Christian education is where faith and learning come together. Belief is the starting point, the worldview of the young learner, influenced primarily by parents, that allows him to encounter an educational process. Learning then, starts in the home, not with the school. A Christian school starts with a students beliefs and integrates learning into them, not the other way around. Academia must be built into existing belief.
Child development is a maturing process from simple to complex. As a child's brain develops physiologically, his capacity to think develops as well. The three stages of the trivium are likewise progressional. A wise man needs a foundation of knowledge and understanding. He has learned how to learn.
