We live in a time of lively discussion among Christians about how they will educate their children. This is due in part to the steady decline in both academic and moral standards within the public educational system. But it is also a result of a reevaluation of the intersection between our Christian faith and the culture in which we live. Many are recognizing that even a good public education, rooted as it must be in a pluralistic worldview, is not adequate to prepare Christian children to be salt and light in the world. God must be at the center of education, and not an add-on, if Christian children are to understand their world and conduct themselves in a way which best serves the kingdom of God.
Furthermore, the recent reemergence of interest in classical education is an exciting trend. Both Christians and non-Christians have been discovering the benefits of a classical methodology that was jettisoned about 150 years ago. For most children, a classical education is still the best way of preparing them for whatever vocation into which the Lord calls them. Numerous new classical Christian schools have been started over the past twenty years providing remarkable confirmation of the value of this method.
Samuel Fuller School began in fall 2008 with nine families and twelve students in grades K-3rd and added a grade each year until 2013. Thirty-two families and fifty-one full time students are enrolled in grades K-8th for the 2014/2015 school year, and for the first time this year we have three homeschooled students enrolled in our music and art classes. The school meets in the Christian Education Building of the First Congregational Church in Middleborough, which is conveniently located in the center of southeastern Massachusetts at the intersection of Routes 44 and 105.

Samuel Fuller School has an intelligent and creative faculty with diverse backgrounds and talents. While we are all different, we share some things in common: a deep love and commitment to God and to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a strong love of children, and a commitment to teaching and learning the classical way!
