Walk Through Westminster:
Does the current state of modern education worry you? Do you wonder if there is a better way to teach today’s students?
The answer is Classical Christian Education.
The aim of classical Christian education is not to shelter, but to equip students during their formative years to embrace Christ’s truth across all disciplines. Come and see for yourself why Westminster Academy, Memphis’s only JK-12 Classical Christian School, is unique among the Memphis private school landscape.

Why Come to Westminster?
At Westminster, we want our students’ education to prepare them for the future, not just prepare them to pass a test. Our goals differ from most schools today, with an emphasis on the arts, humanities, and Scripture. We want our students to understand that all truth is God’s truth and it is impossible to learn about anything without the Scriptures at the center of our subjects. This philosophy is reflected in the way we teach our curriculum from JK all the way through graduation.
