Credo Ut Intellegam

Updated: Mar 11

Found in the first chapter of St. Anselm’s Proslogion, Credo ut intellegam, or in English, “I believe in order to understand '', is the motto of Trinity Classical Academy. It is built on the words of the prophet Isaiah found in Isaiah 7:9 and stands on the shoulders of St. Augustine. These words confess that the true, the good, and the beautiful are revealed to humanity through our faith in the redemptive and sustaining work of the Holy Trinity. At TCA, we acknowledge that it is our faith alone which cultivates a correct understanding of the created world and humanity’s unique and God-given dominion over it. We embrace this responsibility and focus on how St. Anselm’s words demonstrate God’s glory to be the ultimate end of any true educational institution. From letter formation and explicit phonics instruction in early education to an in-depth study of Kepler’s work on planetary motion in advanced physics, TCA seeks an understanding of the universe and human nature that places faith as the foundation of, and catalyst for, true understanding.
