Mission

Boone Prairie School seeks to provide an affordable quality education based on a classical foundation.  Fostering an overall sense of community between the administration, teachers, students and parents.  

Vision

Children learn in various ways.  Our vision is to allow kids to have a balance of recitation, reading, lecture and hands on learning.   Boone Prairie takes seriously the partnership of parents and teachers. The parents of its students play an active role in their children’s studies and in supporting the vision of Boone Prairie.      Students will be intentionally taught the benefits of a virtuous character and will be challenged through the lessons taught within the curriculum to develop and strengthen their character.

Spiritual Instruction
We believe that it is the role of the family and the church to be the source of spiritual instruction for children, and it is the role of the school to support the instruction of the church and family, not to supplant it. The focus of Boone Prairie School is to provide students with an outstanding liberal arts education that is culturally rich in traditional American values in a Christian environment, surrounded by caring teachers and staff, without preference for one denominational set of beliefs over another.
