Transformative Classes for High School Students

Versatile. Classical. Christian.

In keeping with HBU’s 10 Pillars, we offer flexible classical Christian education for dual-credit to High School students through what is often referred to as an Oxbridge model (comprised of seminar classes plus dynamic lectures from first rate HBU faculty).

By partnering with schools and homeschooling parents, we provide a way to enrich and empower your student’s education, through your school or at our HBU campus.

Mission: To move high school students to think holistically, classically, and, most important, Christianly in order to profess that Jesus Christ is Lord in all spheres of knowledge.
