The Value of Classical Education

Download Brochure & Form

At Live Oak Classical School, our approach to education is effective and engaging. Well-trained core teachers and expert elective and language teachers bring a passion for learning through:

  • compelling living history projects 
  • dynamic field trips 
  • creative art mediums and projects
  • competitive athletics in TAPPS  2A
  • advanced Spanish, French, and Latin study 
  • AP calculus, chemistry, and biology
  • narrative Bible teaching and more…

Unfortunately, classical education is not inexpensive. Live Oak derives much of its operational dollars from tuition, but tuition alone is not sufficient to advance such a rich, engaging education. Rather, further enhancement and development of Live Oak’s existing programs can only be funded through financial donations by our supportive community, family, and friends.

About The Acorn Society

Unlike most schools, Live Oak has purposed to generate annual funds without traditional fundraising activities and programs — such as wrapping paper or chocolate bars — in order to allow our students and parents to fully immerse themselves in our learning and community.

Instead, we simply ask parents, families, and friends to join others in giving to the Acorn Society, which successfully provides:

  • support of faculty and staff salaries and benefits
  • scholarship opportunities
  • special programs and activities

A Measure of Community

Each and every gift helps Live Oak strengthen and develop its dynamic programs and classes. Each year, the Acorn Society strives for 100% participation in giving from the Live Oak families in our annual appeal. Participation by families, friends, and staff is an important mark of support of Live Oak’s mission as a community effort.

How to give 

Payments to the Acorn Society can be made by mail, online, or in the office. The easiest way to make a significant gift to the Acorn Society is to divide your gift over the school months through an automatic withdrawal. Forms for automatic withdrawal are available on the Live Oak website or in the office.
