St. Herman of Alaska Christian School proves that education is more than a collection of facts or skills required to “make it” in this world, but it is the formation of the mind, body, and soul as a servant for our life with Christ. In the words of St. Theophan the Recluse, the ultimate goal for parents and educators should be to “raise Saints.” At Saint Herman School, the teachers, priests, and parents form a close partnership which cultivates virtue and wisdom, inspires a love for learning, and prepares children for a bright future, both in the world and in the Church.
In short, our goals are:
To kindle and nurture a zeal for God and love for neighbor.
To cultivate the seed of self-knowledge and discernment.
To educate children toward an inspired understanding of the world, laying a solid foundation for their future vocation.
To create an Orthodox curriculum, Orthodox educational methodology in the classical tradition.
To serve and benefit parents, pastors, home-schooling families and other educators as well as providing a compendium of useful resources.
