Association of Classical and Christian Schools

The Association of Classical & Christian Schools (ACCS) is an organization founded in 1994 to encourage the formation of Christian schools using a model of classical education. The association's website lists over 200 members schools.

The classical Christian education movement was launched by the publication in 1991 of a book entitled Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning by Doug Wilson.[1] Wilson was also the founder of one of the first classical Christian schools in Moscow, Idaho, Logos School. The classical Christian education movement has also been influenced by Norms and Nobility by David V. Hicks[2] as well as the CiRCE Institute, founded by Andrew Kern, which exists to promote classical Christian education.

Wilson himself had drawn inspiration from an earlier article published by Dorothy Sayers entitled "The Lost Tools of Learning" (1948). Sayers was a colleague of C.S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. In this article she derided modern education methods and called for a return to the ancient classical trivium.
