Help to Support The Lancaster Center for Classical Studies
Like all educational institutions, The Lancaster Center for Classical Studies is unable to cover more than a fraction of its own true operating costs from the revenue produced by tuition alone and at the same time to keep the cost of tuition at an affordable level. We therefore ask all those who share our commitment to the highest possible quality in the education of young minds to help us both to maintain that quality and to keep it as accessible as possible to all who desire to enjoy its benefits.
Please consider making a donation to The Lancaster Center for Classical Studies. Large, small, or in between, every donation is helpful. The Lancaster Center for Classical Studies, also known as The Classical Foundation of Lancaster, is a 501(c)(3) organization, approved as such by the Internal Revenue Service. Your gift should, therefore, be fully tax-deductible. Please note that we are not presently equipped to accept donations online. Therefore, all donations must be made by bank-check.

The Educational Purposes of The Lancaster Center for Classical Studies
The Lancaster Center for Classical Studies is dedicated to demonstrating the educational benefits of the conscientious study of the Latin and Greek languages. Practically speaking, our principal efforts are directed towards helping our students to learn those two ancient languages very well. Underlying this practise, however, are living presuppositions that prove themselves daily in the growth of our students. In the course of learning Latin and Greek well, our students learn the importance of learning well as such, and they learn how to learn well what ever they are aiming to learn, be it Latin or Greek, physics or metaphysics, poetry or calculus, biology or history, music or karate, dancing or painting.
The fundamental formal and syntactical characteristics of the Latin and Greek languages and their distinctive complexities serve to cultivate the full range of human cognitive faculties in the conscientious student. The study of these ancient languages thereby becomes the best possible basic education for the mathematical and natural sciences no less than for the historical and literary sciences or for the fine arts. This fundamental educational potentiality of Latin and Greek studies undercuts the distinction between “science” and “the humanities” or between “science” and “religion”, and it is this deep-seated and wide-ranging educational potentiality that The Lancaster Center for Classical Studies seeks to draw on in offering to its students the opportunity to learn to educate themselves in the best way possible for human beings who desire to realize the full depth and breadth of their distinctively human potentialities, human beings who desire to enter the region of the true growth of the heart, the soul, the mind, and the will of the truly human being. Welcome.
