Full Souls



Full Souls by Pastor Steve Wilkins (President of the Geneva board of directors) Geneva Academy was started because we saw a need for a type of education that wasn’t being offered in our city, or region –a classical Christian education. It’s important, however, that we be clear about what we mean by “classical Christian education.” […]

Trivium Priest, King, and Prophet

Our Children: The Terror of Hell

St. Paul and the Antithesis



  Today, the Conversion of St Paul is celebrated in many parts of the Christian church. Last year we purchased a print of this event painted by Caravaggio, painted in 1601.
