Pietas Classical Christian is a project that was started in order to offer the rich tradition of Classical education to residents in Brevard County, Florida.

The Headmaster of the program, Dale Stenberg, has over a decade of Classical education experience, as well as formal training while in seminary working on a Master of Divinity with an emphasis on Classical Christian Education. In 2020 Dale and his family moved to Brevard after being approached with the idea of starting a Classical program in Melbourne. After selecting a team of highly competent board members, Dale and his team set out to create a K-6th grade program with one vision in mind: to create virtuous self-learners through gospel-centered, academically rich curriculum, and time-tested methods of instruction to help students grow into wise citizens that live in this present age before the face of God. By God's grace, we are now a fully functional K-12 program. More of the details below. 

The program launched in August of 2021 and is currently in its 3rd academic school year. It has been a very encouraging experience for the staff of Pietas, so far. In our 2022 school year, we increased the number of students from 11 in our first year, to 95. Over the summer, we enrolled an additional 42 students bringing our total student body in Melbourne to 137. During the Fall of 2022, an opportunity to start a second campus in the North end of the county presented itself. The North Brevard campus launched this August with 65 students and almost 20 new teachers. In the words of C.S. Lewis, "Aslan is on the move."

Our resources, however, are insufficient to accommodate the growth, presently. This fundraising campaign was started to help finance our growth. Your donation will help cover our financial deficit incurred with starting a second campus, as well as help us renovate classroom space, pay talented teachers and administrators, purchase materials to improve the classroom environment, and upgrade our systems of operation to make the program more efficient and effective. Your donation would help Pietas greatly during this time of rapid growth, and we are deeply grateful for anything you can give. If you cannot give financially, we would ask that you pray for us, as prayer is the most important element in this project. 

Thank you for reading a little bit about our story, and may the Lord bless you!
