Buffalo Creek Boys School offers a rigorous, classical education that challenges students to live and think from a Christian worldview, develop their critical thinking skills, communicate effectively through oral and written expression, and explore an array of new challenges and experiences.

Fields of Study


Classical, Christian education builds the whole child – head, heart, and hands. The aim is to build virtue and wisdom in light of the Bible. The result is a well-educated student able to discover and express the richness of God and His created order. The Trivium to aid in the discovery of learning. This method helps each student to learn how to think critically and write and speak with eloquence and clear articulation.

Classical Christian Education


The Trivium aligns with the child’s natural way of learning. The word means where three roads meet and is comprised of three categories: Grammar, Dialectic, and Rhetoric. These are the first three among the seven ancient liberal arts. Grammar or knowledge is the learning of a broad-based set of facts associated with a body of knowledge. The comprehension of these facts is vital. Dialectic or logic is the art of using reason to express these facts in a logical and well-ordered manner consistent with revealed truth. Rhetoric or wisdom is the expression of ideas using clear and eloquent articulation – in thought, word, and deed.

What is the Trivium? 

The ultimate end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. This demands a careful study of and devotion to God as revealed in Scripture and His created order as revealed in nature. 

To what ultimate end?
