Philosophy


The Cambridge School aims to develop students who are marked by their virtue and intellect; students who love to learn, think clearly, and communicate winsomely and graciously. To accomplish this vision we have adopted, since our founding, the time-tested model of education called “classical Christian education”.

While this educational model existed for over 1500 years in various forms, it fell into decline in the late 1800s due to the rise of industrialization. Over the last 30 years many Christians have discovered the riches of having a rigorous academic course of study married with a robust plan for spiritual formation. The resulting educational renaissance has spawned over 200 like-minded schools across the United States (see for more information). This movement continues to grow and The Cambridge School desires to be a leader among like-minded schools in Southern California.

Philosophy & Distinctives

Distinctly Classical

Cambridge was founded to bring a fully Christian Classical educational experience to San Diego. This time-tested model of education has produced many of the world’s great authors, statesmen, scientists and influencers.


The Cambridge School seeks to provide a distinctly Christian education in the classical tradition which equips students to know, love, and practice that which is true, good, and beautiful and thus prepares them to live purposefully and intelligently in service of God and neighbor.
