Gigantism, There is No Such Thing as a Neutral Culture

In decades past, the children of the fifties would reminisce upon their adolescent lives, indulging in nostalgic dreams of their cultural cradle in movies and television shows like “American Graffiti” or “Happy Days”. You hear this sort of thing in grocery stores as the music of two decades ago is played to the adults of today shopping to feed...

Classical Cure for the Midlife Crisis; the Phoenix Rising Gala!

Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) begins his Comedia Divina in a way that causes us to think of several things: human events, the trinity, Christ, and human folly.

Concordia Academy has been blessed with the support of many, and students that are joyful, attentive, and full of enthusiasm for their own studies and growth. As has been observed, the presence of hope, one of the three spiritual virtues, is observed in...

Why Latin and Greek?

"Latin is a language, dead as dead can be, first it killed the Romans, and now it’s killing me." You may have heard someone chanting this or asserting its corollary: “Latin is a dead language, and therefore pointless.” While we’ll overlook the bad reasoning in that enthymeme (rhetorical syllogism), it is true that Latin is not learned as a native...

Year Two at Concordia Academy

The seasons were observed for many cycles by the ancients before they could ponder reliable calendars, meaning it takes many reiterations to lay down dependable expectations. Concordia Academy has completed one lap around the track, one circuit of the zodiac, one full academic year of living and studying together in the pursuit of academic...
