva Parent
Geneva Classical Academy is a wonderful school and we are so thankful that our children attend Geneva. The Classical Christian model of education allows our children to excel academically and spiritually. Children at Geneva are far advanced academically when compared to their public school counterparts (up to two grades from my personal experience). But even more importantly, children at Geneva learn to be courteous, respect their peers and community, and value the beauty in life. The students are trained to think critically, apply their reasoning skills to difficult issues, and defend their positions both in written format and verbally. The teachers are able to implant a love of learning in the children through their patience, kind interactions, and advanced skills. Our children love to go to school every day and we feel fortunate that we can bring them to such a stimulating, safe, and caring environment where they are allowed to grow mentally and spiritually. - Submitted by a parent to www.greatschools.org
My child has been attending Geneva for the past two years and I love this school. The quality of education is far above any other school I have personally come across (and I investigated several schools before choosing this one). This school has excellent teachers who truly care about the children. The teachers come alongside the parents and partner with them in the education of the children. I am sold on Christian Classical Education and as long as Geneva is in Lakeland my child will be attending until she graduates. I would highly recommend this school to everyone and anyone who cares about the quality of education and the environment that your child will learn in. Geneva is an excellent school!! - Submitted by a parent to www.greatschools.org
