Notes from our Headmaster

January 12, 2021

Last summer, after an intense several months pivoting to online learning in the spring and immediately turning attention to fall reopening plans, our administrative staff was mentally exhausted from the constant stress.

Tidings of Comfort and Joy

December 17, 2020

Each Christmas is a little bit different, and each person sees it a little bit differently. Through the eyes of a child, the season is, of course, the most magical.

She sent all three of her kids to Liberty Classical. She taught 5th graders here for over a decade. In fact, it was not-so-long-ago that she…

A Letter from Mr. Woernle, our Assistant Headmaster

October 29, 2020

Dear Liberty Community, I often get asked what makes Liberty Classical Academy different from other Christian Schools and Private Schools in the Twin Cities. Even though we have excellent academics and indeed emphasize educational excellence as one of our Body of Values, I would like to consider some other distinctives since many other private schools…

Each fall, our seniors take a weekend to connect as a group and set the trajectory for their final year at Liberty Classical.
