The Alexandrian Academy
"I see that by these studies, as by no other means,
people are wonderfully fitted for the grasping of sacred truth
and for handling it skillfully and happily."
-Martin Luther on the Classics and the Bible
The Alexandrian Academy is a daughter ministry of the Alexandrian Forum that is raising funding to record a full program of Classical and Biblical study to be made available for online use. Alexandrian Forum participants will be able to audit these classes at their own convenience, on their own time. The Alexandrian Academy will also offer the opportunity to receive certifications in three possible courses of study: the “Classical Leadership” track, the “Biblical Studies” track, or the more comprehensive “Pastoral Ministry” track. Although Academy courses are primarily geared toward the college and graduate levels, diligent high school students are fully capable of excelling in these classes.
