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.

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. As provided for above, gifts can be made by credit card or by check.

If you have questions that you would like to ask in advance of making a donation, please contact us. Click the golden link to go to Contact LCCS on this website.


The Educational Purposes of The Lancaster Center for Classical Studies

The Lancaster Center for Classical Studies is dedicated to demonstrating the fundamental and wide-ranging 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 Latin and Greek very well. In the course of learning Latin and Greek well, however, our students learn the importance of sound learning as such; they learn how to work hard, they learn the importance and the rewards of hard work, and they learn to strive to learn well whatever they are aiming to learn, be it Latin or Greek, physics or metaphysics, music or karate, poetry or calculus, dancing or painting, biology or history, astronomy or geography, carpentry or computer engineering. For a concise summary of some of those benefits, click on the golden link Benefits.

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". 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 desiring to realize the full depth and breadth of their distinctively human potentialities, human beings desiring to enter the region of the boundless growth of the heart, the soul, the mind, and the will of the truly human being. Welcome.
