We aim to graduate young men and women who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding; who reason persuasively and articulate precisely; who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in the light of the Scriptures; and who do so with eagerness in joyful submission to God. We desire them to recognize cultural influences as distinct from biblical and to be un-swayed towards evil by the former. We aim to find them well-prepared in all situations, possessing both information and knowing how to use it. We desire them to be socially graceful and spiritually gracious, equipped with and understanding the tools of learning, desiring to grow in understanding, yet fully realizing the limitations and foolishness of the wisdom of this world. We desire they have a heart for the lost and the courage to seek to dissuade those who are stumbling towards destruction; that they distinguish true religion from religion in form only; and that they possess the former, knowing and loving the Lord Jesus Christ. We desire them to have all these with humility and gratitude to God. We likewise aim to cultivate these same qualities in our staff at Uvalde Classical Academy. We desire them to be professional and diligent in their work, gifted in teaching, loving their students and their subjects. We desire them to clearly understand classical education, how it works in their classroom, and how their work fits into the whole; they possess a lifelong hunger to learn and grow; have the opportunity to be refreshed and renewed. We desire to see them coach and nurture new staff and serve as academic mentors to students. We look to see them mature in Christ, growing in the knowledge of God with their children and walking with the Lord. We aim to cultivate in our parents a sense of responsibility for the school and to see them well-informed about the goals of our classical and Christ-centered approach. We desire them to grow with the school, be involved in, and be excited about the journey. We aim to help them follow biblical principles in addressing concerns, be inclined to hear both sides of a story before rendering a verdict, and embrace the Scripture's injunctions to encourage and stir up one another to love and good works. Finally, in our relationship with our community, we aim to be above reproach in our business dealings and support the local business community. We further seek to exemplify the unity of the body of Christ, to develop greater fellowship and understanding with the churches, and to bring honor to our Lord in all our endeavors.
