STATEMENT OF FAITH

The Nicene Creed

“I believe  in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, and born of the Father before all ages. God of God, light of light, true God of true God. Begotten not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven. And was incarnate of the Holy Ghost and of the Virgin Mary and was made man; was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered and was buried; and the third day rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of the Father, and shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead, of whose Kingdom there shall be no end. And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]*, who together with the Father and the Son is to be adored and glorified, who spoke by the Prophets. And one holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for  the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.”

...so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you,

that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me.

John 17:21  

“The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost.”
― G.K. Chesterton

Classical Christian Hybrid-School


Adelphia Classical Christian Academy is a true hybrid: balancing the best of a full time classical Christian school with the best of homeschooling. The school establishes the curriculum and provides on-campus teacher-led instruction on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  Wednesday and Friday are at-home school days reinforcing lessons taught on-campus. This hybrid-school schedule removes the inefficiencies of a typical five-day school while still providing teacher-led core instruction, which provides flexibility for families to better manage their outside activities. For at-home days, families are provided with homework sheets to help support their child's learning success.  Parents are not required to teach lessons at home, they are required to help in grading homework and ensuring their student completes assigned work.  Less parent grading is required as the student matriculates.



Saving Western Civilization One Student at a Time

As G.K. Chesterton wisely stated, "The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost." Adelphia Classical Christian Academy realizes that our Faith is precious.  It must be nurtured and preserved for generations to come. Christianity is part of our western civilization. Our beloved, free country is a result of our western civilization. By encouraging the development of wisdom and virtue through a pursuit of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness, we express our love of Faith and love of country and we help preserve our inherited western civilization one student at a time. 

Classical Latin School Association Partnership

Adelphia Classical Christian Academy maintains a Partner Membership with the Classical Latin School Association (CLSA). As part of the membership, Adelphia adheres to the principles of a classical Latin-centered Christian education, implementation of a Classical Core Curriculum, a traditional, teacher-directed instructional methodology and classroom setup, and a faith statement in accordance with CLSA’s requirements.

Statement of Faith

Adelphia Classical Christian Academy's Statement of Faith is primarily the Nicene Creed. The Nicene Creed is a historic statement of Christian belief that is at once comprehensive and specific as well as ecumenical. It is considered normative by the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Catholic churches, the Church of the East, the Anglican Church, the Oriental Orthodox churches, the Lutheran churches, and most Protestant denominations. The text below is a literal rendering from the Latin, and some Christian traditions may use slightly different renderings. 

“I believe  in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, and born of the Father before all ages. God of God, light of light, true God of true God. Begotten not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven. And was incarnate of the Holy Ghost and of the Virgin Mary and was made man; was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered and was buried; and the third day rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of the Father, and shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead, of whose Kingdom there shall be no end. And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]*, who together with the Father and the Son is to be adored and glorified, who spoke by the Prophets. And one holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for  the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.”

In addition to the Nicene Creed:

  • We believe that the family is ordained by God as the basic unit of His plan for His people. The institution of marriage between one man and one woman as created by God provides the foundation and definition for the family. 

  • We believe the preservation and edification of the family to be an act of obedience to God.

  • We believe in the sanctity of all human life. This life should be protected, nurtured and helped from the moment of conception (when life begins) until natural death.
