An innovative school that provides students the opportunity for academic mastery, growth, citizenship, athleticism and artistic discover, Classical Christian School for the Arts was founded in 2005 by Dan and Sylvia Baker.
Having served as Principal, Vice Principal and Guidance Counselor during their 20 + years in private education, the Bakers had a longtime dream of starting a school where they could apply the very best of what they had learned, blending a classical education with cultural influences to provide children with a well-rounded foundation.
Equipped with a passion for education and the arts and a handful of dedicated teachers, the Bakers opened the doors to Classical Christian School for the Arts with an enrollment of just 30 students. Today the school serves over 140 students in grades K – 12. Having successfully fulfilled their dream, but eager to do more, future plans include classroom expansion and a children’s art museum.
Sylvia Baker was diagnosed with cancer in 2001, four years before embarking on the dream of Classical Christian School.
After receiving treatment, she went on to write the book entitled Breast Cancer Be-Attitudes, a sometimes humorous but always faith-based personal look at her journey. She toured the country as a motivational speaker, reaching out to anyone who needed her. Over the next 11 years Mrs. Baker fought a truly remarkable battle with cancer, her strength and faith always visible. In August of 2012, Sylvia Morgan Baker became an angel in heaven’s choir. Her memory and legacy will always live on through the incredible education program she built at Classical Christian School for the Arts.
