The Geneva Christian School provides a unique and exciting educational opportunity for the young people of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre region. The School is dedicated to offering an academically excellent classical education, taught from the perspective of a Christian Worldview. The Geneva Christian School follows the classical approach to education, which is a three-part continuum, called the Trivium.
It consists of:
The Grammar Stage for grades K-6 teaches basics of phonics, math, history, grammar, science, music, art, current events and Bible. Children at this age learn best by chanting rhymes, memorizing and reciting. Much emphasis is placed on songs, hands-on learning and experiments. American sign-language is introduced in Kindergarten. Latin begins in third grade.
The Dialectic Stage for grades 7-8 is also called the Logic Stage. Older students are encouraged to stretch their knowledge and are taught to consider the "how" and "why" of each subject. At this stage, students naturally begin questioning and arguing. This innate nature is carefully directed toward applying their facts, also known as formal logic.
The Rhetoric Stage for grades 9-12 focuses on gathering facts, understanding how they are related and presents conclusions in an attractive and polished manner.

We parents can no longer say that education is the government's job. Increasing funds per student to now some $11,000 per student in certain School Districts, has not proven successful in actual student performance.
What We Do....
We strive to enable each student to reach the top 1% ! When the student is agressively educated during the course of the school day and supported and encouraged at home as parents enforce the priority for top acheivement and helped with his/her curriculum, TOGETHER GREAT THINGS CAN HAPPEN. The Geneva Christian School stands ready to come along side you and your student to develop them to their God-given abilities. The Geneva Christian School has, and always has had, small classroom sizes which allow a more effective educational experience and allows the student the chance to thrive and excel! Our Classical Education model, which follows the "Trivium", in our view, is the best Educational Model a school can employ.
